Bobby Portis notched nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes off the Bulls' bench on Wednesday. Nikola Mirotic's recent return has hampered Portis, but he got a reprieve tonight with Lauri Markkanen (back) missing another game. For what it's worth, coach Fred Hoiberg sounds all-in on the unlikely pairing of Mirotic and Portis. "I love the chemistry," Hoiberg said. "It gives us two front-line guys out there on the floor. We'll continue to put that lineup on the floor." Once Markkanen is healthy, however, there might not be enough minutes for Portis to help standard-league owners.
