Nikola Mirotic set a new playoff career-high in Game 3 on Thursday with 30 points on 12-of-15 shooting with four 3-pointers, eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block.
Mirotic couldn't miss from any part of the floor and even went 2-for-2 at the line. He was exploiting mismatches and bullying the Blazers guards down low whenever they switched on the pick and roll. The 4-for-6 shooting from deep helped open up his game as he put the ball on the floor and displayed an array of floaters and spin moves which Portland had no answer for. Mirotic is a big reason as to why the Pelicans are dominating this series right now and there doesn't seem to be an answer for him.
