CHICAGO – Jimmy Butler scored 28 points against his former team, Goran Dragic added 20 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, and the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 101-90 for their ninth win in 10 games.
Butler, who played his first six seasons in Chicago, added eight assists.
Dragic finished one point shy of his season high thanks to a huge surge down the stretch, helping Miami come out on top on a night when both teams looked as if they were finishing back-to-backs.
The Heat improved to 20-18 after moving above .500 for the first time this season by beating Orlando on Thursday.
Zach LaVine led Chicago with 30 points. Lauri Markkanen scored 20.
