The Bucks will be hard-pressed to win more than a game against the Bulls in their first round playoff matchup, because while Milwaukee struggles to score at times and doesn’t have one consistent go-to offensive option, Chicago has a bunch of them.

During a game where Pau Gasol and Derrick Rose combined to shoot a dismal 8-of-26 from the field, Butler took over, scoring 14 of his 31 points in the final period to drag his team to victory.

He was mic’d up for his performance, and can be seen telling his head coach, “They can’t guard me, man.”

On this night, Butler was absolutely right.
