Jimmy Butler dropped a playoff career-high 36 points in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Nets.
Butler was seemingly the only Sixer that realized it was the playoffs and games started to matter again. He was 11-for-22 from the field and got to the line 15 times, making 13 of them. He also came up with nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Butler had taken a step back in terms of offensive usage since Tobias Harris was acquired, but this is exactly why the Sixers got Butler. He can take over games when you need, even if it didn't end up being enough this time.
