Today, the NBA Finals kicked off in G1. Although the Heat started to lead, they still lost 98-116 in the end and fell behind 0-1.
This season, the Heat have performed amazingly, whether it is the start of the season or the awesomeness of the playoffs, many people are eye-catching. Butler, as the leader of the Heat, naturally takes credit. In this playoffs, he led the team strongly, averaging 20.7 points, 4.5 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game. He also played the role of a veteran leader off the court. The Heat were able to reach the finals.
Facing the Lakers, this is obviously not an easy challenge. The Heat started quite well today, with Butler taking the lead, combining inside and outside offensively, breaking through the layup, and cooperating with his teammates to catch the ball and soaring three-pointers, playing a habitual rhythm.
The Heat established a good advantage early on, but were later caught up. As the game progressed, the confrontation between the two sides became more intense. Butler dribbled the offensively and faced
In the final stage of the first half, there was a nervous scene. Butler twisted his foot facing the defense during the breakthrough with the ball. It seemed that both his left and right feet were twisted. He also immediately limped on the court. . The Heat also called a timeout, and Butler adjusted afterwards.
Fortunately, the injury was not serious. Butler continued to play in the second half, and still had close shots, but in terms of the scene, the Heat are actually getting farther and farther away from victory, and the point difference is already quite large. But the Heat's attitude of not giving up is worthy of recognition.
In the final quarter, Butler still played on the court for a long time, and there are still efforts to create fouls, but the Heat have already lost this game early, and for Butler, the next game is more important.
