Down by 1 with 5.1 seconds left in regulation. Paul George gets the ball, goes one-on-one with Jimmy Butler, fades away and gets his potential game-winning shot attempt blocked by Butler.

“He’s a hell of a player, a tough guard for anybody in the league,” Butler said. “But he went right, pulled up and I was there to contest and got a piece of the ball.”

Some people argued it was a foul but obviously Coach Vogel didn’t see it that way.

“I don’t think there was a foul,” he said. “He just made a good defensive play.”

Besides the great D on George, who had his 7th straight game with at least 26 points, Butler also had the dunk of the game with this 1-hand oop.
