All-Star wing Jimmy Butler had a smashing regular-season debut with his team Tuesday night after missing the first three games due to paternity leave.
Butler scored 21 points while shooting 5-of-11 from the field. However, it was this crossover of Hawks guard Tyrone Wallace in the 112-97 win that had fans in South Beach buzzing.
Man, he didn’t have to do a lesser Wallace dirty like that. A behind the back crossover to get his opponent down in the court like he was on skates.
Just absolutely filthy stuff from Butler.
