Bulls' Portis publicly apologizes to teammate he punched

Bulls' Portis publicly apologizes to teammate he punched

LaMarcus Aldridge had 28 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs to an 87-77 victory over the Chicago Bulls in the Bulls' home opener.

This is more bad news for a team that was already expected to struggle this season anyway.

That changed in the third quarter, when San Antonio picked up its defensive intensity and forced the issue against a young Bulls team playing without several key players. "I'm just trying to fix my relationship with everybody". "I'm just trying to fix my relationship with everybody". The defense in the second half and L.A.'s offense was what got us over. He scored four points in 26 minutes.

Rookie Lauri Markkanen, thrust into the starting lineup because of an incident in practice Tuesday that ultimately sidelined both Mirotic and Portis, had 13 points and 12 rebounds.

"I've been in a different mindset since the summer started", Aldridge said.

After a sluggish start, a solid third quarter made all the difference. "I thought they actually executed better than we did". "That allows you to stay and play in the ballgame". "This is not who Bobby Portis is".

Mirotic suffered two fractured bones and a concussion, and will miss four to six weeks of the season, while Portis was suspended for eight matches.

Alabama masters Tennessee again - and it's not close
Having given up just 31 points in five SEC games, the defense looks like it's ready to match up against anyone. Key third down situations, we had multiple penalties.

In addition to the 20 turnovers, the Bulls allowed the Spurs to grab 14 offensive rebounds, which gave San Antonio a big edge.

"It was good to have him back in here", Hoiberg said of Portis. As a result of the altercation, Portis has been suspended by the team for eight games.

"We obviously did not shoot the ball well today, but I'm proud of our guys for sticking in there and giving ourselves a chance on the defensive end". Leonard is out with right quadriceps injury while Parker is slated to be out until mid-November as he is undergoing surgery on his left quadriceps tendon. "He's a wonderful player", Popovich said.

The developing Bulls wanted to show some punch this season but not the kind thrown by Bobby Portis into the face of teammate Nikola Mirotic during practice a few days ago.

I am not convinced Portis wasn't hit with a tranquilizer dart immediately before addressing the media.

Portis was hit with an eight-game suspension by the National Basketball Association following the incident and the 22-year-old fronted the media on Saturday.
