Video shows what Udonis Haslem said to Jimmy Butler during heated exchange

Erik Spoelstra talks with Jimmy Butler

Things got heated on the Miami Heat bench Wednesday night during the team’s 118-104 loss to the Golden State Warriors.

The game was tied at the half, but then the Warriors went on a 19-0 run to start the third quarter. Miami had to take a timeout during the run, and that’s when things got heated on the bench. Jimmy Butler seemed to get upset with coach Erik Spoelstra. Udonis Haslem then stepped in to challenge Butler.

A different angle reveals what was said during the exchange.

“What, do you think I’m going to f—ing fight you?” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said to Butler.

Haslem then told Butler he would beat the star’s rear.

That was intense.

Butler has always been known as a strong personality who is demanding. But what we now know too is that Spoelstra doesn’t take a lot of nonsense. We already knew that Haslem didn’t.

The Heat all downplayed the incident after the game, saying this isn’t much different from how they behave during practice.
