Butler scored 20 points (8-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding 14 assists, six rebounds and three steals in 39 minutes during Sunday's 109-94 win over the Bucks. It's his fourth straight double-double, with the last three featuring assists rather than rebounds as Butler continues to form a strong offensive connection with Nikola Mirotic. While Butler's distribution has been the most impressive feature of his recent production, he's also making an impact on the defensive end, racking up 15 steals over the last six games.
Butler finished with 36 points (10-24 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 16-21 FT), 11 assists, seven rebounds and three steals across 42 minutes in Friday's 117-107 loss against the Bulls. Occasionally Butler has a stinker, but he usually rebounds rather nicely. Since his five-point outing March 12 he is averaging 25.3 points per game, slightly above his season mark. He also has double-doubles in three straight outings, his longest streak of the season.
Butler scored 37 points (11-21 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 12-14 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and a steal in 44 minutes during Tuesday's 122-120 overtime loss to the Raptors. He's now scored 20 or more points in four of five games since Rajon Rondo moved back into the Bulls' starting five, and Butler is averaging an impressive 25.0 points, 6.4 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.6 blocks and 1.4 three-pointers over that stretch. With Dwayne Wade (elbow) out for the rest of the regular season, expect Butler to continue carrying the scoring load for Chicago.
Butler tallied 28 points (10-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, five assists and three steals across 38 minutes in Friday's 112-107 loss to the Wizards. Butler recorded his highest point total in March Friday night, shooting well over 50 percent from the floor, which is an abnormality for him. He is Chicago's only true scoring option and continues to deliver fantasy value based purely on volume regardless of the team's overall play.
Butler posted 14 points (4-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist across 40 minutes in Wednesday's 98-91 loss to the Grizzlies. Butler shot an anemic 25 percent from the floor Wednesday and missed all three of his attempts from beyond the arc. butler can occasionally have a bad night here and there, but a lot of it is due to the Bulls' poor play overall. Butler is still Chicago's top scoring option and that alone makes him a chalk play in all formats.
