The Miami Heat are getting ready to face the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. It will be the fifth seed against the third seed respectively.

It seems the seeding means little in these playoffs as both of the top two seeds in the East are already eliminated. Jimmy Butler thinks that Miami deserves to be in this stage and does not consider his team as an underdog.

“I don’t think that we’re the underdog. I think we’re a really good team. We play together, everybody knows their role and we just compete. … We’re supposed to be here,” Butler said per Anthony Chiang of Miami Herald.
