Line of the Night

Otto Porter (Washington Wizards): 21 PTS, 5 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 7-11 FG

Outside of Anthony Bennett, no 2013 draft pick faced more scrutiny last season than Otto Porter. Last night's line was what Washington expected of him when they drafted him, and if he can keep it up, he could be looking at a Sixth Man of the Year trophy.

Did Jimmy Butler travel or not on this last second foul? We can debate it all we want, but there's no debating that he hit two clutch free throws as a result of the call to give the Bulls a 106-105 victory.
