Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns combined for just 37 points in the first two games in Houston, but Butler exploded for 28 points, seven rebounds and five assists on Saturday. Since the 16-team playoff format was adopted in 1983-84, this is the first time the Rockets have been the West's No. 1 seed.
