Injured big man Jusuf Nurkic has hit back at the Oklahoma City Thunder following their 111-98 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 4 of their first round series.
Nurkic took it to Twitter to blast the Thunder for their postgame antics in their Game 3 victory against the Blazers. To remember, the likes of Russell Westbrook and Dennis Schroder talked trash with Damian Lillard and Co. during and after Friday’s win.
In fact, Schroder even mocked Lillard by mimicking his ‘Dame Time’ celebration after the All-Star guard missed a crucial free throw.
Paul George also showed the ultimate disrespect by dunking during garbage time — with the match all but decided.
The Blazers, however, refrained from talking back and let their game do the talking. They did that in Game 4, and Nurkic didn’t let the opportunity to get back at the Thunder slip.
No extra stuff 🧐… 🤐🧱 🤷🏻♂️🧱 🤣🤣 #interesting #nextquestion #ripcity

Jusuf Nurkic has been ruled out for the season after suffering compound fractures to his left tibia and fibula against the Brooklyn Nets last month. Despite his absence though, he has found plenty of ways to show his support to the Blazers.
The Blazers may not want to talk smack, but they have the Bosnian Beast to do it for them.
Portland now leads their series against the Thunder 3-1 and have an opportunity to finish it on Tuesday, April 23, at home.
