    Jimmy Butler had 30 fateful seconds in the fourth to forget.

    The Philadelphia 76ers star guard lost the ball in a tie game on a drive down the lane that led to Atlanta's John Collins finding separation and burying a fadeaway jumper with 25 seconds left for the lead.

    Butler had a chance at atonement -- he was 12 for 12 at the free-throw line and had two shots with 2.4 seconds left.

    First shot, rattle and miss.

    Second shot, clang off the back of the rim.

    Wilson Chandler slipped under the basket on the second attempt and missed his gimmie tip-in at the horn that helped the Hawks hang on to beat the Sixers 123-121 on Friday night.
