Jimmy Butler's fourth game as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers was one for the history books.

Butler keyed a game-winning sequence in the final moments of Philadelphia's 122-119 overtime win over the Hornets on Saturday. The four-time All-Star first swatted away Charlotte guard Kemba Walker's go-ahead attempt, then saved the ball by throwing it back in-bounds to a teammate.

Following a timeout, on the ensuing possession, Butler was isolated at the top of the three-point arc. As the seconds ticked away, he pulled up from the right side of the arc and buried a go-ahead trey, giving the Sixers a three-point lead with 0.3 seconds left.

Butler finished the game with 15 points. His shot spoiled a 60-point effort from Walker, whose tally marked the most scored in a single game this season. The Sixers improved to 3-1 since acquiring Butler and 11-7 overall.
