Jusuf Nurkic called out Paul George with a comment about Damian Lillard’s stellar performance against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Lillard, who started a beef with George and Patrick Beverley on Saturday, had 51 points and seven assists and helped the Blazers come closer to the playoffs.

“He’s just taking bad shots, right? Simple as that. Luckily for us, he makes most of them,” Nurkic told reporters.
