Jimmy Butler on adjusting to Sixers: ‘Basketball is basketball to me’

It's the fearless performance that may have just signalled the start of the 76ers "big-three" rein as Simmons, Butler and Joel Embiid combined for a total of 71 points, which proved enough to dash the herculean effort of Kemba Walker's 60-point game. Simmons exclaimed. "I'm ready to get back to Philly".

Asked how he has got so hot in the last couple of nights, Walker said in his on-court interview: "I'm just playing basketball". "I'm just mad that we lost". But I have so much trust in those guys to make plays and I want them to know I have so much trust in them to make plays.

"I'm always looking for him when he's running, especially in transition".

"For the most part I'm just working on my game".

JJ Redick jokingly bet Butler on the bench that he wouldn't call "game" on the final shot.

"I think the best thing that came out of it for us is when he misses the shot in a similar floor spot at the end of regulation, I'm looking over my assistant coaches shoulders and I am seeing the team getting him going".

All-star recruit Jimmy Butler has drained a massive OT three point jumper with 0.3 seconds on the clock to snatch Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers a thrilling win against the Charlotte Hornets.

On the assistance of Jeremy Lamb and Tony Parker, Walker added: "I need those guys - I'm not going to be scoring big points like this every night".

Brown was similarly impressed with Walker's offensive outburst. But instead of Blake Griffin, this time the Sixers had no answer for Kemba Walker.
