Jimmy Butler Calls Out Heat for Poor Play



Jimmy Butler

Following their loss to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday to the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler says that the team needs to step up their game amid their slow start to the season.

The Heat currently sit at 3-4 on the season, ranking 11th in the Eastern Conference after they made it to the NBA Finals last season, a disappointing start.

“There’s no excuses to not playing hard, not finishing possessions” Butler said, according to Larry Brown Sports’ Brendan Toppin. “We’re not playing the type of basketball that we say that we are, the culture that we say that we have. We ain’t doing that. Nobody is. Not me, not Bam (Adebayo), nobody. We’ve got to get back to that,” Butler said.
