Jimmy Butler O1.5 1Q Assists - 1.83 - 2/4 B365

Kyle Lowry has been looking rough dealing with an injury through the last 2 games, and is understandably out tonight. That leaves a nice playmaking spot for Jimmy, as well as heavy minutes.

Butler plays the first 11 of 12 minutes (1Q), which leaves plenty of time on the clock to get at least 2 assists. Miami has been shooting horribly the last 2 games, but that should change now that they are at home + some positive regression for them.

Jimmy Butler singlehandedly held them in the last few games, but there should be emphasis on getting others involved early tonight. Philly should also do a better job of containing him on drives, which will lead to kick-outs and better shots.
