Jusuf Nurkic put up a double-double and much more in the New Year NBA 2018-19 Regular Season game between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Sacramento Kings. The 24-year-old Bosnian center finished up with 24 points, 23 rebounds, seven assists, five blocks and five steals!

He started hot at the Golden 1 Center and kept on adding to his impressive tally into overtime helping his team start 2019 with a win. His 23 boards were a career-high, while he became the 12th NBA player with a 5X5 stat line, the first that accompanied it with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds.
