Jimmy Butler was hot on Friday night, scoring a game-high 30 points on 9-of-19 shooting from the field in 39 minutes of play. Butler also chipped in four rebounds, five assists, three steals, and four turnovers on the night.

Fantasy Impact:

Butler led the way with Joel Embiid sitting out for the night with a sore ankle. Butler was 12-of-14 from the free-throw line, with his two misses coming in a critical moment with 2.4 seconds left in the game. Look for Butler to stay hot, especially if Embiid were to miss any further time. He’s a must-start in all formats.
