Suns coach Monty Williams claims ‘there’s nothing’ Heat star Jimmy Butler can’t do

Suns, Heat, Monty Williams, Jimmy Butler

Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams and Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler were together in Philadelphia last season when Butler was on the Sixers and Williams was an assistant coach.

Williams and the Suns host Butler and the Heat on Thursday. At the Suns’ pregame shootaround, Williams said “there’s nothing” Butler can’t do on a basketball floor:

Butler is a four-time All-Star and one of the best two-way players in the game. He’s averaging 15.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game for the Heat while shooting 35.4 percent from the field, 23.1 percent from beyond the arc and 71.9 percent from the free-throw line.

Butler’s shooting numbers should improve as the season moves along. He missed the first three games of the season due to the birth of his daughter, so Butler is still trying to find his rhythm.

The Suns have to expect the best version of the Heat on Thursday. Miami is coming off a blowout loss to the Denver Nuggets. Erik Spoelstra’s crew will surely be hungry to get back in the win column after getting embarrassed in Denver.

NBA fans will be eager to see Butler and Suns star shooting guard Devin Booker go at it. Booker is one of the top scorers in the league, while Butler loves to defend the best players in the NBA.
