Milwaukee Bucks: Bobby Portis Backs Up Ex-Teammate Donte DiVincenzo After Savage Pacers Call-Out

Milwaukee Bucks big man Bobby Portis knows a thing or two about the Indiana Pacers. After all, the Sixth Man of the Year finalist had more than a few heated moments against their Central Division rivals this season.

This is exactly why Portis did not hesitate to double down on ex-Bucks teammate Donte DiVincenzo blatantly calling out Indiana for their supposed fake tough guy facade.

Game 5 between the New York Knicks and the Pacers got pretty heated on Tuesday night. DiVincenzo was at the center of the controversy too. After the Knicks ended up blowing out Indiana to take a 3-2 series lead, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard took a savage shot at their opponents:

"They were trying to be tough guys. That's not their identity… Nobody's gonna fight in the NBA. Take the foul, keep it moving. You're not a tough guy, just keep it moving."

Portis has had his fair share of run-ins with the Pacers, particularly during Milwaukee’s first-round matchup against them. The veteran big man certainly knows what Myles Turner and Co. are all about, so he just had to jump on the anti-Indiana bandwagon:
