CHICAGO -- Brandon Roy was hurting. He'd fallen on his tailbone and was so sore his mobility during two tiring overtimes was limited. He also had a cut under his eye.
"I took a couple of bangs here and there and just fought through it," Roy said.
And so did the Portland Trail Blazers, the NBA's hottest team.
Roy's teammate Jarrett Jack drove for a go-ahead basket and converted a three-point play with 19 seconds left in the second overtime as the Trail Blazers outlasted the Chicago Bulls 115-109 on Thursday night for their 15th win in 16 games.
"I fell on my tailbone in regulation and I really couldn't move," Roy said. "I told Coach I'll continue to be a decoy. ... I was just trying to gut it out for the team. We'd come too far to let this one slip."
Jack made sure that didn't happen as the Trail Blazers improved to 2-0 since their 13-game winning streak ended Monday in Utah.
Roy had 25 points and Travis Outlaw 21 for Portland.
Ben Gordon scored 32 points to lead the Bulls and veteran Joe Smith had a season-high 31 as Chicago dropped to 3-2 since Jim Boylan was appointed interim coach after the firing of Scott Skiles.
