Pau Gasol had 20 points and Derrick Rose added 17 for the Bulls (22-9), who have won seven straight.
Chris Copeland scored 13 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter, and George Hill and C.J. Miles each added 11 points for the Pacers (11-21), who trailed by as much as 21 points in the second half.
Butler scored a 3-pointer with 1:07 remaining to put the Bulls ahead for good 92-90.
That was after the Pacers went on a 23-2 run and regained the lead on Lavoy Allen’s basket to make it 84-83 with 6:15 left in the fourth quarter.
Chicago tied the four-game season series with the Pacers at 1-1 and won for the first time at Indiana after losing the previous four games.
