Jimmy Butler leads Heat to 123-116 win over Celtics in Game 1

Jimmy Butler was the best player on the court tonight finishing the game with 35 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, and an eye popping 6 steals. When the going got tough for the Celtics they inexplicably didn't go to Jayson Tatum, coming off his 51 point Game 7. Then when Boston finally started going to Tatum, the Heat swarmed him defensively and Tatum picked uo multiple turnovers.

Jaylen Brown also got hurt again and we'll see if his hand injury effects his shooting ballhandling in the coming games. The 8th seeded Miami Heat are very well coached and Jimmy Butler has that "dog in him" that everyone talks about when looking for a player to lead you deep in the playoffs.
