Jimmy Butler has message for rest of NBA

Jimmy Butler points on the court

Jimmy Butler is putting the rest of the NBA on notice.

Butler’s Miami Heat went through a rough stretch recently where they lost four in a row. But they broke that losing streak with a 123-100 win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.

After snapping the losing streak, Butler spoke with the media. He touted his team.

“I feel like that we put together this roster to win a championship,” he said. “It feels like a championship-caliber team. It does. We have lapses at times. We have a couple more days, games to figure that all out. But when we’re clicking, when we’re guarding, when we’re making shots, when we’re sharing the ball, I think we’re going to be really tough to beat.”

The Heat reached the NBA Finals during the pandemic-altered 2020 season. Last year they lost in the first round of the playoffs. But Miami enters a big game Wednesday against the Celtics holding the top spot in the East. They seem to have many of their communication issues worked out, which should be a positive sign moving forward. Butler certainly is confident about matters.
