Video: Jimmy Butler posterizes Chris Bosh

Nasty.

Every time Jimmy Butler has gotten a chance in the starting lineup this year, he has capitalized with excellent play. That was no different on Wednesday night against the Heat, as Butler came up with big play after big play as the Bulls ended Miami's winning streak at 27 with a 101-97 victory.

Butler went toe-to-toe with Dwyane Wade all night long, arguably outplaying him with a stellar line of 17 points, 5 assists, four rebounds and two steals. Jimmy defended hard against Wade and also LeBron James at times, and although his night wasn't perfect, it's hard to ask for more out of the second-year man.

But Butler's best play of the night, and perhaps the highlight of the year, was when he put his nuts all over Chris Bosh's head in the third quarter as the Heat were making their customary run. The Bulls' offense was in a lull, but Butler's slam got the United Center crowd back into it and they road the wave to a huge victory.
