Jimmy Butler posted 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a well-rounded performance on Friday evening but the Celtics won Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Butler was a catalyst – as usual – in this one but wasn't in top form, as he turned the ball over three times (twice down the stretch). To that point, he shot the ball just 11 times (5-for-11 FG) and did not make a 3-pointer, going 0-for-2 from deep for the second consecutive game. Butler added a steal and a block in the defeat. The Heat have seen their lead in the series shrink from 3-1 to 3-2.
