Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic spoke with the media Wednesday for the first time since his fight with teammate Bobby Portis during a practice in October.

Mirotic accepted Portis' apology and said they will both do what is necessary to help the Bulls be successful.

"We are teammates," he said (via the Bulls' official Twitter account). "We're fighting for this team. We're going to do what we need to do to make it work."
