Beijing time on October 5, the third game of the finals, lacking Dragic and Adebayor, the Miami Heat beat the Los Angeles Lakers 115 to 104 upset. Jimmy Butler played the pinnacle of his career, contributing 40 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists in a triple-double. His magical performance rushed into the hot searches on American social media.
At the same time, Butler not only performed well on the offensive end, he also restrained James' offense on the defensive end. In this game, when James faced Butler's defense, he scored 11 points but made 6 turnovers. Since this data was counted (starting in 2014), this is the most mistakes James has made when defending against a player in a playoff game. You know, James made a total of 8 turnovers in this game, which tied his record for the worst turnovers in the Finals.
In fact, before the start of the Finals, there were technical statistics that said Butler was one of the best players in the league to defend James. It seems that James has made so many mistakes today, and the reason is that he met Butler!
