Jimmy Butler made his debut with the 76ers tonight, and his first points as a Sixer did a good job of showing just how good he’ll be for the Philadelphia team.
Butler caught the ball on the wing and ran a give-and-go with Joel Embiid, who stood at the top of the floor. He backdoor cut hard, leaving Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier in the dust, and lifted off for a difficult hanging shot over Wesley Iwundu.
Butler didn’t seem nervous at all for his Sixers debut. Before the first quarter ended he already had 8 points and seemed to mesh well with the other Philadelphia players.
