Jimmy Butler wasn’t tasked with a massive workload in Monday’s huge win, scoring just 17 points with five boards, three assists and three steals in 31 minutes.
Butler shot 5-of-11 and was a perfect 7-for-7 from the charity stripe. While fantasy owners were probably disappointed with this considering Rajon Rondo was out, the Bulls have to be happy with Butler playing six minutes less than his season average. Mr. Buckets has been a top-10 play over the last month and is a borderline first round value on the full season. The offseason concerns about Chicago rolling with “Three Alphas” were most certainly assuaged by Butler’s phenomenal year.
