Butler leads T-wolves with 33 points in 131-123 win vs. Cavs

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jimmy Butler's trade request last month instantly turned him from fan favorite to scorned superstar in Minnesota.

With some hustle steals and highlight-reel baskets, he quickly had the crowd at the home opener on his side.

Butler brushed off some early jeers, scoring 33 points in 36 minutes to lead the Timberwolves past the Cleveland Cavaliers 131-123 on Friday night.
