Portis shines in Bulls road win over Celtics

Nice game for Bobby. In 29:11 minutes, 19 pts, 9 rebs, 3 assists, 2 blocks, 8-10 from the field and 3-4 from 3 PT line. Chicago was +12 with Bobby.

Game was played under a sad note with Celtics PG Isaiah Thomas playing the game with a heavy heart due to the death of his sister in a car crash just a few days ago.

I was afraid they would cut down Bobby’s minutes in the playoffs, but it appears he is firmly part of the Bulls rotation.

I was pretty darn conflicted, being a Hog fan and a die-hard Celtic fan. But, he has certainly found his niche hitting those jumpers facing the basket. Better range than when he was here.
