WATCH: Jimmy Butler drives and slams on the Cavaliers

The Bulls got a 97-95 opening night win over the Cavaliers, and Jimmy Butler was a big part of that equation.

Butler finished with 17 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals, and came up with a key deflection of an inbound pass on the game's final possession to seal the victory for his team.

He also had one of the game's nicest highlights, driving into the teeth of the Cavs' defense in the fourth quarter to throw down a powerful two-handed slam.
