Top Jimmy Butler News

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Huge effort not enough

    Butler provided 35 points (13-24 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-11 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 48 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Butler was magnificent in Game 6 and could've been the hero for Miami in Game 7, but he could not lift Miami to victory in a game that went down to the wire. Butler was quite inconsistent on a game-to-game basis, but he surpassed the 20-point mark in four of the contests during the series against the Celtics. He averaged 27.4 points per game during the playoffs.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Shines in Game 6 victory

    Butler registered 47 points (16-29 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 11-11 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, one block and four steals over 46 minutes during Friday's 111-103 win over the Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Butler didn't score more than 13 points in any of the previous three games of the series, but he quieted all his doubters with a masterful performance in Game 6. The star forward picked up his spots efficiently, as he only needed 29 shots to come close to the 50-point plateau and was perfect from the charity stripe, but he also left his mark in other categories as well by ending just one rebound and two assists shy of a triple-double. While Butler is not likely to repeat these numbers Sunday in Game 7 of the series, the Heat need him at his best if they want a legitimate shot at reaching the NBA Finals for the second time in the last three seasons.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Struggles again Wednesday

    Butler supplied 13 points (4-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one block and two steals across 40 minutes during Wednesday's 93-80 loss to Boston in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Butler stated after Monday's loss that his ailing knee wasn't responsible for his struggles in that contest, but it seems logical that the injury is at least partly holding him back after the star forward put up another poor shooting line in Game 5. Butler has shot a troubling 7-for-32 (21.9 percent) over the past two contests, which the Heat have dropped to fall behind 3-2 in the series. He opened the semifinals by scoring 70 points across his first two games but has averaged just 9.0 points over the subsequent three matchups.

  • Heat's Jimmy Butler: Struggles massively Monday

    Butler produced six points (3-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during Monday's 102-82 loss to the Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Butler exited Game 3 early with a knee injury, but he was able to recover well enough to start Monday. However, the veteran forward didn't come anywhere near his usual level of production, going 3-for-14 from the field en route to only six points -- the fewest he has scored since going 2-for-14 and producing six points March 2 against Milwaukee. Butler's ailing knee may have contributed to the poor performance, though he wasn't using it as an excuse after the game, stating, "I'm straight. No excuses for how I played. It's got nothing to do with my knee. I've just got to be better -- I will be better. I'm not too worried about it," per Coley Harvey of ESPN.
