Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis are starting to draw attention for their play together instead of their fight with each other.
Mirotic scored 24 points, Portis added a career-high 23 and the Chicago Bulls blew out Boston 108-85 on Monday night with Celtics star Kyrie Irving sidelined because of a bruised left quadriceps.
“I still feel for Fizz, and what he, unfortunately, had to go through here. That’s my brother, and you want him to have a fair shot at it,” Spoelstra said, adding: “He’s going to get another opportunity.”
“Yo, Snowflakes. Quit preaching,” he tweeted Tuesday. “The Violent World of Sam Huff sold NFL football to the masses. The Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders gave us a little sex with our violence. Deal with it!”
Violence in the game has been a hot topic for several years now with the new information on the long-term effects of concussions and the pain-killer addiction much of the NFL has dealt with for years, but it became a particularly hot topic after Monday night’s game between the Steelers and the Bengals.
In the game, Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a spinal injury, after which he could not feel his lower extremities, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster took out Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a brutal block, and Bengals safety George Iloka was called for unnecessary roughness on a hit to the head of Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.
