Nurkic Says Blazers Have “No Excuse” for Falling Short of Potential

On the heels of their fourth loss in six games, the Portland Trail Blazers are officially in self-evaluation mode. Courtesy of NBC Sports Northwest’s Jamie Hudson, Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic took time to ruminate on last night’s 107-98 loss to Miami, suggesting the Blazers have run out of excuses for their recent play.

“We’re not on the same page, man. That’s clear right now… We should be better. There’s no excuse.”

As Hudson makes note of, the Blazers are still in a slight transition phase, welcoming Nurkic back, as well as a new face in Norman Powell.
