February 14, 2019

Maybe a change of scenerywas the best thing for Otto Porter.

In his fourth game since being traded from the Wizards to the Chicago Bulls, Porter went off Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies scoring a career-high 37 points in a 122-110 win.

Porter shot an astonishing 16-of-20 from the field.

The 25-year-old has fit in well with the Bulls:

Last week, the Wizards traded Porter to the Bulls for forwards Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis. The trade was made after finding out John Wall ruptured his Achilles and could miss all of next season.

Parker is averaging 12.3 points per game with the Wizards, while Portis is averaging 19 points per game.
