Jimmy Butler, sporting a wrap on his wrist, finished Sunday's close loss with 13 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a triple on 4-of-11 shooting.
Butler missed the final shot of the game after Houston gifted them an extra possession. It ended up being a wild turnaround three, only Butler looked to be inside the arc. Perhaps he was hoping for contact and a whistle. Either way, look for the Wolves to get him more involved on offense for Game 2. On defense, he did a nice job covering James Harden late but The Beard still turned in a sensational night, and when he was able to scoot by Butler the rest of the Wolves were a tic slow in rotating to help. If the Wolves are to steal a game on the road, Butler figures to be the catalyst.
