Jimmy Butler scores franchise-record 40 second-half points in Bulls’ comeback win over Raptors (VIDEO)
In the first half of the Bulls’ Sunday road game against the Raptors, Jimmy Butler scored two points and went back to the locker room to get a bloody lip stitched up. He came back out for the second half and dropped 40 points. Not only did his outburst lead the Bulls to a comeback win after being down 15, he set a new franchise record for points in a half, surpassing a previous mark held by some guy named Michael Jordan:
