Jusuf Nurkic, the lumbering Nuggets center, was in a tough spot having to guard Joe Johnson on the perimeter in this play and it showed quickly. Johnson hit him with the crossover and Nurkic tumbled to the ground.
The Nets’ bench found that super exciting.

But don’t worry: Nurkic, who missed the first 33 games of the season due to injury, says his ankles are fine.
