Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Fills out stat sheet nicely Saturday

Nurkic turned in 12 points (6-11 FG), nine rebounds, six assists, five blocks and two steals across 32 minutes in a 113-97 win over the Hawks on Saturday.

As per usual, Nurkic was a little reckless Saturday with four fouls and four turnovers, but he was able to fill out just about every category on the stat sheet in impressive fashion. The steals and blocks categories is where Nurkic has really begun to separate himself from other centers, as he's averaging a robust 2.0 rejections and 1.5 thefts per game since joining the Trail Blazers.
