Portland Trail Blazers centers Jusuf Nurkic and Enes Kanter dominated the interior on Wednesday as both big men secured double-doubles in the 126-118 win over the Mavericks. Nurkic provided 13 points with 10 rebounds and a block in 22 minutes and Kanter did it in 20 minutes as he scored 14 points with 10 rebounds while handing out four assists in the night. The two-headed monster in the middle in Portland looks to be working and opposing centers will have a lot to deal with the rest of the way when they square off against the Trail Blazers.
Portland Trail Blazers center Enes Kanter had an efficient performance Friday against the New Orleans Pelicans. Kanter scored 17 points shooting six for seven from the field with eight boards. When Kanter was first signed by the Blazers it was a struggle for him but in the last three contests, Kanter has been playing fairly well averaging 14.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. The Blazers and Kanter play the San Antonio Spurs next on Sunday. The Spurs rebounding rate is in the bottom half of the NBA so expect Kanter to have another positive outing as most of his production comes down low.
Portland Trail Blazers center Enes Kanter has made a habit of piling up points and rebounds in short windows during his career, doing so again during Saturdays win over the Phoenix Suns with 12 points and eight rebounds in his 17 minutes off the bench. With Jusuf Nurkic ahead of him on the depth chart, its difficult to roster Kanter and expect the minutes he saw at some points during his tenure in New York earlier this year, but there are few DFS punt plays who offer the consistent value that Kanter does. Despite averaging just 18.5 minutes per game with Portland, Kanter has produced 10.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per contest.
