In the third game of the finals, Jimmy Butler led the Miami Heat to a Jedi counterattack, eventually defeating Los Angeles 115-104
Butler scored a large triple-double with 40 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists in this game, and his performance was perfect. In the fourth quarter, he shouted at LeBron after hitting the ball, "You are in trouble now!"
Butler explained that he is not a trash talker, and the reason why he sprays LeBron is because the other party said such things to himself in the first quarter. As the other party, LeBron did not admit that he was the provocateur. LeBron made it clear that he was not the initiator of this curse. LeBron thinks this is meaningless: "I always like to use the game to speak. Some people like to talk trash, they think it can help them. I never take the initiative to provoke trash talk. That's not my way. I played the game itself as a kind of trash."
In this game, LeBron also got 25 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists in a quasi-triple-double. However, embarrassingly, he made up to 8 turnovers. In the final moments of the game, LeBron made low-level errors one after another.
LeBron did not admit that he provoked this scolding war, and he obviously couldn't satisfy the Heat fans. After all, judging from the video playback, the Lakers superstar seemed to spray Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro after the first quarter. Therefore, it is reasonable for Butler to spray him back after hitting a key ball in the fourth quarter.
So far, the Lakers have led the Heat 2-1 in the Finals. Judging from the situation, the Lakers are still the dominant party. For the Heat, there is still no timetable for Dragic's comeback, while insider Adebayor is likely to return from 50%. Through the victory in the third game, the Heat regained their confidence and restored some suspense in this round of the series.
Butler is too hard
