Butler registered 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt), three rebounds, seven assists and one steal over 25 minutes during Friday's 121-92 win over the Clippers.
Butler got more than his usual share of playing time with Donovan Mitchell (calf) unable to go and Utah roaring to a 37-point lead by halftime. The rookie responded with easily his best game of the campaign, registering career-best marks in points, triples and assists. He isn't likely to be a key player for the Jazz down the stretch or into the playoffs, but he has shown some promise with averages of 13.3 points, 2.3 three-pointers, 5.0 assists and 2.5 boards in games during which he has logged at least 20 minutes.Profile
