The Bulls and the Pistons played a Kevin Costner movie of a basketball game last night in Chicago. Detroit finally beat the Bulls in 4OT, 147-144, and Jimmy Butler even had a clear shot to take it to five, but he clanked it. Reggie Jackson had 13 in the final overtime, but he also sent Doug McDermott spinning with this here hesitation move:
Jimmy Butler later avenged him with this jam:
All told, it was the most bonkers game of the NBA season. Andre Drummond cleared 30-20, Butler, Pau Gasol, and Derrick Rose all had at least 30, and six players logged over 50 minutes. Losing a game like that is about as draining as losses come, and Butler certainly acted the part afterwards.
