The Indiana Pacers will face the Miami Heat tonight. Despite the fact that a win will give the advantage for the 4th seed to either side, the TJ Warren-Jimmy Butler beef, which was created in the last game between the two teams, is another ‘spicy’ element of the contest.

Warren talked to ESPN’s Eric Woodyard about the game and the fact that he will face Butler, again.

“When you compete at a high level like that, you’re going to run into other competitors,” said the Pacers forward, who is having the greatest stint of his career in the first 5 games of the NBA restart.

With Jimmy Butler being back from an ankle injury, the Pacers and Heat will play each other again after Monday’s contest.

All eyes are going to be on Jimmy Butler and TJ Warren in both games, even if both guys treat the game as just another matchup.
