Jimmy Butler stood out from the pack in the Bulls’ Game 1 victory over the top-seeded Boston Celtics on Sunday, powering a conciliatory effort to pacify the Celtics’ late-game comeback attempt.

Butler scored 30 points on 9-of-19 shooting, racking up nine rebounds, three assists, a block, and a steal along the way to lead Chicago to a 106-102 win on Easter. He scored 23 of those points in the second half, including a 15-point fourth quarter that stiff-armed a Celtics team searching for late-game heroics.

Even while Isaiah Thomas gave Boston 33 points on 10-of-18 shooting, Butler gleamed as the better player on the floor.

Womens Brad Nortman Jersey Andrew Luck had offseason surgery on his throwing shoulder that has been lingering for some time now. On Monday, Luck admitted that the injury initially happened in Week 3 of the 2015 season against the Titans, according to Stephen Holder.

Prior to his confirmation, it was never certain exactly when the injury occurred. In that game, Luck led the Colts to a 35-33 victory, that included his two touchdown passes 56 seconds apart in the fourth quarter.

Holder added that Luck wasn’t happy with the lack of progress in his treatment plan that the Colts had him going through last season. It led to the decision for Luck to finally have it surgically repaired.

It was a big change of pace from what Colts owner Jim Irsay said during the Colts’ Week 4 trip to London, when he told the Indianapolis Star, “There isn’t some kind of chronic shoulder injury or anything like that, I promise you.” Irsay added, ““There are no surgeries planned. He is fine and the shoulder is something that just disappears into the woodwork when he wins his next MVP or when he wins a Super Bowl.”
