Jimmy Butler Posts Career-High 35 Points

No Derrick Rose. No problem. Chicago Bulls swingman and rising star Jimmy Butler continues to have a great season, posting a career-high 35 points in a win against the visiting New York Knicks. Per the Chicago Tribune:

“You can’t say enough about him,” Thibodeau said. “What he does, he hits big shots, plays defense, gets to the line, makes plays, plays unselfishly, plays hard, doesn’t take any possessions off. He’s just having a phenomenal year.”

“My confidence, it’s up there,” he said. “Like I always say, Chris Johnson, who was my trainer over the summer in Houston, he put that in me to know that, be confident in everything you do. Ball-handling, shooting, post, in transition. That guy did a lot for me.”
