Jimmy Butler says he had no idea that he was on the verge of scoring 50 points on Monday night.
“I was just playing basketball,” Butler said after he scored a season-high 52 points in the Chicago Bulls’ 118-111 win over the Charlotte Hornets. “I didn’t even know how many points I had until the tech. Michael Carter-Williams was like, ‘Yo, get 50.'”
