After an up and down first quarter, the Bulls seemed to find their footing in the second quarter Monday afternoon against the Pistons.

With the Bulls holding a one-point lead and the final seconds ticking off the clock, Jimmy Butler took over. In fitting fashion, considering the rivalry matchup, Butler did his best Michael Jordan impression, hitting a fade away shot over the Pistons defender.

Pau Gasol leads the Bulls in scoring with 15 points in the first half. Both Butler and Derrick Rose have added nine of their own. With six assists, three rebounds and two steals, Butler will also have the chance to flirt with a triple-double in the second half.

The Bulls are looking for their first win over the Pistons this season and to put an end to their recent struggles. They have lost four of their last five with both Golden State and Cleveland looming in their future.
