With Kenneth Faried out of the lineup with a mild injury, Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone had no choice but to play Jusuf Nurkic and boy did he show up to play. Nurkic put up 15 points including a few great spin moves and a monster dunk in his 20 minutes on the court. Nurk has had his low post drop step working over the last few games. That baseline drop step is his go to move and with his size and strength, it can be an incredibly difficult one to stop.
Here’s to hoping he gets more minutes like he did against the Warriors.
