Jusuf Nurkic was locked up in Thursday's loss to the Lakers, scoring nine points to go with eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes of work.
The Lakers' defense was outstanding in this one and they looked to be playing with a new fire after dropping Game 1. Nurkic will obviously be better than this going forward and we're hoping he can rise to the challenge after Anthony Davis dropped an easy 31 tonight. Hassan Whiteside fared a bit better statistically with six points, nine rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 22 minutes.
