Butler Posts Career High as Bulls WinCHICAGO (AP) - Jimmy Butler
scored a career-high 19 points and Nate Robinson added 15 as the Chicago Bulls
defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 93-85 last night.
Luol Deng returned to the Bulls' lineup
after missing five games with a hamstring injury, and scored 12 points in 31
minutes. The Bulls won three of five without Deng as his absence was eased by
the strong play of Butler, who returned to a reserve role.
Joakim Noah finished with 13 points, 18
rebounds and seven assists to help Central Division-leading Chicago win for the
seventh time in its last nine games.
Kemba Walker and Ben Gordon led the Bobcats
with 18 points apiece. Charlotte has lost nine of its last 11 games.
