Trailing by one against the Brooklyn Nets with the clock running down Sunday, the four-time All-Star created a sliver of separation from defender Rondae Hollis-Jefferson on the right wing and stepped back for an above-the-break 3-pointer with just 2.3 seconds left on the clock.
"Another play drawn up by (Sixers coach Brett Brown), and my teammates have a lot of confidence in me to take shots late," Butler said following the 127-125 win, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. "I got to the spot that I wanted to get to. Raised up, and I knocked it down."
"To tell you the truth, it could have been anybody," Butler said. "They do have a lot of confidence in me, but I have so much more confidence in those guys."
