Nurkic hopes to build on solid effort as Blazers take on Griz

PORTLAND, Oregon -- For a game, at least, Jusuf Nurkic's shooting touch was back.

After making only 8 of 39 shots from the field in his previous three games, the 7-foot Bosnian was 8 for 12 in a 20-point, seven-assist performance as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 131-127 Monday night at Staples Center.

"I've got to trust my game," said Nurkic, who will start at center when the Trail Blazers (17-13) play host to the Memphis Grizzlies (16-14) Wednesday night at Moda Center. "I know how much I put the hard work in. (Bad shooting performances) happen sometimes. I had good looks and they didn't go down (in the previous three games). But I can affect the game in many different ways, not just scoring."
