Heat does not hold Celtics in the NBA, and Butler makes a big rant

The Heat failed to hold the Celtics in the NBA playoffs and squandered the chance to end the series; Jimmy Butler revealed he was bothered by the two consecutive defeats

For butler there is only one option to heat in the confrontation against Celtics and it’s winning. After managing to make it 3-0 on the aggregate scoreboard and indicating a possible ‘sweep’, Miami dropped in performance and lost the last two games. Last Thursday, the 25th, for example, at TD Gardenthe team saw the opponents apply a victory of 110 to 97 and reduce the difference to 3 to 2.

After the game five loss to the Celtics, Butler left the court with the idea of ​​not giving any more gap to Boston. The Miami star wants to close the series in the sixth match between the two teams and stamp the vacancy for the NBA final with the eastern conference title being won at home. For this, the player passed a ‘recipe’ to his teammates.

We have to play better. Starting the game better, for the starters, making it more difficult for them. They’ve been at an intense pace since the start of the game. But let’s always stay positive, knowing that we can and will win this series. We will have to close it at home“, stated

In addition, Butler was also critical of the Heat’s handling of the series. After achieving an overwhelming start and with a sequence of important victories, the last two matches represented a significant drop in performance. For the Heat ace, the two most recent games of the confrontation did not reflect the potential that the team has. Therefore, for next Saturday, the 27th, at the Kaseya Center, the expectation is that things will change.

Because the last two games didn’t represent who we are. What happened is we stopped playing defense halfway through because we didn’t make the shots we wanted to. But that’s easy to fix. You just need to go out and throw harder from the jump. As I always say, it’s going to be all smiles, and we’re going to keep it very, very, very consistent, knowing that we’re going to win the next game.“, completed the player who scored 14 points in game five between the Celtics and Heat.
