SIXERS SLIDE INTO 3RD IN EAST THANKS TO JIMMY BUTLER!

By Sarah Paley

Wouldn’t it be great if Jimmy Butler were still a Sixer, instead of a member of the Miami Heat, where he took his talents after the 2019 season in Philly?

Well, he actually helped the Sixers last night.

His 24 points, three rebounds, two dimes and a steal in last night’s 106-98 win over Boston slid the Sixers into 3rd place in the East ahead of the C’s..

The Heat were coming off a win but had lost four in a row prior to that. “I think we got a little comfortable, expecting we were going to win every night,” Butler said of Miami’s slump. “We have lapses at times, but I feel like we have a championship-caliber team. When we are clicking, we are tough to beat.” The Heat trailed for most of the evening, but they outscored the Celtics 27-15 in the fourth which should give them a ton of confidence going forward. Kyle Lowry added 23 points and eight assists for Miami.
