Jimmy Butler helped the Heat eliminate his former team the 76ers in Game 6 of the second round series (99-90). The 32-year-old small forward led the winners in scoring with 32 points while also playing team-high 43 minutes.
After the game he was asked if he had any extra motivation playing against the Sixers, a team that he had spent part f the 2018-2019 NBA season.
“No, not at all,” Butler responded. “This is a business, that’s what this league is. It didn’t work out. I’m not complaining. I love being here in Miami. I love the group of guys that we have.
“I’m not changing anything that happened. I’m here for a reason and we’re gonna ride this wave. Take it back to the 305, get ready for the next round and work our way towards this championship.”
