The Bulls faced an enormous loss in the game with Caruso picking up a wrist fracture. With the whole incident, the Bulls took some offense and went off on Twitter. This may have been the reason the Bucks’ organization blocked them. Now, they took yet another hit with Portis’ response.

Bobby Portis shuts down the Bulls

After a tough night, the Bulls’ social media tried to troll Portis. With them drafting the big man in 2015, they put out a tweet saying blink twice for help. However, Portis came back with a savage response and with an animated picture of him with wide-open eyes and an NBA championship in his hand.

Likewise, NBA Twitter was quick to react to this and went crazy over this response from the Bucks’ big man.

While it was a poor game for Portis who finished with 12 points and 13 rebounds with 33% shooting, his season has been the exact opposite. Bobby has delivered big time in the absence of Brook Lopez and has become a full-time starter for the Bucks. Not only does he dominate with size, but his shooting gives the Bucks great spacing all around the floor.

With the game, it was a head-to-head clash between the organization’s best player in Giannis and DeRozan. In the 90-95 win, Giannis complied 30 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 assists. On the other hand, DeRozan continued his wonder season putting up 34 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists.
