VIDEO: Jimmy Butler hits buzzer beater to beat the Nets
It’s been a struggle for the Chicago Bulls this season as they hover around .500. But one of the bright spots has been Jimmy Butler.
The 27-year-old has put together a nice season as the go-to guy in Chicago for the first time. On Wednesday, he bailed out the Bulls who were tied with the Brooklyn Nets late.

Following the game, head coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters that he called the play and told the team to get the hell out of his (Jimmy’s) way.
Butler’s step back jumper gave the Bulls a 101-99 win, which put them back to .500 with a 16-16 record.
