Line of the Night

Jimmy Butler (Chicago Bulls): 27 PTS, 9 REB, 4 STL, 8-20 FG

I honestly don't know what to say about Jimmy Butler at this point. Every night, he does something amazing and it makes you wonder how he progressed so quickly. With the Bulls giving up a massive lead to the Indiana Pacers, it was a Butler 3-pointer with 67 seconds remaining that extended Chicago's win streak to seven. Jimmy Buckets has dropped 20 points in 20 of a possible 31 games for the Bulls, solidifying himself as an early-season candidate for MVP.
