Jimmy Butler takes over New York
The Knicks, who fell to the Miami Heat in Game 1, lost a lot by not having Randle. The challenge of competing against "Playoff Jimmy Butler" was inevitable. Butler didn't blow up like he did in the series with the Milwaukee Bucks. However, the Knicks lost as a result of his effectiveness and thoughtful moves. He erased Miami's first-half deficit and led the team's comeback in the second. He recorded 25 points and 11 rebounds by game's end.
