Jordan scored 24 points on 12-of-13 shooting, and the Los Angeles Clippers shot 52 percent to cruise past the Lakers 113-97 on Saturday and improve to 6-0 in 2017.

Dwyane Wade has big 4th quarter, leads Bulls past Pelicans
CHICAGO -- Jimmy Butler's health and the Bulls' play this week coincided for different reasons.

Butler scored 28 points in his return from the flu, and Dwyane Wade had 17 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter in the Chicago Bulls' 107-99 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.

The Bulls desperately needed Butler back after losing their previous three games while he struggled with the flu. He didn't play in two games and was limited Monday night against Oklahoma City (see full recap).
