This Go-Ahead, Crunch-Time Three Capped A 40-Point Second Half By Jimmy Butler

Michael Jordan won six championships and five MVPs in 13 seasons while wearing white, red, and black. Not even the greatest player ever, though, quite managed what Jimmy Butler just did for the Chicago Bulls.

The superstar wing scored a franchise record 40 second-half points to bring his team back from a double-digit deficit and steal a 115-113 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday afternoon. The clutch triple above didn’t just give Butler his final, record-breaking points of the contest, but more importantly gave the Bulls their first lead since the late first quarter – and came with just over 30 seconds remaining in regulation.

Epic.
