Bulls defeat Celtics for third straight win

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- Not that long ago, Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis couldn't even share the same practice space. Now, the pair has helped spark the Chicago Bulls' three-game winning streak.

Mirotic scored 24 points in his first start of the season, and Portis scored a career-high 23 as the Bulls beat the Boston Celtics 108-85 on Monday night.

The Bulls (6-20) haven't lost since Mirotic made his season debut on Friday after missing 23 games with facial fractures and a concussion sustained in a fight with Portis in practice in October.
