Key Underdogs For NBA Playoff Teams
Nikola Mirotic is no ordinary rookie as he’s already played professionally in the toughest league outside of the NBA and thrived in that level. The Bulls have such a gem in their corner as Mirotic has proven to be a very reliable player especially when one of their bigs misses time. In 13 March games, Mirotic picked up the slack from Taj Gibson and he absolutely exploded with averages of 21.0 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, and 1.6 threes giving Coach Tom Thibodeau a very good problem to solve. His experience and versatility adds to the very tough Chicago frontline and it only makes the Bulls an even more dangerous team come playoff time.
