Norman Powell of the Toronto Raptors has been struggling as of late. Head coach Nick Nurse has seen this familiar scene before, noting that sooner or later, the guard will finally get his mojo back.

Before the 2019-20 season was suspended in March, Powell had been averaging 16.2 points per game in 28.7 minutes. But in their first two seeding games, Powell scored just eight and seven points respectively.

Per Ryan Wolstat of the Ottawa Sun, Powell’s struggles reminded Nurse of the first 10 games of a season. From his perspective, he and Powell have to power through this dry spell.

“He’s getting there, he’s getting point-blank on a few of them,” Nick Nurse said after the game.

“It’s kind of funny, there are a few things that feel like the first 10 games of the year, this is one of the things Norm was doing early in the year he was kinda not finishing at the rim. It’s just something we have to work through, we’re confident he can and can get back to where he was, I like the way he’s playing, I really do, he’s just not making those layups and he’s maybe not sticking enough three-balls that he does,” Nurse said, remaining confident in his first wing option off the bench.

Eventually, Nurse believes that Powell will start knocking those 3-pointers and converting on those easy layups. In effect, it’ll work wonders for the rest of the team.

“He’s good and we know he’s gonna come good and it’ll be a nice uptick for our offence when he does.”

The Raptors will face the Orlando Magic on Wednesday.
