The Miami Heat waged war against every team they met on their way to the conference finals. They’re 10-2 in the NBA Playoffs 2020, and that has shut many haters down the road. If they make it into the NBA finals, it will be unbelievable that a #5 seed went that far.
Although, the road ahead will not be smooth with an opponent as stubborn and resilient as the Boston Celtics. The Miami based franchise will have to stay heated if they’re to win this series before it gets pushed to a Game 7. Jimmy Butler, the star forward, will have a big role to deliver here.
Miami Heat forward speaks out!
Many critics had earlier said that Jimmy G. Buckets needs to pull out more aggression in his plays. However, the man who just turned 31 this past week feels otherwise. He gave a befitting response to his critics when he said, “As long as we win, there’s no problem with anything.”
Jimmy Butler, on those who say he needs to be more aggressive early, “As long as we win, there’s no problem with anything.”

Now, this “as long as we win” mentality can prove to be a double-edged sword for the star. It is the post-season and the series can slip away even as every setback counts a lot.
However, he has really been putting on a great show as of now as he is averaging 20.6 points with 47% FG and a crazy 47.8 3P%. It is rare that a player has his 3P accuracy better than his field-goal accuracy. Such a performance coming in the Playoffs is the icing on the cake for the Heat.
Jimmy Butler has some solid supporting hands!
The Miami Heat surely lost game 3, but their center Bam Adebayo registered a double-double with 27 points and 16 rebounds. He was named in the second team of the NBA All-Defensive list, and that is reflecting well in his numbers.
Tyler Herro has been another glittering star in the sky of Heat as he has surprised one and all with the character he has brought out. He has been phenomenal from behind the arc and has continued to make his presence felt in every game.
Jimmy Butler, with his ever-growing competitive spirit, will naturally get more aggressive as the series proceeds. Let’s see how they roll out in Game 4.
