Jimmy Butler put on a show in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics. The 32-year-old small forward dropped 41 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and dished out 5 assists in 41 minutes of play leading the Heat to a win (118-107).
He was by far the best player on the floor in this game. According to sports analyst Skip Bayless, Butler is the best player left in the playoffs.
“I’LL SAY IT AGAIN: JIMMY BUTLER IS THE BEST PLAYER LEFT IN THE PLAYOFFS … AND HE WAS EASILY THE BEST PLAYER ON THE FLOOR TONIGHT,” Bayless tweeted in all caps.
