Jimmy Butler played 38 minutes in a win against the Hornets on Monday, finishing with 52 points (15-of-24 from the field, 21-22 from the line), one 3-pointer, 12 boards, six dimes, three steals, one block and two turnovers.
Butler was an absolute beast tonight in every facet of fantasy basketball. Currently, he’s a top-10 value in 9-cat leagues and any preseason notion that his teammates would run the show had been completely squashed. He’s in elite territory with his free throw shooting impact and also in the steals category. Jimmy G. Buckets, the “G” stands for “gets,” woo!
