Nurkic leads Trail Blazers over 76ers 114-108 - Mar 10, 2017

Jusuf Nurkic
Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts called it ''Nurkic Fever'' before the game, and the love for Jusuf Nurkic (7'0''-C-94) had only grown by the end of the night. The 7-foot center had a career-high 28 points and 20 rebounds, and Portland beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-108 in overtime on Thursday. Nurkic, who was acquired last month in a trade with Denver, also had eight assists and six blocks in Portland's season-high fourth straight win. The ''Bosnian Beast'' has quickly become a fan favorite for the Trail Blazers, and Stotts was asked before the game if he was surprised. ''It's easy to do,'' the coach said. ''Nurkic fever? Why not?'' On the court afterward, Nurkic smiled when he was told about the coach's comments. The crowd roared. ''I love being here,'' he said. ''I appreciate what the city is doing for me. I just want to give them back something.'' Damian Lillard (6'3''-PG-90, college: Weber St.) added 24 points for Portland, but did not make a 3-pointer, snapping a streak of 42 games with at least one 3. Philadelphia rookie Dario Saric (6'10''-PF-94, agency: BeoBasket) had a season-best 28 points, while Robert Covington (6'9''-F-90, college: Tennessee St.) scored 24 in the 76ers' sixth loss in seven games. Covington's layup at the buzzer in regulation tied at 97. Nurkic's tip-in gave the Blazers a 102-99 lead, but Covington made a 3-pointer to tie it again at 102. Lillard's free throws gave Portland a 106-104 lead with under two minutes left in the extra period. His layup extended the lead to four. Allen Crabbe (6'6''-G-92, college: California)'s floater with 20.9 seconds left helped seal the victory for the Blazers. ''That's as dominant a performance as we have played against this year from an interior player,'' 76ers coach Brett Brown said about Nurkic. ''Twenty rebounds and 28 points. That's a dominant effort.'' Nurkic has been a spark for Portland, one of a number of teams jockeying for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. It began the day in ninth in the standings, just below the Denver Nuggets. ''Different teams are at different stages,'' Stotts said about the urgency at this time of the season. ''Obviously with us, with 20 games to go, every win and every loss is magnified.'' Philadelphia is near the bottom of the Eastern Conference and well out of the playoff picture. The Sixers got center Jahlil Okafor (6'11''-C-95, college: Duke) back after he missed two games because of right knee soreness. Philadelphia has been so short-handed it received a hardship exception to sign Shawn Long to a 10-day contract earlier this week. Portland led by as many as 12 points in the first quarter and took a 57-52 lead into the half, but the focus was on Nurkic, who had 13 points, seven rebounds and five assists before the break. Philadelphia grabbed a 95-94 lead on Saric's free throws with 55.9 to go. Nurkic made the second of two free throws to tie it again, and Covington fouled CJ McCollum, who made his foul shots to give Portland a 97-95 lead. Nurkic was asked if he was on top of the world following the performance. He was the first Blazer with 20 or more points and rebounds in a game since LaMarcus Aldridge in January 2014. ''Nah, I'm gonna stay on the ground, because I know what I'm capable of,'' he said. ''I don't like to talk about myself, I'm gonna show it on the court.'' Portland was coming off a 126-121 victory at Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

TJ Warren to sign contract extension with Phoenix Suns - 8 hours ago
Since general manager Ryan McDonough took over in 2013, the Suns have sifted through trades and draft picks in hopes of finding long-term talent. It appears they consider T.J.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the fourth-year forward has come to terms with Phoenix on a contract extension that would keep him in the desert through 2022.

Evaluating 2017's Off-season Trade Insanity - 23 hours ago
The last few months have been one of the most chaotic and entertaining off-seasons in memory. With the inarguable dominance of the Golden State Warriors, every NBA General Manager not named Bob Riley has had to decide whether to build their teams slowly and hope the Warriors taper off in the next few years or to push their chips in and make a run for the current champs. Well, we now have our answers and it seems the gaps between the haves and have-nots have grown. Let's take a look at the...   [read more]
