23-year old small forward Jimmy Butler has really stepped up lately with Luol Deng a little dinged up. He has played in 44 games (5 starts) for the Bulls overall this year and he is averaging 20.7 minutes, 6.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. He is shooting 49.8% from the floor and 85.9% from the free throw line (which is impressive), but he also is only shooting 24.1% from three point range. In his five starts so far this year, Butler is averaging 45.2 minutes, 14.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. The Bulls hope that Butler keeps up the good work.
