Chicago's Butler stuns Boston in National Basketball Association

Chicago's Butler stuns Boston in National Basketball Association

Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart keep coming up huge when it matters most.

Conversely, Jimmy Butler shot 2-7 from the field while playing all of the first twelve minutes, scoring only five points. Robert Covington added 18 points but left late in the fourth quarter after crashing into the Boston bench while diving for a loose ball. As a result, both teams headed to the locker room with the score favoring the Celtics 58-52.

With the Bulls trailing 103-102 with 8.4 seconds left, Butler took a sideline inbounds pass and methodically waited and waited on the right wing.

Since 2015-16, the home team has won every meeting between these two teams, with each game being decided by single digits (Boston leads 3-2). The Bulls, on the other hand, have been one of the very worst under the same circumstances.

However, the baseline referee called a foul on Smart, believing he hit Butler on the arm. After grabbing a rebound after a missed Thomas three, Fred Hoiberg called a time out to draw up one final play in regulation.

Make that 17 in a row when the Chicago Bulls play at the United Center on Thursday nights on TNT. "I wish I could be back now, but I just have to do whatever is smartest at the moment", Bradley said.

Butler led the Bulls, winners of two straight games to improve their mark to 28-29, with 29 points.

The Bulls forward hit twice for the 104-103 lead.

The Boston Celtics didn't play their best game on Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls, making the kind of mistakes you expect just before the all-star break.

Butler led the Bulls with 29 points while Bobby Portis added a season-high 19. The Bulls had 15 in the game, showing the need for a big man as the trade deadline approaches.

San Antonio's frontcourt took advantage of a Magic team that was down a key player after newly acquired swingman Terrence Ross was unable to suit up because Serge Ibaka didn't complete his physical in Toronto time. In nine games this month, Smart is averaging 12.8 points on 46.6 percent shooting overall to go along with 4.2 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 3 steals over 33.4 minutes per game. They will resume official basketball activities during the middle of next week and host the Wizards on February 24, the day after the trade deadline.

The Chicago Bulls just can't lose on a Thursday night with the entire National Basketball Association world watching and this one put that theory to the test in a big way.

With the Bulls down one with the ball, the team went to leading scoring Jimmy Butler. Be sure to catch the dunk contest too to see what wacky thing Aaron Gordon vaults over this year!
