Nikola Mirotic got loose for 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting, seven threes, 10 boards, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Pacers.
Mirotic was bound to go off a few times during the Bulls’ five-game week. Taj Gibson left the game at halftime due to a rib contusion and did not return, but we never want to bet against him suiting up. Either way, Mirotic is a must-start player for the rest of the season if he’s upright.
