In the third quarter with the Bulls clinging to a 62-61 lead, Luol Deng threw up a pass to Jimmy Butler at the rim that he grabbed in the air and stuffed over Heat big man Chris Bosh. It was a posterization that lifted almost all of the 23,014 fans in the United Center off their collective feet.

"Great play," Robinson said. "Awesome. I told Jimmy to ask Chris Bosh to sign the poster, but he probably won't do it."

In the years to come, Bosh probably won't be signing any of those posters ... but Butler certainly will.

Starting in just his eighth game of the season, the swingman had 17 points, five assists and four rebounds in 43 minutes.
