Four straight games were Jimmy Butler shot less than 40%. Of the last eight games, Jimmy Butler has shot above 50% only once. In this stretch of games, he also had the worst field goal percentage of the entire season when he was limited to 16.7% and only scored 10 points in a 102-86 loss to the Washington Wizards. But last night the Bulls were beaten 121-114 by the Orlando Magic.
It’s probably a sign that Butler needs some rest, his shooting declining coupled with his athletic play and he has probably just hit a wall. Actually it looks like the whole team has in losing 3 of the last 4 including two blowouts to the Utah Jazz and Wizards.
But if your coach is Tom Thibodeau, good luck with that.
