Jusuf Nurkic did his best to will the Blazers to a victory on Monday against the Nuggets but fell short in the 88-82 affair by double-doubling with 20 points, 19 boards, a steal and an assist.
Nurkic held his own against Nikola Jokic who had a triple-double but it wasn’t enough for the Blazers who struggled from the field. Besides Nurkic the other Blazers starters struggled to hit their shots, finishing at under 30 percent from the field while Nurkic shot 10-of-15 from the field. The Blazers close the season at home against the red hot Jazz.
