  • Jimmy Butler Meets, Embraces Sixers GM Elton Brand At Minneapolis Airport

Once again, the Philadelphia 76ers' star center got the best of the Miami Heat.

That sentiment was shared by 76ers general manager Elton Brand, who said the team spoke with some of Butler's past teammates before trading for him.

"I'm going to lock into it [the playbook] and figure it all out", Butler said post-game of the confusion.

Isaac, whose brief National Basketball Association career has been filled with stops and starts because of a series of ankle injuries, will be back in action tonight following a six-game lay off when the Magic (6-8) face the new-look 76ers (9-6) at Amway Center.

But it didn't, and the Sixers found themselves on the wrong end of another close loss - just as they have several other times this season.

But after birdieing the par-four 13th, the four-time major victor twice drove into the bushes, leading to sixes at the par-five 14th and the par-four 17th.

The team's first opportunity to get the Big Three together will be Wednesday against the Orlando Magic.

Timberwolves: The win was Minnesota's fifth straight against New Orleans. The offseason addition of Anthony Tolliver has helped, as he is averaging 3.7 3-point attempts per game while also making 41.7 percent, but Saric is a step up with a career average of 4.7 three-point attempts per game. Isaac, playing limited minutes in his first game back after missing six consecutive contests due to a sprained ankle, only needed a few seconds to make his presence felt.

"I think if a player had a problem with me, they would [say it]", Butler said. Butler, for example, touched the ball just 41 times, according to Second Spectrum tracking data - his lowest total of the season and the sixth-most of anyone on the Sixers. If any of them needs my help, I'm always (going to try) to help them to the best of my ability. The lesser known name of the 76ers recent trade action, Chandler set about a second half tear as he announced himself to the league amid Butler's high-profile debut. "No matter what, we're expected to win". "Although we lost, the organization of the things we put in put us in decent position".

"We hope he sees a fit here".
