“I don’t know,” Butler said. “We just got a really good team. Everybody showed up tonight.”
True everybody did show up including Pau Gasol who had 27 and 14, Rose who had 19 and 9 assists and Mirotic who scored 17 points, but it was the Butler who outscored James Harden and held the NBA scoring leader and player of the month to only 3 points in the 2nd half.
Butler also had some great highlights against the Beard in the first half including this stuff on Harden at the end of the first quarter.
And this alley-oop dunk on Dwight Howard to start the 2nd quarter.
