You would never want to look out of your window on a flight and see the airplane wing bend like this but it’s nice to know that Airbus stress tests the hell out of their flying tubes to make sure that even if the wing is at such an obscene angle, it won’t snap in half.

At halftime of Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, Jimmy Butler had exactly two points. The Bulls found themselves down by 12, and that’s when Butler decided to go en fuego. Butler destroyed the Raps in the second half, dropping a Bulls record previously held byMichael Jordan for points in a half by pouring in 40 of them on 14-19 shooting. Jordan dropped 39 in a half in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks in 1989.
