Jimmy Butler Funny, and Backs it Up

“Say what you will, but I told my teammates I probably wasn’t going to pass the ball. I made a couple of shots and they said, ‘That’s fine with me,’” Jimmy Butler said after the game, per Ben Golliver of the Washington Post.

True to his word, Jimmy Buckets took over from start to finish, uncorking a career-playoff high 40 points on a marvelous 13-for-20 shooting from the field and pristine 2-for-2 from downtown. The 6-foot-7 swingman also collected four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes to stun the heavily-favored Bucks.
