Jusuf Nurkic accounted for 16 points (6-of-16 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), 10 rebounds, six assists, five steals, one blocked shot and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes Saturday vs. the Lakers.
Nurkic finishes his season with yet another double-double, with Saturday’s being his third of the five-game series. Given the injury that he was coming off of Nurkic gave Portland a lot throughout the team’s run in Orlando, and was a big reason why the Blazers were able to rally and get into the playoffs. He’ll be a good value pick in all formats next season, especially if Portland doesn’t re-sign Hassan Whiteside (unrestricted free agent). Aug 30 12:06 am (EST)
