Bulls’ Jimmy Butler: ‘We’re not giving up’


(Jimmy) Butler said he does not believe his team has quit on the season, despite the way players have performed lately. (Dwyane) Wade was a minus-37 on Sunday, while Butler shot 2-for-11 from the field and scored just five points.

“I don’t think we’re giving up,” Butler said. “We’re just not playing any type of good basketball right now. We got to get back to doing the basics before we try to do anything else. Getting back in transition, guarding the way we’re supposed to be, taking the right shots. I’m sure we’re going to talk about that for a while tomorrow before we play Charlotte, but we’re not giving up. I can tell you that.”
