His feet were soaking in a bucket of ice, his knees were wrapped in ice and his right index finger still was wrapped in black tape that had kept it protected from a sprain. A crowd gathered around him looking for answers, seeking a comment from Ron Artest on why he had been so productive for the Lakers in their victory over the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center on Wednesday night. Artest had given the Lakers one of his best efforts of the season, with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Butler patted his chest and waved to the crowd that gave him a standing ovation at American Airlines Center and then he did all he could to help the Clippers beat the Mavericks, his final potential game-winning three-pointer missing, sending L.A. to a 96-92 defeat.
