NIGHTLY PRO NOTABLES: Jimmy Butler’s Clutch Free Throws & Harden’s Game-Winning Block – September 2, 2020

Welcome to Nightly Pro Notables: a collection of the hottest sneakers and biggest moments of the night on September 2, 2020.

Today, wild finishes took place in the game 7 and game 2 action tonight in the bubble. Clutch performances from Jimmy Butler and James Harden (on defense?!) helped win their games. We also saw some Jordan heat from Coach Spo and (of course) P.J. Tucker.

Without further ado, check below for more details on a wild night of Disney World NBA basketball.


PRO HIGHLIGHTS

Jimmy’s Clutch Buckets

In one of the stranger endings in NBA Playoff history, Jimmy Butler was fouled with no time left in a tie game. The ensuing free throws gave the Miami Heat a 2-0 series lead over the best team record-wise in the NBA in the Bucks. Wild stuff.

Despite no longer being contracted with the Jordan Brand, Jimmy rocked the Jordan Jumpman Diamond Low for this game. The white and red colorway isn’t available, but you can other colors at StockX.

James Harden: the Defensive Mastermind

Despite having an off-night on offense, James Harden made the biggest defensive play of the game. With Lu Dort running wild in the game, Harden somehow blocked his go-ahead 3-pointer with seconds remaining. The pesky Harden then tussled with Dort, who stepped out of bounds to give the Rockets the ball.

The black, green and blue adidas Harden Vol. 4 that James wore tonight isn’t available, but you can find other colors at StockX,Β GOAT, andΒ DicksSportingGoods.com

Bam Slams on ‘Em

Bam Adebayo lived up to his emphatic name on this lob poster dunk over the Bucks Donte Divincenzo.

You can find the “Unlucky 13” Nike Kobe 5 Protro that Adebayo wore this game at StockX.


PRO PERFORMANCES

Lu Dort Makes History

Between all of the MVPs and all-stars that played today, Lu Dort was the high point man amongst the two playoff games with 30. He may have made a key blunder late, but the Thunder aren’t in this game without all the threes swished early on.

Dort also scored the most points ever in a game 7 by an undrafted player:

Ironically enough, Lu Dort used to play in the adidas Harden Vol. 4 prior to the playoffs. For competition purposes he has been wearing the adidas Dame 6, which you can find at StockXΒ andΒ Dicks Sporting Goods.


PRO SNEAKERS

In addition to making the go-ahead bucket in tonight’s game 7, PJ Tucker got his sneaker game off with a classic from 2010.

Westbrook Rocks Alternate Signature Shoes

Since Russell Westbrook’s return to the court, he’s rocked the Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 like before. This time around, the Brody lightened his sneakers up with the Why Not Zer0.3 SE. This version removes the strap and other layers to help the wearing become faster.

The Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 SE “Primary Colors” seen above can be found at StockX.
