Butler exploded in the playoffs.
In the quarter-final series against the Bucks, he was a real problem for the official best defense of the NBA. Still, they simply had no solution for Butler, and his performance in those five games will be remembered as one of the best in the history of the NBA.
In the rest of the playoffs, the complete focus of opposing defenses was on him, so that’s essentially the main reason we take assists.
In the duels against the Knicks and now against the Celtics, Butler’s path to the rim and points is much more complex, so his contribution to creation is much more pronounced.

This is best confirmed by the fact that in the last 7 games, he averaged almost 7 assists, which is a considerable increase compared to the regular part.
If we look only at the series against the Bucks, he cleared this limit in 3 out of 4 duels, and in the game where he stayed “under,” he had precisely 5 assists.
He remained in the under in the previous matches mainly because of his team’s poor performance, especially from the three-point line (8/32).
Now that Boston has come back to life a little, they need to continue to focus and double on Butler, so the logical outcome of the situation is more return passes and potential assists for Jimmy.
