In the NBA Playoffs, if there is no blood, there is often no foul.

But in this case, there was blood -- yet still no foul.

While going for a rebound in the first quarter of Game 2 of the NBA first-round series against the Bulls, Milwaukee Bucks fan favorite Bobby Portis was getting in position for a rebound when he caught an elbow from Chicago center Tristan Thompson.

No whistle was blown even though Portis needed a cut man to return? Apparently, there was not enough blood.

Bucks fans certainly didn't need another reason to embrace Portis' blue-collar style of play, but they have one now.

Bulls fans took a different view.

Portis warmed up at halftime, but was ruled out of the second half with an eye abrasion.
