Jimmy Butler struggled in a tough match-up against Kawhi Leonard on Christmas day. Butler scored 19 points (8-of-19 from the field), grabbed five boards, handed out three assists, hit a trey, and got a steal in 36 minutes.
It’s always a tough situation when you’re facing the defensively gifted Leonard on any given night, so you can chalk this one up to that. Jimmy is coming off back-to-back games scoring 20 points or more before this one, and should easily bounce back soon enough.
