Butler keyed a game-winning sequence in the final moments of Philadelphia's 122-119 overtime win over the Hornets on Saturday. The four-time All-Star first swatted away Charlotte guard Kemba Walker's go-ahead attempt, then saved the ball by throwing it back in-bounds to a teammate.
Following a timeout, on the ensuing possession, Butler was isolated at the top of the three-point arc. As the seconds ticked away, he pulled up from the right side of the arc and buried a go-ahead trey, giving the Sixers a three-point lead with 0.3 seconds left.
