Earlier in the season, Jimmy Butler sealed a Chicago Bulls win over the Indiana Pacers with a block of Paul George at the buzzer. Butler was at it again on Wednesday night, leading the Bulls back from a late seven-point fourth-quarter deficit and finishing the job in overtime.
Butler scored Chicago’s last seven points in regulation to help send the game to overtime. Then after Monta Ellis hit a miracle three to tie the game in the final seconds, the Bulls went to their pet play (although Butler claimed it was a broken play):
Chicago runs the Gasol-to-Butler alley-oop at least once a game, with a very high rate of success.
Butler then shut the door on the other end when the Pacers tried to run an alley-oop to George, although Pacers head coach Frank Vogel was livid there wasn’t a foul (there was a similar outcry when Butler blocked George in that first game).
