If you were watching the Sunday afternoon game between the Toronto Raptors and the Chicago Bulls, you were treated to an unbelievable second half. If you happened to miss it, you’ll want to see the unreal scoring binge by Bulls’ wing Jimmy Butler. After scoring just two points and getting a busted lip on a defensive play in the first half, Butler was a bit possessed in the second half.

He put down 21 points in the third quarter alone on his way to 40 points in the second half to lead the Bulls to the victory. Here is the scoring display just from the third:

But the game was still very much in doubt and the Bulls had to erase a second half double-digit deficit to get a tough road victory. When it came down to who they were going to go to for the big bucket with just 35 seconds left and down two points, the obvious choice of feeding the hot hand was pretty easy to make. Butler faced up against DeMarre Carroll in the right corner, waited for Carroll’s hand to be in the cookie jar, and then knocked down the big 3-pointer.

There was simply nothing the Raptors could do to stop him.

Perhaps they should have blitzed him with a double team every time he had the ball, but the Raptors made him beat mostly single coverage and he absolutely did it.

To summarize, Butler had 21 points in the third quarter, 19 points in the fourth and 40 in the second half. His 42 points were just one point shy from tying his career-high. When he talked after the game, he made sure to praise his teammates for giving him space to work. He also made sure not to compare him to Michael Jordan, whose previous franchise record of 39 points in a half is now second place to his Sunday feat.

Not a bad 24 minutes of basketball.

The Bill Cosby Case Begins

Please read this in its full entirety.  The facts or stated but yet they don’t make sense. She didn’t say that he false her to take the so called pill and wine,  but bugged her to do so after two incidents that she turned him down..  Now read and make your judgement on her as you did on Mr.  Cosby

NORRISTOWN, Penn. — Bill Cosby has been charged with aggravated indecent assault, a felony, in connection with a decade-old sex assault case in Pennsylvania, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.

Cosby, whose legacy as a comedian has been besmirched by multiple accusations of sexual assault, faces one felony charge of aggravated indecent assault. That charge carries a maximum penalty of 5 to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine, prosecutors said.

This is the first criminal charge levied against Cosby since the allegations first arose. Cosby has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing.

The district attorney did not name the victim, but the facts he announced parallel the allegations made by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who accused Cosby of drugging and fondling her in January 2004.

Constand settled a civil case against Cosby in 2006. Pennsylvania law has a 12-year statute of limitations for sexual assault cases, a window that closes early next year.

After looking at all the evidence in the 2004 allegations, prosecutors decided to charge Bill Cosby “because it was the right thing to do,” Montgomery County prosecutor Kevin Steele said Wednesday.

Asked whether investigators believe Cosby used Quaaludes in the 2004 case for which he is being charged, Steele said Wednesday: “What we know is that pills were provided. There’s inconsistencies on (what pills they were). There was also wine provided.”

He said the woman has said she was “frozen, paralyzed, unable to move,” so she was therefore unable to consent to sexual activity.

Cosby has been dogged by allegations of sexual assault. More than 40 women have come forward to publicly accuse Cosby, 78, of assaulting them over four decades, most saying he drugged them first.

Cosby filed a countersuit this month against seven women who had accused him of sexual assault and sued him for defamation. Cosby said the women’s accusations hurt his reputation so much that plans for a new family comedy on NBC were derailed.

On December 15, Cosby sued Beverly Johnson, a pioneering African-American supermodel who accused Cosby in 2014 of sexual misconduct that she says happened years ago; Johnson says the comedian drugged and tried to rape her at her New York home in the mid-1980s.

Cosby’s lawsuit says Johnson joined other women making accusations against him to revive her waning career and to help sell copies of her memoir.

The lawsuit alleges defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, saying Cosby and Johnson never spent any time alone in his house, he never drugged her and “her story is a lie.”

“I am aware of the statements from Bill Cosby,” Johnson said in a statement. “In cases of rape and abuse, abusers will do whatever they can to intimidate and weaken their victims to force them to stop fighting. I ask for your support of all of the victims involved.”
