Jimmy Butler takes the blame for the loss to Boston

Much of the 1 in the Heat’s locker in the final stages of the East is due to Jimmy Butler. In the first game, the forward gave an absolute exhibition with 41 points, 5 assists, 9 rebounds, 4 steals and 18 free throws. Yesterday his production was not negligible, but he was only able to dominate the game during some stretches of the third quarter despite his 29 points, 3 assists and 6 rebounds. Perhaps the 8 free throws he forced serve as an example of the less physical superiority he showed than in Game 1. Still, Butler takes the blame. “I don’t think it’s Spoelstra’s or Adebayo’s fault. I sign it up» He said disappointed in the postgame.

The small forward explained why he believes that his team’s bad offensive game weighs heavily on his shoulders. “I think it’s my job because I have the ball for a long time that everyone has their shots. I must find the middle ground between my entry and involving the rest. Today I have been somewhat selfish », assured the star of the Heat. Butler is starring in some overwhelming playoffs and it has already become customary to see him take the team on his back when they come badly. On the track and off it. These statements are yet another demonstration of his desire to carry everything possible to exempt his teammates and coaching staff so that they can prepare for the next game with a clear conscience.
