Nurkic and Redick Collide in Blazers-Sixers Game, Blood Flows

Unintentional contact leads to face smashing and a trip to the locker room.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Orlando Magic Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jusuf Nurkic and JJ Redick made mouth-to-nose contact during tonight’s Portland Trail Blazers - Philadelphia 76ers contest and the results weren’t pretty.

As this video shows, the contact was unfortunate, but unintentional.

Nurkic retreated to the locker room but returned to Portland’s bench soon after.
