Video: Jimmy Butler, Trae Young get into it
The Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat began their first-round playoff series on Sunday, and it did not take long before things got a bit chippy.
Jimmy Butler and Trae Young had to be separated by teammates and officials midway through the first quarter. Young committed a foul on Butler after Butler stole a pass, and the Heat star did not appreciate it. He got into Young’s face, which sent the fans at FXT Arena into a frenzy.

The Heat are the top seed in the Eastern Conference and heavily favored against the No. 8-seed Hawks. Young is the one player who can make things interesting, and he looks like he is up to the challenge.
