Magic Johnson had high-praise for Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler, after his 40-point triple-double masterpiece in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The Lakers’ legend took the Twitter and shared his thoughts on Butler’s ‘tremendous leadership ability’ he showed in the game.

“Jimmy Butler displayed his tremendous leadership ability tonight as well. Before the game he said he felt good about the Heat chances showing he had a good pulse on the team,” Johnson posted in his official Twitter account.

The Miami Heat veteran performance was evidently all-around tremendous in both ends of the floor. He scored 40 points along with 13 assists and 11 rebounds to go with two steals and two blocks. He also shot 70 percent from the field.

Erik Spoelstra talked on the need for Butler to step up his game even more, after Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic went down with injuries in Game 1.

Butler did a little more than just a step up in Game 3.
