Jimmy Butler offered baskets to every teammate20 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
The Houston Rockets come from a great win at defending champions building yesterday night, in a game where Ben McLemore was the most player in evidence, finishing with 28 points on 8/17 from 3-point range.
Although his team won and he recorded another triple-double, Russell Westbrook made history in a negative way. He was the 3rd player in the shot-clock era to attempt at least 25 shots in back-to-back games without netting 20 points in either game. His impact besides his scoring can be found in almost every statistic category, as he continues to pile up the rebounds and assists, while playing excellent defense throughout the game. However, it adds a little more fuel to the fire to Westbrook’s haters and resume the narrative about how inefficient he can be and has been in all his career.
The scary thing about this fact in general, is that the Rockets came away victorious against the Raptors with Russell Westbrook missing 20 shots. It’s proof that Mike D’Antoni’s team is not even close to their full potential yet, and when they finally sort it out, that could mean trouble for the rest of the league. Despite breaking these negative records, the All-Star guard is still a player everyone would welcome with open arms to their team.
