Line of the Night

Jimmy Butler (Chicago Bulls): 32 PTS (Career High), 6 REB, 1 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 10-17 FG

The Bulls worked all offseason to try and sign Butler to a modest extension. He didn't sign it, and gambled on himself having a huge year and possibly cashing out after the season. Through the first 10 games, his gamble has paid off entirely. Butler set a career high in scoring, and has scored 20 or more points in five of Chicago's 10 games this season. Coming into the season, he had only scored 20+ points in nine career games. With Derrick Rose's health fluctuating, Butler has indisputably been the Bulls' best player.

Kyle Lowry is one of the most skilled passers in the game. Look at where he's standing during this alley oop! He's on the half-court logo! Ridiculous.
