Jimmy Butler accounted for 17 points (5-of-11 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one blocked shot in 36 minutes Friday vs. the Celtics.
Butler was a bit more aggressive offensively at the start of Game 5 than he’s been in prior games this series, but he went quiet at the wrong time as Boston turned things around in the third quarter. During that period Miami’s leader shot 1-of-4 from the field, and as a team the Heat were outscored by a 41-25 margin in the frame. Butler likes to pick his spots from a scoring standpoint, but he may need to be aggressive throughout the entire game if the Heat are to close out the Celtics on Sunday. Sep 25 11:38 pm (EST)
