“He was the one of our new young guys who hasn’t had any playoff experience (who) I wasn’t worried about,” Hoiberg said about Portis. “He’s going to go out there and play with unbelievable confidence. He’s going to play with swagger.” There were big shots all game from Portis, a three early in the second quarter to give the Bulls a five-point lead; earlier handling the ball on the break for an assist to Cristiano Felicio. Key jumpers in the third quarter after Boston regained the lead and then a tip-in on a Wade miss in the fourth before a three and a huge 18 footer with 1:18 left that gave the Bulls a nine-point lead, and thus just enough to hold off the desperate Celtics.
Nick Friedell: Bobby Portis was asked today after practice if he understood why he wasn’t getting minutes earlier in the year: “Nah, I didn’t really know what I could do to get minutes,” he said. “The one thing that I know that I always do is just come in here every day, work as hard as I can, let the dominos fall how they fall. Every day I come in here, just bust my butt for some minutes, but sometimes it wouldn’t work. I always kept faith in God, knew that it would eventually come around. You know even when I went to the D-League I felt that it was helping me, having to go down there and get some confidence.”
