Jimmy Butler had a triple-double, leading the visiting Chicago Bulls to a 117-99 victory Saturday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, as LeBron James sat out with strep throat.
Cleveland struggled as it often does when the four-time MVP doesn’t play. The Cavaliers are 4-19 without James since he returned to Cleveland in 2014, including 0-4 this season.
Chicago is the only 3-0 team against the Cavaliers in the league. Butler had 18 points, including 13 in the third quarter, to go with 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
