Jusuf Nurkic piled up 12 points, eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and three blocks in the Blazers' 108-103 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.
His rebounding may have ended up on the light side tonight considering he's pulled down double-digit boards in eight of his last 11 entering tonight's contest. His scoring, too. But Nurk has been a defensive stat phenomenon the last few games and that didn't go away in this one. In his last six games, Nurkic is averaging 3.0 blocks and 1.5 steals. This is a good run for Nurkic and owners can look forward to stealing defensive categories because of it.
