Chicago's Butler stuns Boston in National Basketball Association

The Chicago Bulls' season has been defined by turmoil, but they'll enter the All-Star break riding a two-game winning streak following a thrilling victory Thursday night over the Boston Celtics at the United Center.

"He got a piece of the elbow", Butler said.

Letter of the law, that is a foul.

The Celtics' game is the league's final contest before Sunday's NBA All-Star Game.

Texas police officer saves restaurant from burning auto
Upon arrival, the officer discovered a Ford truck "engulfed in flames", according to a police video of the incident . Around 9:15 pm, and officer with the Glen Heights, SC pulled into the fast food restaurant at 1703 S.

"When Jimmy shot the ball I heard him scream, 'No Foul?' As soon as he said that the whistle blew and I looked and I saw (the ref) raise his hand for the foul".

Butler guarded Mr. Fourth Quarter himself, Isaiah Thomas, down the stretch, and reminded all of us watching why he's starting in the All Star game on Sunday, sinking back to back 3-point bombs.

"That's terrible when it costs you a game you should have won". We had it won. A great defensive stop by Marcus Smart, and the refee called a awful call.

Butler, unsurprisingly, agreed with the official's assessment.

"Smart, via MassLive, initially offered a "no comment" when asked if he touched Butler on the play, but later said he "played helluva great defense right there, and I know I did", asserting that the referee only called the foul after Butler yelled, 'No foul?'" If I hit you in your elbow when you're shooting a jump shot and you miss it, you're going to be hot. I think I make if he doesn't alter it like that. "People are going to say 'Aw, he didn't foul him, ' but he did". But the lateness of the whistle and the fact that that call generally doesn't get made that late in a close game caused controversy.

Some would say being named as an All-Star starter is a mark of true superstardom in the National Basketball Association, while others would say the whistles going in a player's direction is how superstar respect is truly applied.

He said: "I'd probably have to go with my favorite player who's not myself and that's Kyrie". I moved my feet. "I feel good about our team and I feel good about the direction we're headed". Forward Nikola Mirotic, who has missed the Bulls' last two games with a back issue, will likely be back in the lineup for Thursday's game, according to Hoiberg.
