Jimmy Butler did not take kindly to double team question

Jimmy Butler is no fan of double teams — both on the court and in questions from the media.

Butler’s Chicago Bulls lost at home to the Lakers on Wednesday 96-90. The Bulls forward struggled through his worst shooting night of the season, as he was 4 of 18 (.222 percent) while battling double teams.

He didn’t react favorably when asked after the game about the double teams he faced from the Lakers’ defense:

His obvious unhappiness is understandable after a performance like that. The Bulls as a team shot 35.2 percent from the field and made just 19 percent on threes. They’re now 10-7 while the Lakers improved to .500 on the year.
