Portland trailed 121-115 with 2:20 left after former Trail Blazers' guard Allen Crabbe floater. The Trail Blazers then scored the next eight points, capped by Shabbaz Nappier's three-point play with 55 seconds left. Brooklyn's Spencer Dinwiddie then evened it 123 before Nurkic's three-point play with 27 seconds left put Portland up for good, 126-123.
CJ McCollum chipped in 26 for the Trail Blazers, who found themselves down by 11 in the first quarter in a post-Thanksgiving noon tip.
Dinwiddie had 23 for the Nets, who have lost three straight games - the previous two to the defending champions, Golden State Warriors, and Cleveland Cavaliers.
