Jimmy Butler secured a 96-95 win for the Bulls Monday night with this game-saving block on Paul George:

Just seconds earlier, Butler missed a layup that would have given the Bulls a three-point lead.

George led all scorers with 26 points.

Butler had 17 on 6-12 shooting.

But the win was marred by another Derrick Rose injury. Rose left the win over the Pacers after rolling his ankle during the second half.
