Butler’s Second-Half Points Break MJ’s Record


Following Chicago’s comeback win Sunday, Taj Gibson described Jimmy Butler with one word: possessed.

Butler shrugged off a first-half injury and came back to score 40 of his 42 points in the second half of Chicago’s 115-113 win at Toronto, breaking Michael Jordan’s 28-year-old record.
