Victor Oladipo finally made his playoff debut for the Heat as he played 23 minutes and scored 6 points in Game 4 win over the Hawks.

His teammate Jimmy Butler, who led Miami in scoring with 36 points, talked about Oladipo’s debut after the game. “As you can see, Vic was a huge part of us winning tonight,” he said. “It’s tough and he deserves to play. But that’s not my call. I don’t talk to anybody about it.

“I just always tell him ‘You be who you are, you stay aggressive because when your number is called, which it was, you see what happens.’”

The Heat are now a single win away from winning the series as they lead 3-1.
