Before he went down with a non-contact injury to his right knee with three minutes left in the third quarter in a 120-102 loss at Houston on Friday night, Jimmy Butler laid down a challenge to Lou Williams:
Let’s play 1-on-1 for $100,000.

Butler, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ leading scorer, was selected as an NBA All-Star, but chose to not play in the All-Star Game because he felt he needed the rest.
That didn’t sit well with Williams, the Los Angeles Clippers guard, who is the NBA’s leading scorer in terms of bench points.
Of course, that didn’t sit well with Butler, prompting his challenge to play Williams, with $100K on the line.
However, with Butler now scheduled for an MRI today, it’s doubtful the proposed matchup will take place anytime soon, but it sure is entertaining to think about.
