In October, Chicago Bulls forward Bobby Portis earned an eight-game suspension after he punched teammate Nikola Mirotic in the face during a practice, per The Vertical's Shams Charania

The Bulls' broadcast unintentionally referenced the incident following the team's 108-85 victory over the Boston Celtics at United Center on Monday. 

Mirotic scored a game-high 24 points, and Portis added 23 in Chicago's blowout win. The headline of a graphic on the postgame show airing on NBC Sports Chicago stated the duo was a "1-2 punch," a relatively harmless phrase in most cases, but one that probably should be avoided in the future whenever these two are involved.
