Jimmy Butler scored a team-high 24 points against the Celtics on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
The Scoop: If you were concerned about his usage rate with the new talent next to him, don't be. He had a a usage monster in Derrick Rose next to him last year, had 24.0 usage rate in the preseason, and kicked this season off with a 25.0 in his massive playing time. On top of that, the triples are a nice surprise. Butler should be a rock-solid, top-25 player in standard leagues with first-round upside.
