Chicago Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler did not have a great first half against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night. He scored only two points, but he ended up with 42 for the game. Do some math and that means he scored 40 in the second half, a number that Michael Jordan couldn’t even reach during his time with the Bulls.
Butler finished the game with those 42 points, a block, a steal, five assists, and four boards. He shot 15-of-23 from the floor and broke Michael Jordan’s mark of 39 points scored in a half against Milwaukee in 1989.
