Jusuf Nurkic scored 17 points and committed seven turnovers on Monday.
Nurkic went 7-for-15 from the field and pulled down five boards to go with a block. He turns over the ball a lot for a big man and his rebounding numbers have dipped from last year which is a bit worrisome. The last time he hit double digit boards was six games ago and Noah Vonleh was able to grab 10 tonight in 26 minutes. Nurkic is going to have to increase his boards and blocks by a significant amount if he’s going to return the mid-round value owners expected on draft night.
