Jimmy Butler: “The Celtics tried to embarrass us and they did”

Jimmy Butler He did not beat around the bush this Thursday after the resounding defeat of his Miami Heat against the Boston Celtics and assured that his team was humiliated on its own pitch.

“Yes, you have to move on (after the loss), but I don’t like doing it after this because it has to hurt,” he told the media after the match.

They tried to embarrass us and they did, so I think we have to realize that (…) the game can get out of hand at any moment when you play against a really good team like them that can score and slow you down defensively. In general, we have to be better. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us to go to Boston and win. But if they have done it, we can too, “he developed.

With an overwhelming and incontestable victory, the Celtics tied the East final 1-1 on Thursday after destroying the Heat 102-127 and thus avenged their loss on Tuesday in the first game by 118-107.

Butler, who was the best in Miami (29 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists), admitted that the Celtics beat them up and trusted that the Heat can’t get any worse after tonight.

The first half has been brutal for us in both games. We have to go out there and play harder from the jump start and be ready,” he added.

Kyle Lowry was again out in Miami, which also saw PJ Tucker leave the track with a knock to the knee.
