Jimmy Butler: ‘If it gets gloomy in here, everything will go downhill’

If the slumping Bulls are down in the dumps, they’re doing a great job of hiding it.

Yes, they’ve lost six of seven games since the debacle against Tom Thibodeau’s Timberwolves, but they’re still acting and speaking in harmony.

“I want to win, as everyone does in here,” Jimmy Butler said. “But we have to stay high-spirited, man. If it gets gloomy in here, everything will go downhill very quickly. We have to keep our heads up and know brighter days are ahead.

“We’re fine. We’re in this together. We preach that to one another every single day. We’re all we have, these coaches and players. We know what we’re capable of and we have to get back on track.”

They showed enough fight Sunday against the Spurs to rally from an early slaughter. They missed their first six shots. LaMarcus Aldridge made his first 11, mostly on jumpers in front of the 3-point line.
