Butler has made at least 10 free-throws in 20 games this season, the third most in the NBA (James Harden - 28, Russell Westbrook - 23).

The Bulls hit all 22 of their free throws, including 9 for 9 from Butler, who led six Bulls in double figures with 29 points and seven assists.
Olynyk continued his strong play, finishing with 17 points and 7 rebounds while Rozier added 11 points.

Thomas also fouled Jerian Grant down the other end, and the Bulls guard hit twice, cutting the Celtics' lead to a point.
But the Bulls got a second chance after their own defensive stand, and Smart grazed Butler's elbow while defending his final-second shot attempt that drew a whistle.
Chicago was down one when Butler took Smart off the dribble, spun and pulled up from around the free throw line.
"Marcus has had a really good run here", Stevens said Thursday. "That's horrible.the Bulls were even shocked".

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley, sidelined for all but one game since January 6 because of an Achilles strain, said Wednesday he planned to resume basketball activities over the All-Star break with a goal of returning to game action when Boston opens the second half of the season in Toronto next Friday. "Bad call cost us a game, cost us a game". "We shouldn't have traded him", Carlisle told reporters before the Celtics win over the Mavericks Monday. A great defensive stop by Marcus Smart and the referee called a awful call.
Rookie Yogi Ferrell had 20 points for the Mavericks, who came in with three wins over division leaders in the past two weeks after spending the first three months at or near the bottom of the West. I'm sorry I don't think I'm going to miss and look forward to an offensive rebound. He played all 12 fourth-quarter minutes against the Mavericks during the 111-98 win and got crunch time minutes yet again at the Garden on Wednesday night. "Hopefully we'll stay healthy down the stretch and have a good run". I played great defense there, I know I did.
Dwyane Wade had found a groove before a wrist injury took him out of the lineup.
With the chip firmly on their shoulder, look for another hard fought game from the Sixers in Boston tonight. Bulls F Nikola Mirotic was available off the bench after missing two games with back spasms.
