Jimmy Butler tallied 14 points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3PT, 6-6 FT) along with four rebounds, three assists, a game-high four steals, and one turnover across 36 minutes in a win over the Celtics.
Butler struggled to find his rhythm through the first three quarters but turned it up late, scoring six points in the final three minutes of the game. He continues to play with poise, control, and pace and often likes to get his teammates involved before looking for his shot. However, his defense and late-game shooting helped propel the Heat to a 2-0 lead over the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Butler finished the evening as a top-5 performer in DFS, scoring 34.3 points in Fanduel and 31 points in Draftkings.
