Jimmy Butler played incredible basketball to be part of his first win with the Philadelphia 76ers. The tremendous numbers of 28 points on 12 of 15 shooting from the field proves Butler can play well with his new teammates.
There were concerns Butler would clash with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons like he did with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins in Minnesota. His post-game interview explained the biggest difference with his new team.
“So much more fun to play with these guys. Everybody wants to win and when somebody messes up, you talk to them, they don’t take it personal and they do their job.”
