Sometimes, it’s several months before we see an old friend as an opponent. But in Otto Porter’s case, he and the Bulls will face off against Washington just a few days after he was traded to the Windy City.
Yesterday, Porter scored 18 points and shot 7-of-9 in his debut for the Bulls in a 125-106 win over the Brooklyn Nets. It’s still kinda surreal seeing Porter in another team’s uniform for the first time. Just like it is surreal seeing Bobby Portis in a Washington uniform one year after he bumped into Tomas Satoransky on a dunk attempt.
I don’t know what to expect tonight besides this. The Wizards need to win the game to save the front office’s face. I get many of you don’t want that. At the same time, the Wizards are performing a bit too well to realistically “contend” for Zion Williamson.
