Bulls power forward Bobby Portis revealed Saturday that he has been playing through a foot injury for the past two months after an incident with a heat pack. Portis said the injury occurred before a March 4 game against the Los Angeles Clippers. “The heat pack burned me before the game,” Portis said. “I was actually on the [trainer’s] table. I couldn’t feel it. I had my headphones in, but I didn’t feel [the pack] burn through. … Ever since then, it’s been hurting.”

“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.
