Jimmy Butler is wiped out. Was fouled on drive, stopped to sit on basket support. But can he sit if Celts can put it away in early 4Q?

The Bulls recognized a few former Bulls in attendance at Game 4. Other than the tandem of Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant, this current New York Knick got the loudest ovation.

Jimmy Butler fouled and walks with a limp to the line to shoot potential go-ahead FTs

Bulls should be happy to only be down 11 at halftime. Aside from the Bulls' troubles at PG, Jimmy Butler has been the story early. He has made it a point to attack the basket and the Celtics haven't had as much of an answer in slowing him down. Problem for Bulls is that somebody has to step up and help him down the stretch.
