Jimmy Butler is very confident in his ability to win it all this season and bring another championship to South Beach.
The Miami Heat came back from a 17 point deficit in Game 2 to beat the Boston Celtics, 106-101. The entire squad chipped in for the win, as 6 Heat players were in double digits.
The Boston Celtics had no answer for the Heat’s swarming zone defense, and this was in large part due to Jimmy Butler having active hands in the passing lanes, leading the Heat in steals.
When asked about his defense, Jimmy Butler said, “My job tonight was defense.”

Jimmy Butler was one of the only players in the Bubble to not bring over any family members into the Bubble as he stated this was a “Business trip.”
Jimmy Butler has always exuded confidence when it came to his play on the basketball court.
Do the Miami Heat have the Boston Celtics’ number?
With the Boston Celtics blowing 2 substantial leads in Games 1 and 2, the Miami Heat have shown that they are here to stay.
The talk around the team has been their insane switching ability on defense when it comes to their zone, with Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo at the helm of the defense.
It is apparent that Erik Spoelstra has thoroughly out-coached Brad Stevens in these first 2 games.
