Many have been comparing Miami Heat rookie Jaime Jáquez Jr. to Jimmy Butler as he’s been impressing in the early parts of the NBA season. As the Heat prepare to take on the Milwaukee Bucks in the final group play game of the NBA In-Season Tournament, Jáquez spoke to ClutchPoints, telling them how often he talks to Butler and how much he’s actually learned from him.
“I talk to Jimmy especially when he’s not playing. We talk all the time when I’m on the bench, and he’s telling me what he sees and telling me what I can do better,” Jáquez said. “Even in practice today, he’s talking to me about the little details on how I can improve my game. So it’s been a great help having such great veterans around, being able to voice their knowledge. So I’m just trying to take and run with it.”
