Bobby Portis hurts Jimmy Butler with hand slap

Jimmy Butler has looked invincible this season.

The newly named All-Star is averaging career-highs in points (22.4), rebounds (5.3) and assists (4.3).

He’s become the leader on a veteran team, even calling out his “laid-back” coach earlier in the season.

It seems nothing can stop Jimmy Buckets … except for maybe a Bobby Portis hand slap.

Butler shook off the hard slap to post game-highs 26 points and 10 assists in the Bulls’ 114-91 victory over the Lakers on Thursday.

And, he recovered in time to greet friend Mark Wahlberg in the L.A. crowd.
