"Jimmy Butler's Calming Presence Powers Heat to Stunning Comeback in Clutch Playoff Games"
Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat is never too fazed by pressure-filled moments, something that has been a major factor in the team's run to the Eastern Conference finals. "I love that gnarly version of Jimmy," said coach Erik Spoelstra. "Every single game felt like for weeks on end, every game was ending on the last-second shot." Through the postseason, the Heat have found themselves in games that reach "clutch time" 62 times and boast an impressive 10-3 record.
In the second game of the conference finals, the Celtics had a 11-point lead in the fourth quarter. Jimmy Butler stepped forward and he, as well as forwards Bam Adebayo and Caleb Martin, granted the team a 24-9 run to win it. "Just being in those situations 50-plus times during the regular season, that just brings great experience for us," said Adebayo. Despite the Celtics blowing two 10-point fourth-quarter leads in the playoffs, the Heat's confidence and edgy calmness -- courtesy of Jimmy Butler -- has helped them achieve five road wins in their last seven matches. Game 3 on Sunday promises to be another exciting clash!
