Bulls vs. Knicks final score: Jimmy Butler's career-high 35 points leads Chicago past New York, 103-97

Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony didn't play, so Butler decided to put on his own show. When I volunteered to write about this game, I was pretty excited. I figured Derrick Rose would lead the Bulls to a fun romp and I could make some Carmelo Anthony jokes and that would be that. Instead, Rose and Anthony (and Taj Gibson) didn't play, and Chicago played down to yet another awful opponent at the United Center. Luckily, this generally lethargic effort still resulted in a 103-97 victory thanks in large part to a career-high 35 points from Jimmy Butler. At first, it looked like this was going...

Butler's stock keeps rising with career game

CHICAGO -- After watching Jimmy Butler rack up a career-high 35 points to go along with seven assists and five rebounds in a 103-97 win over the New York Knicks, Tom Thibodeau summed up the city of Chicago's feelings toward the 25-year-old Chicago Bulls ironman. "Just thank God for Jimmy Butler," Thibodeau said. On a night when the Bulls didn't have Derrick Rose [illness] or Taj Gibson [right ankle], Butler took another step in his development in a season that has already been chock full of them.

Jimmy Butler named Eastern Conference Player of the Month

Show him the money! A bit lost in the hoopla of back-to-back games was the fact that the Bulls' own Jimmy Butler was named Eastern Conference Player of the Month. As talked about ad nauseam on the site, Butler was absolutely superb in the opening month of the season. After missing the first two games of the year due to a thumb injury, the swingman immediately made his presence felt in his season debut, scoring 24 points and knocking down two game-winning free throws to beat Minnesota. From that point on, Butler has been really good in just about every game save the Blazers debacle. He...

Butler named East's player of the month

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The rise of Jimmy Butler continues. Butler was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Month on Wednesday for October/November. Butler, who scored 15 points and dished out seven assists in the Bulls' 102-95 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, is in the midst of a career year and will become a restricted free agent at season's end after not being able to come to an extension with the Bulls at the Oct. 31 deadline.
