Jimmy Butler shared an incredible post on Instagram Wednesday after his Miami Heat’s big win over the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.

Butler did not play in his Heat’s 111-101 win at Boston because of a knee injury he suffered in Game 1. But he was the first player to talk up his team after the win.

Butler posted a photo of himself transposed onto Jaylen Brown’s body, along with the quote “Don’t let us get one.”

For those with short memories, that’s the exact same quote Brown gave a year ago when the Celtics were down 3-0 to the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Heat lost three straight in the series but wound up winning Game 7 to advance to the NBA Finals last year. They then lost to the Denver Nuggets in five games.

Now Butler is taking Brown’s words and throwing them right back at Boston.

The series heads to Miami for Game 3, with the Heat now having a chance to take the lead.
