Although his name won’t likely be included in All-NBA or defensive player of the year awards, Jimmy Butler has consistently produced this season with the Heat winning only eight times in games he didn’t play in.
With the team’s offensive struggles, so much has fallen on Butler’s shoulders. Injuries haven’t helped but Jimmy Buckets has impressed and this season arguably more than others has demonstrated just how unique he is.

Free Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
Both clubs rely on their defense so expect a lower-scoring match with plenty of play-off level physicality. Ironically, the Bulls have more offensive threats but still struggle to score especially late in games.
Each club has dealt with a lack of depth — or at least much production off their benches although the return of Kyle Lowry has had a positive impact for Miami because they finally have a savvy playmaker who operates with a high IQ and gets his teammates open shots.
That alone should be enough to allow Miami to win and cover.
