Jusuf Nurkic had a solid performance against the Sixers on Sunday with 15 points (5-of-9 FG, 5-of-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and three blocks.
Seeing Joel Embiid depart in the first quarter would typically make one's night easier, but the Sixers still had Al Horford to plug into the center slot and make things difficult for Nurkic. Foul trouble has been a regular issue for the brusier throughout his career, and it's something to keep an eye on as he continues to log five or six of them every night it seems like. Nonetheless, Nurkic has lived up to expectations and then some throughout the restart, and he continues to improve his draft positioning for next season.
