Jimmy Butler led all scorers with 38 points Wednesday night as the 76ers fell to the Raptors north of the border. Butler's 38 points were his Philadelphia- and season-high and the most he'd scored since he matched that total back in February when he was still a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves in a game against his original team, the Chicago Bulls.

Fantasy Impact:

Butler's best scoring performance as a Sixer came against one of the league's premier defenders in Kawhi Leonard. Both stars grabbed the spotlight in this pivotal Eastern Conference matchup between the teams with the most wins in the conference. Butler's 27 field goal attempts and seven three-point attempts were each highs for his Philadelphia tenure as well.
