The Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis took the task of guarding Jimmy Butler in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. While on the task, AD made a crucial block on Butler in the fourth quarter.

Following the Heat’s loss, Butler was asked about the challenges that being guarded by Davis gives. He praised AD as a great defender.

“He’s an incredible defender. He contests a lot of shot, blocked shots at that. But I just think I got to be better at getting my guys involved. More dribble hand off more screens. Maybe playing a little bit without the ball. Playing off the ball. That’s something that I can learn from that,” Butler said.

“I got to be better because I think that’s my role is to make sure that everybody’s in the right spot and that I’m putting us in the best position to win. So we got to switch it up a little bit.”
