Bulls’ Jimmy Butler drains three at buzzer to beat Hawks (VIDEO)


Jimmy Butler, ladies and gentlemen.

Sure, it’s preseason, but this Bulls win was all him, he had 17 fourth quarter points topped off by this game-winning three. And it was a well designed play. Butler starts on the left block, runs out to set a pick for Pau Gasol rolling to the rim, then sprints out to the arc and curls off a Joakim Noah screen. The Hawks’ John Jenkins cannot keep up and Butler gets a pretty clean look.

And buries it.

I can’t wait for these kinds of shots to really count in a couple weeks.
