Jimmy Butler had 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting in 45 minutes on Sunday, adding eight assists, seven rebounds and one block in Miami's season-ending loss.
After playing 47 minutes in Game 5, Butler followed up with a draining 45-minute performance tonight. He said on Saturday, "I left it all out there on the floor along with my guys [in Game 5] ... Like I always say, it's win or win for us." He didn't win a ring in the bubble, but he proved that he's a superstar and one of the toughest competitors in the league. Unfortunately, on Sunday he ran into an impassioned L.A. defense that was determined to swarm him and force other guys to beat them. It didn't happen. Given his durability and well-rounded production, he should be a first-round pick in most fantasy formats. Oct 11 10:29 pm (EST)
