Jimmy Butler scored 40 points with 11 boards, four assists, one 3-pointer and four steals against the hapless Nets on Wednesday.
Okay, “hapless” might be a bit strong, but Brooklyn was absolutely incapable of containing Butler tonight. He went 14-of-29 from the floor and 11-of-11 from the line to further bolster his line, and was able to repeatedly shake defenders and draw contact in the lane. Butler’s been unbelievable this season, and currently sits at 10th overall on the player rater. Enjoy the ride, folks.
