Jimmy Butler Joins LeBron James and Paul George
The Miami Heat are not done yet.
Thanks to Jimmy Butler's monster performance on the road in Game 6, there will be a Game 7 back in Miami on Sunday.
Butler poured in 47 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4 steals, putting him in elite Conference Finals company.
Coming into this game, the only players in NBA history with at least 40 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals in a Conference Finals game were LeBron James and Paul George.
LeBron's performance came in his historic 2018 run, also against the Boston Celtics
while Paul George's big game happened just last postseason against the Phoenix Suns.
With his monster performance on Friday night, Butler joined those two as the only three players in NBA history with such a stat-line in a Conference Finals elimination game.
Teams with Game 7 at home are historically favored to win, which now places Miami at an advantage
While this is a Boston Celtics team that has proven the ability to win on the road
