Jimmy Butler’s string of playing 45 minutes or more ended at four games, but not by choice. Early foul trouble dropped Butler to 32 minutes and robbed him of his full commitment in a high-profile matchup against Paul George.

“I enjoy going against him,” George said. “He makes me better.”

“He’s a great defender,” George said. “He’s good with his feet, his hands. He knows team defense as well as being a great on-ball defender. He’s physical. What makes him tough is he’s not a back-down kind of player.”
