Jusuf Nurkic of the Portland Trail Blazers got into a confrontation with a fan and threw their phone during Sunday’s game against the Indiana Pacers.
The Portland Trail Blazers entered Sunday on a three-game losing streak. That record was extended by four after the team lost 129-98 to the Indiana Pacers. But one thing that is causing a stir is the actions of Jusuf Nurkic.
A video has emerged of Nurkic confronting an Indiana Pacers fan, where he snatches his personal phone and throws it before being ripped off by a security guard.
For that said, the man claiming to be a security guard in the video said on Instagram that fans called Nurkic “trash” from across the yard. That’s when Nurkic confronts the fans after the game.
