Jimmy Butler is a no-doubt NBA superstar, and the 27-year-old is playing the best basketball of his career. 

The Chicago Bulls have struggled over the last few years, but that hasn’t taken away any shine from their two-way star. Now, Butler has teamed up with future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade, and Flash has noticed the talent of Chicago’s franchise player.

“He’s playing as good as anybody in the league right now,” said Wade to ESPN’s Nick Friedell following their 123-118 overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.

“What he’s doing in the fourth quarter is even more impressive than the stat line at the end of the day. That stat line is amazing, but everybody knows we’re going to Jimmy. And to still be able to make those plays, make those things, it’s incredible,” continued Wade. “And then to still guard one or two of the other best players on the other end of the floor in the fourth, that’s impressive, man. He’s playing out of this world right now. His confidence is out the roof, and that goes a long way.”

Butler’s averaging a career-high 25.6 points a night for Chicago while shooting 45.4 percent from the field and 34.6 from three, but, as Wade alluded to, his performances in the fourth quarter have won the Bulls multiple games. And he’s had three game-clinching shots over the last ten days.

Over the last four contests, Butler has been the most clutch player in basketball, and the Bulls are better because of it. Being their best player, it’s no secret Chicago is going to him when it matters most, and his scorching starts only add to his lethality down the stretch.

During that span, according to NBA.com, the six-year vet is averaging 8.8 points in clutch situations, and he’s shooting a staggering 55.6 percent from the floor. Causing the Bulls to have pulled out three wins in those four games.

The game against the Brooklyn Nets kicked off this tear, and Butler put up 40 and synched the buzzer-beater. He then tallied 52 against the Charlotte Hornets three days later, and his most recent game against the Raptors ended with 42. Overall, Jimmy Buckets is averaging more than 34 points a night on a respectable 46.6 clip.

Chicago has a few winnable games coming up, and it’s all but guaranteed the Bulls are going to feed Butler as much as possible.
