Jason Lieser

Overlooked (as usual) will be Luol Deng going 39 minutes and erasing Jimmy Butler. Deng also had 15p, 10r, 4a.

Jason Lieser

Jimmy Butler averages 20.5ppg. He's got 5p on 2/8 FGs while working mostly against Deng.

Steve Aschburner

Luol Deng, 2x All Star, 15p-7r-3a in 31m, 1st g back in Chicago. Jimmy Butler, who replaced Deng, gets All-Star talk, 5p-4r-1a in 32m.

Joseph Goodman

Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler 2 of 11 from the field combined. Derrick Rose 5 of 13. Heat 60, Bulls 48 5:38 3Q with Whiteside coming in.

Rich Levine

Bulls/Heat: Taj Gibson, Chalmers, Hassan Whiteside - 2nd round picks. Jimmy Butler - late 1st round pick. Celtics need to find these guys.

Gary Lee

Lakers are rumored to offer a max contract to Jimmy Butler, but the Bulls are going to match ‘any max offer.’ lakersnation.com/nba-rumors-chi…

Earl K. Sneed

Jimmy Butler will head to the FT line after the stoppage and Dirk will return. @Dallas Mavericks trail 92-85 with 5:12 left. #DALvsCHI

Mark Followill

Jimmy Butler had 11 pts in 3Q, 17 for game. Parsons leads Dallas with 17 & Dirk has 16. Bulls over Mavs 80-75 after 3 on @FSSouthwest

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler has 11 points in the 3rd quarter. He looks like Nov./Dec. Jimmy right now.

Earl K. Sneed

Jimmy Butler with the baseline jumper, and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 66-62 with 6:04 left in the 3rd. #DALvsCHI

Tom Haberstroh

Not counting practice/shootarounds, Jimmy Butler has run NBA-high 115 miles on the court since Oct. 29.

Ryan Wolstat

So tough to pick East reserves. Jimmy Butler’s my only no-brainer pick. I put Korver and Millsap on too, though Al’s their best player.

Emiliano Carchia

Bulls will match any offer sheet Jimmy Butler signs sportando.com/en/usa/nba/149…

Ethan J. Skolnick

Jimmy Butler leads league in minutes at 39.8, has slowed down recently, & finally came out of game w/ a 22-point lead. Thibs gonna Thibs.

Nick Friedell

Can't remember many games, if any, when Jimmy Butler has been in foul trouble. He just picked up his 3rd foul in 9 minutes.

Mike Monroe

Jimmy Butler picks up 3rd PF and comes out with 6:31 left in 1st half vs. #Spurs

Ira Winderman

Figure on Wade, Jimmy Butler as a pair of locks among the seven East reserves, with at least two Hawks in that mix, perhaps more.

Alex Kennedy

Jimmy Butler (455,756) received more All-Star votes than Derrick Rose (379,994). Who would've predicted that entering the season?

KC Johnson

Jimmy Butler finished 5th and Derrick Rose 6th in East backcourt voting. Butler 455,756 votes to Rose's 379,994. Surprising.

Bernie Lee

I wonder if Jimmy Butler is somewhere thinking "if only Chief Keef had a bigger social media presence"..

Al Iannazzone

Lots of tweets that John Paxson said Bulls would match all offers for Jimmy Butler. Did anyone really think the Knicks would get him?

Steve Popper

So John Paxson said that Bulls will match any offer for Jimmy Butler - even a max. It would have been nice, but Knicks have Langsanity. No?

Nick Friedell

John Paxson tells @WaddleandSilvy that Bulls will match any offer sheet Jimmy Butler signs -- even if it's a max offer.

Matt Steinmetz

I'm hearing Jimmy Butler's name. Legit, but Klay's 3-point shot gives him edge there, too.

Chris Sheridan

Tweet of the Night: Mo Williams shares his list of All-Stars, starts Kobe over Harden and excludes Jimmy Butler: sheridanhoops.com/2015/01/21/twe…

Gary Lee

RUMOR: Lakers to offer max contracts to Jimmy Butler and Greg Monroe? lakersnation.com/lakers-rumors-… http://t.co/Z8yQgce6sE

Steve Aschburner

LeBron hits turnaround jumper from L baseline vs. Tony Snell, Thibodeau gets Jimmy Butler up to scorers' table.

Jarrod Gillis

All of the sudden defense is non-existent in Chicago. What's going on with the #Bulls? Jimmy Butler hasn't been the same since coming back.

Steve Aschburner

LeBron James didn't seem to mind getting called for offensive foul in forearming Jimmy Butler to floor.

Nick Friedell

The Bulls are playing terribly tonight, but that doesn't mean Jimmy Butler should pull up for a jumper over LeBron. Bad all the way around.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Timofey Mozgov completely outplayed Pau Gasol in the first half. LeBron owned Jimmy Butler. Kyrie outplayed Rose. Cavs lead 54-39.

Steve Aschburner

Had sense, from LBJ's media sessions Sun/Mon, he was aware of all Jimmy Butler explosion talk (All-Star, MVP!?) talk and, y'know focused.

Steve Aschburner

Jimmy Butler argues to ref that it was Mozgov who fouled LeBron.

Nick Friedell

Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler are a combined 2-for-16. The Bulls won't win any games with that trio shooting so poorly.

Chris Fedor

#Bulls Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol combined: 2-for-16. Autocorrect didn't recognize *Pau* the first time...

Joe Cowley

If Jimmy Butler wants to continue carrying that star-on-the-rise label, he needs to game up.

Steve Aschburner

Jimmy Butler had Dellavedova on him that entire possession and didn't touch the ball.

Mike Prada

Bulls have a lot of trouble generating enough spacing without Dunleavy and December Jimmy Butler.

Jonathan Feigen

If not for Jimmy Butler, we'd be talking about Motiejunas vs. Green as matchup of two of top Most Improved candidates.

Sean Highkin

Jimmy Butler addressing the crowd about MLK pregame.

Enzo Flojo

2 of the best SGs today -- Kyle Korver & Jimmy Butler. #nbaballot #nba2015 #repost from chicagobulls instagram.com/p/x9_wnDkAFC/

Jimmy Butler on Joakim Noah's leadership for Chicago Bulls: youtu.be/IXrWFX61yck?a via @YouTube

Jessica Camerato

Jimmy Butler is so insanely humble in comparison to his success.

Jared Weiss

Brad Stevens on Jimmy Butler: "He imposed his physical will on the game....He's just tough." #Celtics #Bulls

Joe Cowley

Jimmy Butler is so much more dangerous when he steals the ball in the open court and no one is near him. Makes the Bulls so much better.

Bill Simmons

My dad is visiting. I just reminded him that the Celtics took JaJuan Johnson over Jimmy Butler. Might have to call the paramedics.

Jessica Camerato

This. MT @Scott Souza #Celtics were high on Jimmy Butler in '11 draft but went w/ JaJuan Johnson 27. #Bulls took Butler 30.

Scott Souza

About time feel it's worth remembering #Celtics were high on Jimmy Butler in '11 draft but went w/ JaJuan Johnson 27. #Bulls took Butler 30.

Amin Elhassan

Marcus Smart too small to guard Jimmy Butler that deep in the post. BBQ Chicken!
