Jimmy Butler Trolls Raptors Before Game 3

The Philadelphia 76ers stole home court advantage in-game two behind Jimmy Butlers 30 point, 11 rebound effort. Jimmy Butler is known for his work ethic and ability to get under a teams skin and today per Eric Koreen on twitter “Before game 1 Kawhi Leonard shot around on his home court despite team not doing it, pushing the Philadelphia 76ers shootaround back. This morning, Jimmy Butler is doing the same.” This move is on brand with Jimmy Butler’s brand expect Jimmy Butler to offer more of the same tonight as the Sixers should stick with the game plan that led to a game 2 victory.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy outlook: Game 2 Jimmy shot 10 three pointers, which was a career high. Don’t expect that volume of outside shots in-game 3, however the Philadelphia 76ers found a formula that worked on offense with Joel Embiid being under the weather. Plan for Brett Brown to stick with this pattern at home tonight.
