The Miami Heat kept alive the NBA Finals series against the Los Angeles Lakers thanks to another stellar performance by Jimmy Butler.
The 31-year-old forward finished the game with 35 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists as the Heat beat the Lakers 111-108 in Game 5. Butler admitted to leaving it all out on the floor, saying this is how Miami has to play from now on.
“I left it all out there on the floor along with my guys. That’s how we are going to play from here on out. Like I always say, it’s one to win for us. This is the position that we’re in. We like it this way. We got two more to get,” Butler said after the game.
