Jimmy Butler shows out in Game 1
Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat once again proved that when there's a will, there's a way to pull out a victory against a top opponent.
Game 1 against the Boston Celtics was an up and down roller coaster ride, if you were a Heat fan. The start of the second half was very much lopsided for Miami. Boston went on a 10-2 run and it looked like the C's were going for the kill, but Max Strus, Kevin Love, and yes, Butler hit three after three after three to stop the bleeding and keep the Heat within striking distance..
Each time Boston scored, Miami would hit a three to extend their lead. Butler took over in the fourth. From scoring, assisting, to getting some crucial steals down the stretch, Butler was the engine that kept the Heat moving in the direction of a victory. After a 35 point performance and a win, Butler had this to say about the people who were not buying in the Heat's stock and had them as the underdogs in this series.
“Damn right, I did. Damn right, we did. And the best part about it is we still don't care what none of y’all think… We don’t care if you pick us to win.”
Game 2 will be played Friday!
