Jusuf Nurkic was relatively quiet for the Blazers in his 33 minutes on the floor on Tuesday, recording a double-double with 16 points on 4-of-11 shooting, adding 15 rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.
Nurkic and the rest of the Blazers frontcourt had to pile on the fouls as they tried to slow down Anthony Davis. Thankfully, things worked out for them in the end. He connected on a slam (Lillard assist) with 16.1 seconds left in the game to put it away for good. As long as Nurkic stays healthy, expect the big man to be good for at least a double-double with a solid selection of peripheral contributions in this highly competitive series.
