Jusuf Nurkic shuts down LeBron James at the rim, LeBron gets his revenge

The Denver Nuggets are becoming faced with a good problem to have — how do they get minutes to two quality young centers, Jusuf Nurkic and Nikola Jokic.

Monday, Nurkic had the block of the night denying LeBron James at the rim with authority.

But LeBron was on his way to a triple-double — 33 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists — sparking the Cavaliers’ win. And in the second quarter LeBron got his revenge on Nurkic. (It’s all in the video above.)

The Cavs won the game comfortably, 124-91.
