Butler leads Bucks on his bobblehead night

Caron Butler’s playing time has greatly diminished this season, but last night he helped the Milwaukee Bucks end a 9-game losing streak.

On a night where Caron Butler bobbleheads were handed out to the crowd, Butler made up for the lack of playing time by pouring in  30 points in Milwaukee’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over the Detroit Pistons.
