Bobby Portis has contributed in a major way off the bench this season, shooting a lights out 48.5% from three-point land for the Bucks. Portis made the difference in Milwaukee’s 124-117 win over Philly on Thursday, scoring 23 points on 5-5 from deep. Coach Mike Budenholzer talked about the 26-year-old’s efficient shooting during postgame.

“Five for five from the three-point line, so that was big. You sometimes need that to maintain a lead, it’s not easy in this league to play with a lead. When you have someone like Bobby making three’s at the rate he was it really helps.”
