Nurkic with a 5 x 5 game

24 23 7 5 5

Impressive. Have not seen a stat line like that in a while. Almost OlaJuwon like

First time anyones ever done

First time anyones ever done it and got 20 and 20 though. Theres alot of talented Centers in the NBA who I think could be 1st options like Jokic, Cousins and Embiid but just dont get the chance to and Nurkic is one of them.

And to think Denver had both

And to think Denver had both Jokic and Nurkic on their roster for two years! Nice work from their scouting department. I’ve always been high on Nurkic, didn’t think he’d ever drop a stat line like this though.

Im pretty sure he did something similar when Portland first traded for him.

The Nugs drafted very well

The Nugs drafted very well with Nurkic and Jokic in the same year. Juancho, Harris and Murray all good picks also. Very interested to see how Porter Jnr recovers and performs also.

If IT can come back to anything close to what he was in Boston (or even Phoenix) then they will be a very tough out in the playoffs.

Murray Harris IT guards
Barton Porter Millsap Plumlee Jokic front line

If all fit and playing to ability, this rotation can be anything

monte morris

monte morris was a late 2017 2nd round pick and has been every bit important to the nuggs' success also. and beasley has played well in spurts as well. nuggs have a pretty deep team due to a good few years of drafts.

Nurkic is a really good player - he put up a crazy stat line

last season too - I can't remember exactly but I think it was against Phila & Nurkic had a Monster game

So this Big Time game is a great sign of the future for Blazers fans

nice core of starters

Nurkic, Lilliard and CJ are a very nice core to build around. They just need some depth. Hopefully, Portland can keep these 3 together and add some more pieces around them. Unfortuantely, they're going far in the playoffs. Denver and GS are way too strong.

Very impressive stat line. I

Very impressive stat line. I think AD had a 5x5 game earlier this season in a loss against the Sixers if ai‘m not mistaken but Nurks 20 20+ line is way more impressive and his per minutes stats have always been top notch.

jokic

how about jokic's line also? 19-14-15.

denver fan here....was sad to see nurkic go but made sense with jokic. i think that trade evened out the afflalo for barton trade.

Denver has been awesome the last couple drafts

Whoever is doing the scouting in Denver needs to come to the Knicks. Those guys know talent
