A reaction from the Heat was expected. At the break of this Game 2 against the Celtics, the Floridians returned to their locker room with a gap of 25 points (45-70). In the third quarter, Jimmy Butler then sought to wake up his team. The team leader had 16 of Miami’s 26 points in the period.

Thanks to the efforts of the back / winger, the gap was reduced to 17 units (65-82) eight minutes later. But at the end of the quarter, back to square one: Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart and their gang had rebuilt their initial lead (71-96).

He must do everything we need, from A to Z “Begins by formulating Erik Spoelstra, questioned after the match on his feelings on seeing his best player take control of his attack at this point. “ But we are facing a very good defense.”he continues, “so we have to do things with a lot of detail. They can suffocate us, just like we can suffocate teams. »

Boston actually delivered a solid defensive performance by limiting Miami’s offense to 102 points scored, compared to 118 in Game 1, with 44% on shots.

What we especially remember is the distribution of these points. If Boston was able to rely on a quartet of players at 19 points or more, Jimmy Butler (29 points at 11/18 on shots) seemed much more isolated offensively with three lieutenants at around ten points. Witness this attempt at revolt in the third quarter.

“I have to find my teammates”

If I’m being completely honest, I think I need to do better to involve others.”he also judges. “I have to find that happy medium, that border between when you have to be aggressive and when you have to make sure I open shots for the others. Basically gotta do Kyle’s job (Lowry) and making sure guys are in areas where they can be comfortable and have the most success. »

In the absence of the former Raptors point guard, the back is indeed, with Tyler Herro, the main ball carrier, and therefore potential creator, of the team. Jimmy Butler considers it his responsibility to involve others. ” I don’t think it’s Spo or Bam’s fault (Adebayo). It’s my job, because I have the ball a lot, to make sure everyone is comfortable and gets the shots they need. »

The involvement of his pivot is also one of the challenges of this series, and even since the start of the playoffs where he is less in demand in attack. After 10 points at 3/4 on shots in the first round, the Olympic champion has just continued with a match at 6 points and 3/6 on shots.

His teammate at the back believes he was ” a bit selfish offensively. I have to look to find my teammates. They’ve been there for me all year and I have to go back to that because when they score, when they’re aggressive, we’re a much better team. »
