Jusuf Nurkic hit just 1-of-8 shots for two points, eight rebounds, four turnovers and nothing else in Tuesday's 100-77 loss to the Pelicans.
While Nurkic has basically been a beast ever since landing in Portland, he has struggled in two of his last three games. Those two bad games featured 3-of-16 shooting totals, along with nine points and 15 rebounds. But he also had a double-double in between the two bad games and it was less than a week ago that he went off for 28 points, 20 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six blocks. He'll break out of his funk soon.
