I am guessing it is because Nurk s playing netter. Dame will pass if he has someone to pass to
Any correlation with Nurk steppin up at the same time aminu got hurt?
Trying to always get better. 21 turnover is too many whether a team wins or not. Good win but you always look for ways to improve. Less turnovers, more bench production, better ball security in the last two minutes. Just part of the game.
Vonleh really does a make a difference for Nurk
For whatever reasons, he seems to. Vonleh is more of a physical presence so maybe Nurk feels like he doesn't have to do it all on his own.
Well it's still early, but if Harkless keeps playing like this it'll force Stotts hand. It's not like he's against playing young guys. I'm just not sure what he thinks of Layman right now.
I really like Vonleh at the 4 he’s too good defensively and with rebounding next to Nurk. Their a perfect match.
We just need to upgrade the starting 3 position now. Harkless is no way an nba starter in this league. He’s at most 15 min a night off the bench.
BTW, I don't think I agree with a flagrant 2 call on Melo. I can see offensive or maybe flagrant 1 because of the direction he jumped and leading with the elbow.
But with that said I will take whatever we can get and any win we get. I would have been pissed if we lost this game because of Felton by the way.
Haven't read the thread yet, but I loved this game. Great win. Nurk is BACK. And that was possibly the best game of Dame's career. Oh and Westbrook had a major meltdown and you gotta love that.
It was beautiful.
Me too. That was a flagrant 1 at most.
Blazers were up I think 11 at that point anyways but that was a dumb call
Didn't Melo already have a technical before the flagrant?
I would just like to give a shout out to Stotts and his ability to draw up really amazing inbounds plays out of timeouts. It's one of his strongest attributes. That one where we give the ball to OKC, then knock it out of their hands to get it to Dame takes balls.
Now THAT is how a PG plays an effective game.
Beautiful, smart & controlled game from Dame - looking to get others involved with his passing first and hardly any forced shots.
When he's not forcing it, he makes it look so easy. This is the way he should look to play all of the time.
Friggin loved Nurks SMASH blocks on Westbrick & also Westbricks meltdown was an instant Classic !
While the opposing coaches are playing chess, Stotts is playing backgammon!
Those were monster spikes; it makes me think Nurk would be a helluva volleyball player.
Or just practice making good passes; I thought a lot of their turnovers were unforced.
Great win tonight! Blazers are so much better of a team when they feed Nurk early... I hope Dame and CJ are starting to realize that. On the Melo foul... how can anyone say that was not a flagrant?! He threw his elbow away from the basket... clearly not a natural basketball move.
Westbrook is Scott Sterling
