Jimmy Butler becomes only the 4th player in NBA history to achieve this feat in Heat’s win vs. OKC Thunder

While Jimmy Butler may be considered one of the most upfront and honest players in the league, a case has landed him in trouble more often than not. However, there is no denying that this 33-year-old veteran has the potential to carry his team past the victory line single-handedly. Miami Heat’s latest win against OKC Thunder was just a depiction of the same.

Who can forget Jimmy Butler leading the third-stringers to a hard-fought victory against the starters during his time with Minnesota Timberwolves or his gassed-out picture in the Orlando Bubble when he took Heat to the NBA Finals as the underdogs.

Now with Miami Heat missing Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro, and Kyle Lowry from game action, Jimmy Butler took it personally to lead his side past the victory line against all odds-on Tuesday Night. In the process, Butler also became only the fourth guy in the NBA to achieve this feat.

In 38 minutes of game action on Tuesday Night, Jimmy Butler scored 35 points despite going only 6-17 from the field. Moreover, his stellar free-throw shooting buoyed his scoring exploits for the entire night, as he went an incredible 23-23 from the charity stripe.

While doing the same, Jimmy Butler, the unarguable leader of Miami Heat, became only the fourth player in NBA history to make 22 or more free throws in a single game without a single miss, joining James Harden, Dirk Nowitzki, and Dominique Wilkins in that exclusive club, according to StatMuse.
