Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

In the NBA’s final game before the All-Star break, the Chicago Bulls defeated the Boston Celtics in a controversial thriller.

Boston led, 103-102, with more than a second remaining in the game. Bulls guard Jimmy Butler drew a foul on Celtics guard Marcus Smart, getting Smart to graze his elbow, sending the All-Star to the free throw line. Butler came through on both shots, lifting Chicago to a 104-103 victory over Boston and giving the Bulls two wins over Eastern Conference powerhouses in as many games.

Butler and fellow All-Star Isaiah Thomas each scored 29 points and dished seven assists apiece. Thomas was able to break a Boston record for consecutive games with at least 20 points, surpassing John Havlicek, with his 41st such game.
