Jimmy Butler scored 26 points and Carlos Boozer racked up 21 points and 10 rebounds as the Chicago Bulls blasted the Memphis Grizzlies 95-91 on Monday at FedEx Forum.

After being sidelined for 11 games earlier this season, Butler is regaining the same confidence he had last year, coming up with another impressive statistical line.

"I'm getting real comfortable," Butler said during the post-game press conference via ESPN. "I sat down with a few of the vets, and they just talked to me and told me to play my game and have fun. When you have fun, everything else takes care of itself."

Mike Conley had an all-around performance with 26 points, 9 assists, 6 rebounds and 6 steals while James Johnson contributed 13 points and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes of action off the bench.

The Bulls improved to 12-17 while the Grizzlies continued to struggle this season at 13-17.
