Jimmy Butler had trouble finding the bucket on Thursday, making just 6-of-16 shots from the field, but still managed to finish the game with 20 points.
Butler grabbed five rebounds, dished out seven assists, got two steals but committed four turnovers. We could see Butler play some point guard for the Timberwolves in the coming games, with Jeff Teague (knee) out and Tyus Jones hurting his finger in this game. Butler is a capable passer but is not true-point-guard material, so expect a rise in both turnovers and assists in the short term.
