The Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler scored 32 points along with eight rebounds and waved “bye-bye” to the Philly crowd as he sent his team into the Eastern Conference finals with a 99-90 win over the Joel Embiid-led Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night in Game 6.

After knocking out the 76ers, the Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra shared his thoughts on swingman Jimmy Butler: “I think he is one of the ultimate competitors in this profession … When his only focus is just driving a team to win, all the other things just become irrelevant.”
