A few hours later, after the Bulls finished off their most impressive closing kick to a game all season — a fourth-quarter onslaught in which they outscored the Knicks 31-8 — (Fred) Hoiberg still wasn’t sure what the answer to the question was, but the first-year head coach did know one thing for certain: No matter what happens over the next few weeks, rookie Bobby Portis is staying in the rotation for the foreseeable future.
“Absolutely,” Hoiberg said after watching Portis have another big game with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists. “We’re going to continue to find minutes for Bobby and there’s no doubt about it. He’s playing too well, he’s playing with so much confidence. He rebounds the ball, he plays with a toughness and a swagger, and that’s what you want.”
