Jimmy Butler Not Phased By Blowout Loss To Celtics in Game 4

The Miami Heat so far have stunned fans and players alike by reaching the Eastern Conference Finals. They were a play-in team when the post-season started and are on the verge of reaching the NBA finals. Last night, they had an opportunity to sweep the Celtics at home but were instead blown out. However, Heat superstar, Jimmy Butler, is not phased by the loss.

Butler was asked in the post-game about the blowout loss and how to deal with it. He mentioned that the team will "listen to some music, we gon drink some beers." Clearly, the six-time all-star is not worried about the defeat. In fact, he added confidently that the team "will go get one on the road."

Butler has been the driving force behind a team that was simply not supposed to get out of the first round. Miami faced a Bucks team that was slated to make it to the conference finals at the very least. Now, in the rematch from the bubble, the Heat look to get their revenge against the number one-seeded Celtics in the conference finals. 

As for the Celtics, they have struggled this post-season to win at home for some odd reason. During the regular season, the team was an outstanding 32-9. In the playoffs, Boston so far has been 4-5 which is not a good sign for a team with their backs against the wall. It's also not encouraging that they lost to the Heat in their first two home games of the series which has led to a long climb ahead.

Nonetheless, Butler and the Heat will be on the road and try to close things out on Thursday night. Tatum and the Celtics will need another performance similar to the game four win to have a chance to get back into the series.
