Butler delivers late on the 76th mission to defeat Nets

NEW YORK – Jimmy Butlerhis new teammates saw him move to one of his favorite places on the field and knew what to expect.

Butler made a 3-pointer with the remaining 2.3 seconds to give Philadelphia 76s victory over 127-125 over Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.

"A man to tell you the truth that he might be someone," Sixers added recently.

"They have a lot of confidence in me, but I have much more confidence in these guys, and they really got us back."

However, Butler's right wing shot, similar to the one who beat Charlotte overtime on November 17th, limited the Philadelphia rally to 20 points in a game that the net was leading almost all the way.

Butler finished with 34 points and 12 rebounds, and Joel Embid there were 32 points and 12 boards for the 76 who earn five of their last six games.

The decision to play in time after his ankleback against Cleveland on Friday evening, Butler looks good after spending Saturday at Villain's gym.

He shot photos from about 20 different locations, including the same area, where he would continue to make the 76th winner.

Embye became accustomed to Butler's drama for the dramatic, but he knew his new teammate had to rush shortly after Philadelphia scored the ball for another 10.2 seconds.

"He kept taking his time and I'm like," Will you be sad to shoot the ball? "Embid said," You know, you play for a long time, get to his place and make a big shot.

Nets shot 57 percent of the field and hit 46 percent beyond the 3-point line to make half the lead by 68-54 before the 76s came together.

Do not be Angelo Russell had 38 points, his highest total for Nets and added eight assists and eight rebounds. Spencer Dinvidy scored 31 points from the bench for Brooklyn, which is only 3-6 home.

"It's tough, we played 45 minutes from this game and lost it for one shot, but we were a chance," Russell said.

The 76, which are the best team in the 10-1 rating, improved only 4-7 from the center of Wells Fargo.

Butler, whose first winner in the game with Shires has demolished Kemba Walker60th in Charlotte, led Philadelphia in the fourth quarter after it seemed sluggish in the first three quarters.

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown was equally impressed with Butler's effort when he returned to a relegated ball after JJ Reddick missed the potential of the basket.

Brown remembered Butler doing a similar game against Hornets when he blocked a shot and saved the ball from leaving the border to set up his winner.

"Televisions will play their shots," Brown said. "I hope they will come out for a few seconds and watch him on the floor and make a jump.

Brooklyn led 118-105 after Dinwiddie's trash with 4:57, staying in the fourth quarter.

Then Philadelphia continued 16-2 and led 121-120 in Redick's 3-shot, leaving 1: 03, their first behavior after Embiid scored the first two points in the game.

Joe Harris replied with 3 of his own to put Nets back in, but Embiid returned to the other end, turning three-point play after Harris led him to give Philadelphia 124-123 lead.

Dinwiddie briefly put Brooklyn back on the top with a jumper over Regic, putting the scene at Butler's Big shot.
