Jimmy Butler has been on fire ever since his trade from the Timberwolves to the 76ers, coming up with two clutch winners to help the 76ers get some momentum in the regular season.
Last Saturday, Butler dished out a clutch 3 to win the game for the 76ers in OT and today he did so to help 76ers complete a 20 point comeback over the Brooklyn Nets.
76ers had the possession going into the final seconds, trailing by a point, with Butler taking control of the ball and isolating Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
He then dished out a wonderful step back 3 and gave the 76ers the lead with 0.4 seconds left on the clock.
An interesting stat here is that Butler hadn’t hit a game winning or a game tying shot in his last 11 attempts.
But the former Timberwolves man has now done it in two games for the 76ers in his 7 since being traded.
76ers are 5-2 since Butler’s trade and have Butler to thank for 2 of those 5 wins.
He is proving to be the game changer that 76ers were so desperately looking for and hopefully can help extend this good run of form for the 76ers.

Two weeks ago, a frustrated and candid Jimmy Butler sat in a Sacramento locker room talking as if he’d be stuck with Minnesota all season long. Tonight, he buries his second game-winner in seven games with Philly. https://t.co/VuGgr25VVu
