Lost Start for Butler with Philadelphia – Info Wire – NBA


Jimmy Butler was on the floor that night, until then nothing surprising. But the former Chicago glory was wearing the shirt of his new team, Philadelphia, who moved on the Orlando floor. The beginnings of "Jimmy Buckets" did not take place ideally; Sixers were surprised by a Magic Evan Fournier (9 points) at the right place tonight, led by Nikola Vucevic (31 points). If Joel Embiid finished triple-double (19 points, 13 rbds, 10 wt), Jimmy Butler returned a fair score sheet for his first: 14 points, 4 rbds, 2 wd at 50% shooting. In Memphis duo Milwaukee, Mike Conley (26 points) – Marc Gasol (29 points), struggled to surprise Bucks home. Despite an impressive Giannis Antetokounmpo (31 points, 9 rbds, 4 wt), Memphis wins 116-113.
