That was the most points by a Bull since Jordan dropped 53 against the Pistons in 1996. At the end of the third quarter, it was Butler 36, Other Bulls 41 (Mini-Ditkas 17). And the funny thing is, Butler was doubtful to play tonight.
I have a feeling he won't be doubtful much the rest of the season.
