Well, it appears Rose has the sniffles. Never to worry, Jimmy Butler is becoming a beast in his own right. While it was in the absence of Carmelo Anthony, Jimmy Butler unleashed some impressive numbers including a career high 35 pt. game. He also posted 5 reb, 7 ast, and 9/10 free throws, in route to a 103 - 97 victory against the Knicks.
Now the Bulls are on the road for a back to back game against one of the most red hot teams in the West, the Memphis Grizzlies (21 - 4). It's time to tame these wild bears.
A Bull and a bear wrestling? Don't get stabbed by the horns. It's about to get all grizzly up in here!
Gasol vs. Gasol? - I'm betting Gasol wins!
Random Jimmy Butler Quote:
"I’ve never been the best player on my team, I never probably will be, but I’ve always been a hard worker, a guy that doesn’t give up on himself, who has the utmost confidence in himself. It’s just, now I play for the Chicago Bulls."
