Jimmy Butler scored 31 points (14 in the 4th quarter), helping the Bulls to shake off a slow start and grab a 91-82 win over the Bucks on Monday, taking a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.

The Bulls and Bucks exchanged some words in Game 2 after Bucks forward John Henson knocked down Bulls guard Aaron Brooks.
