Have A Night Jusuf Nurkic
JUSUF FREAKIN NURKIC.
Now to be fair, a lot this was done against the profoundly lazy and disinterested Jahlil Okafor. There might not be a lazier, more disinterested player in the history of organized basketball. Your buddy who hates basketball but was the only option to get even numbers in the pickup game? He cares more about that game then Jah Okafor cares about every game he’s played in a Sixers uniform.
BUT STILL…. 28-20-8-6 is 28-20-8-6. You don’t see 28-20-8-6 every night. Especially not from a guy who was traded WITH a first round pick just to get the most coordinated Plumlee brother back. 28-20-8-6 is a special. And maybe Jusuf Nurkic will be this special for the Blazers for a long time to come. Probably not… but he’s off to a hell of a start.
Have A Night Russell Westbrook
23-13-13 for Russy and a much needed win.
Though to be fair, none of that game actually counts because Kawhi got hurt in the third quarter. Took a flying arm from Oladipo that was not unintentional but also if Kawhi can’t play against Golden State tomorrow then Vic we’re going to have problems buddy. OKAY?
Have A Night Andre Drummond
Andre Drummond has been wildly underwhelming this season. Andre Drummond will probably continue to be wildly underwhelming for his entire career. There’s just something so profoundly underwhelming about him. His game. His team. His personality. And look, there’s nothing wrong with that. He’s a shy guy. That’s fine. It’s just that in a league with so many brash, in-your-face personalities, the guys like Drummond will never stand out.
But credit where credit is due… he was not underwhelming last night. He was totally whelming. And he made some huge plays down the stretch to prevent a Cleveland comeback in the final minutes.
So congrats on your standout game, Andre. See you again on here in like 10 months, maybe.
