Monday night’s Game 2 wasn’t a pretty offensive game, but Jimmy Butler looked good when Chicago needed him to.

This two-handed slam — more around the late-arriving Zaza Pachulia than over him — was part of a 14-point fourth quarter that helped the Bulls pull away from the Bucks and take a 2-0 series lead.

It was the kind of grind-it-out win the Bulls have been known for in previous seasons, but we haven’t seen much of in this one. In those kinds of games, someone needs to provide enough offense late, and Butler is now a guy who can bring that for Chicago.
