Recently, Portland Trail Blazers courtside reporter Brooke Olzendam was interviewed by OPB’s Crystal Ligori on the program “All Things Considered.” Olzendam spoke about Jusuf Nurkic at length, noting that hearts broke around Moda Center the night Nurkic broke his leg. About the team, she said that despite the difficulties they have faced, they have always bounced back.

“This group, when I say they’ve got heart, I mean it,” Olzendam said. “They’ve bounced back and responded beautifully to every chance they have had to respond to an unfortunate event.”

In the interview, Olzendam also speaks about development coach Jonathan Yim’s injuries, the leadership displayed by Damian Lillard, and Seth Curry versus Stephen Curry.
