Last game was "The Jimmy Butler game" This game is the "Kirk Hinrich game" Too bad for the Bulls they are coming in the preseason.

Perils of being a good defender. Jimmy Butler appeared to hurt a finger when deflecting a pass. Looks like he's staying in.

Jimmy Butler went for a steal and appeared to jam his finger. He looks like he's in some pain right now.

MVP of the preseason so far? Jimmy Butler - no-brainer. Playing at a high level, and one of the few starters playing with heart right now.

Preseason or not, Jimmy Butler's improved midrange and post-up game stand out. As does over 8 FTAs per game. my.chicagotribune.com/#section/444/a…
