There’s a player who has declared that he’s going to have fun during the NBA Finals. But the fans are too reassuring.
The Miami Heat lost 99-116 to the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals of the 2023 NBA Playoffs on Thursday (Feb. 24) at the Casilla Center.
Miami suffered its first loss of the series. After winning three games to start the series, Miami was stunned by Boston.
The Heat still have the upper hand. There has never been a time in the long history of the NBA when a team with a 3-0 lead has had the series reversed.
It’s certainly possible that Miami could be the first victim. However, with their ace in the hole, Jimmy Butler, many have ruled out that possibility altogether. That’s because Butler thrives on the big stage, and he’s a huge tough guy, so there’s no way he’s going to let a 3-0 lead slip away.
What kind of post-game interview did Butler give after Game 4, was he angry about his team’s loss?
No, he wasn’t. Instead, he had a clear plan. “We’re going to do what we do before Game 5. We’re going to listen to music, we’re going to drink beer, we’re going to drink wine,” he said.메이저놀이터
Butler added, “You can’t just focus on basketball. Sometimes you have to leave basketball. We’re going to laugh. We’re going to come together as a team, and we’re going to win games on the road,” he smiled.
Miami is showing off some of the best team chemistry of the playoffs so far. As the No. 8 seed, they’re easily taking down the top dogs in the playoffs. Butler said he plans to enjoy listening to music and drinking with his teammates. It’s a great way to build on the team’s strengths of team chemistry and continue the pattern they’ve established.
Game 5 between Miami and Boston will take place at 9:30 a.m. ET on Feb. 26 at Boston’s home TD Garden.
