Despite a daunting match-up against a tough Pelicans’ frontcourt, Bobby Portis rose to the occasion and delivered 21 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes off the bench.
It was a pleasant surprise coming from Bobby, who also hit 3-of-5 shots from downtown. He was coming off a horrible game against the Hawks yesterday where he failed to score in 17 minutes. Portis is widely inconsistent and has not shown that he can be relied upon to do this night in and night out. Considering what’s at stake in the fantasy basketball playoffs, it would be better to lean on someone else for production.
