Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler says he asked coach Fred Hoiberg to stay in the game to begin the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s loss to the Boston Celtics. The score was tied at 75, and the Celtics started the period on a 12-2 run without Butler on the floor.

“I told Fred not to take me out at the beginning of the fourth,” Butler said. “I wanted to play because that’s when we give up those leads, at the beginning of the fourth. Nothing against my teammates, but I think if I’m out there and I get their energy going the right way, now take me out and let me rest. But the energy’s going, the energy’s flowing. I think I got to start playing at the beginning of the fourth quarter.”
