The Stat Line of the Night — 4/27/10 — Caron Butler

caron butlerCaron Butler has not played well in the playoffs so far, watching his team limp to a 3-1 deficit in their series against the San Antonio Spurs.  The Mavericks are the 2-seed and although the Spurs are a tough draw at the 7-seed, Dallas’s performance has been a disappointment.  New acquisition Butler was even benched in Game 2.  He wasn’t ready to give away the series quite yet, and a different, more focused Butler showed up for Game 5 last night.

Butler’s toughness and athleticism that earned him the nickname “Tough Juice” were on display in full force.  Butler shot 12-24 from the floor for 35 points en route to a 103-81 Mavs win.  He also had 11 rebounds, 3 steals, an assist and a block.  He shot 8-9 from the free throw line and hit 3 three-pointers as well.  Butler’s 35 was a career playoff best for him.  He had some help from his former teammate from Washington Brendan Haywood as well.  He had 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 blocks and was able to blanket Tim Duncan defensively.

Now the series is back to 3-2 and Dallas survives to fight another day.  Unfortunately for them the series now moves to San Antonio for a crucial Game 6 on Thursday night.  Whether the Mavs can win or not will depend a lot on the play of their X-factor, Caron Butler.  For now, he can celebrate the big win and “The Stat Line of the Night”.
