The Chicago Bulls are off to a good start in 2015 as they earned a 106-101 win over the Denver Nuggets at the United Center on Thursday. The Bulls were led by Jimmy Butler who had a game-high 26 points on 8 of 14 shooting from the field.
But it was one play from Chicago’s superstar Derrick Rose to the emerging star Butler that was the highlight of the night. Rose and Butler ran the fast break 2-on-1 against Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler when Rose through the lob and Butler finished with authority.
If the two can play like this all season long, the Bulls are surely one of the teams to beat in the NBA.
