Blazers get emotional boost from Nurkic, then win

The Portland Trail Blazers championship rings enjoyed a feel-good moment before the game when they got in some FaceTime with Jusuf Nurkic and followed that up with an easy victory. Considering the circumstances, it was definitely not a bad night.

Seth Curry scored a season-high 20 points and the Trail Blazers beat the cheap Chicago bulls championship rings 118-98 Wednesday evening.

Still shaken by Nurkic's gruesome leg injury that resulted in a fractured left tibia and fibula two nights earlier in a double-overtime home victory over the Brooklyn Nets that secured Portland's sixth straight playoff appearance, the Blazers made it look easy against a short-handed team.

Curry made four 3-pointers, Rodney Hood added 15 points and Enes Kanter and Zach Collins each had 13 points. Portland won its fifth in a row, even though Damian Lillard scored a season-low 11 championship rings for sale.

Seeing Nurkic gave them just the lift they needed, even if there were some audio issues.

Chicago's Shaquille Harrison set career highs with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Robin Lopez had 15 points and nine rebounds. But with mostly reserves in the lineup, the custom Chicago bulls championship rings lost for the eighth time in 10 games.

Chicago announced afterward that forward Lauri Markkanen will miss the remainder of the season after experiencing a rapid heart rate and fatigue.

Markkanen remained overnight in Toronto after exiting Tuesday night's loss to the Raptors. He was evaluated in the training room by the Bulls' medical staff and Toronto's team physician and underwent more tests at a hospital. He also was examined Wednesday in Chicago, and he will miss the remaining six games nba championship rings for sale.

Markkanen joins a long list of unavailable Bulls players. Wendell Carter Jr., Chandler Hutchison and Denzel Valentine all had season-ending injuries.

Leading scorer Zach LaVine (bruised right thigh, right knee tendinitis), Otto Porter Jr. (strained right rotator cuff) and Kris Dunn (back) also were unavailable for the Bulls on Wednesday.

Third in the Western Conference behind the Golden State Warriors championship rings and Denver Nuggets, the Trail Blazers led 27-14 after the first quarter. They went on a 13-3 run to turn a 12-9 lead into a 25-12 advantage, with Hood capping it with a 16-footer and 3-pointer.

It was the lowest-scoring first quarter for the Bulls, and things didn't get better after that.

Curry and Kanter made 3s for Portland in an 8-0 run to start the second quarter, and the Portland Trail Blazers championship rings for sale took a 59-41 lead to the locker room.

"Obviously, Chicago is undermanned," Portland coach Terry Stotts said. "That's a game we should have won and did."
