BULLS 115 SIXERS 111 F/OT...The BUTLER did it as the "WEST SIDE Story Report" rides Jimmy Bucket's 53 Large on Broad Street Philly and down goes the SEVENTY-SIXERS again! #CHIvsPHI #BullsNation #SixersOneDay #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls had no Derrick Rose but now moving forward its Jimmy Butler's Team and no one else's. The Butler went for a season-high 53 points on Thursday Night in Philly on Broad Street as "See Red" had an uphill climb through three frames to get back into the game.

Philly led 62-46 at the break and push that lead to 20 points by the score of 66-46 with just over ten minutes remaining.  Chicago would outscore Phillly from that point on through regulation 58-38 as Butler had company.

Doug McDermott (17 pts) and E.T. Moore (14 pts) were huge from the Bulls Bench Mob as McBuckets had an emphatic slam in the 4th and Moore carried some of the load in Extras as Butler fumbled what could have been the game-winning play or buckets at the end of regulation.

In Extras it was too much Moore and Butler as McBuckets added two free throws as the Bulls go onto win 115-111. Sixers were paced by PG Ish Smith (25 pts 8 asst) and Chicago-Area Native Robert Covington's 24 pts and six rebs.

Philly falls to 4-37 while the Bulls snap a three-game win streak moving to 23-15...
