Bam Adebayo on Jimmy Butler and Udonis Haslem’s verbal confrontation:

“This is us in practice…In practice, we get like that to that point where like it looks like we want to fight each other when we get that mad, but it’s just the competitive nature that we have on this team.” –

Bam Adebayo on the Jimmy Butler, Udonis Haslem disagreement.

“We got passionate players on this team and coaches included. We’re going to have those moments when things aren’t going right, and we get frustrated and explode because we’re so passionate and want to win that bad.” –

PJ Tucker said the Jimmy Butler and Udonis Haslem argument is behind them already.

“It’s over. You said what you had to say. I said what I had to say. Alright cool, let’s play basketball. We’re playing basketball man.” –

Here’s the play that prompts Erik Spoelstra’s timeout. Jimmy Butler lazily closes out and gives Jordan Poole an open (although still tough) shot at the end of the shot clock. Still unclear if this had anything to do with the bench argument.

There was a game in March in 2016 where the Heat destroyed the Cavs and LeBron was cracking up with D Wade at halftime. Cleveland went on to win it all. Watching Jimmy Butler and Erik Spoelstra get into it while Heat get boat-raced by half Warriors reminds me of that. –

Jimmy Butler has always been the same dude. We glorified him for the stunt he pulled in Minnesota, but he was a punk then too. What’s the narrative going to be this time. Also, nothing gives more pleasure than seeing
#HeatCulture being infiltrated by one of its own. –

I know a lot has been made about Udonis Haslem & Jimmy Butler jawing at each other & being restrained but Erik Spoelstra was the most heated off them all. When Spo tossed his clipboard on the floor & papers started flying, it was on #HeatCulture

So, to recap. Tied 50-50 at halftime. Warriors 19-0 run to 69-50. Then Haslem and Butler go at it. Now Heat within 81-80 going into fourth. Bananas. –

Haslem clearly seething. Has remained in seat on end of bench as Heat rally. –

Haslem on outside of Heat timeout huddle this time. Markieff Morris instead taking over huddle before Spoelstra enters. –

a players only huddle during the timeout after Butler and Haslem’s argument. Heat coaches not even meeting, just giving them a chance to speak. Haslem and Butler did not talk to each other, though.

Now this is an interesting lineup

Jimmy Butler with Duncan/Strus and Morris/Tucker

Gives Jimmy the space, but is there enough creation? –

Anthony Chiang @

Among the 274 players who entered today with at least 90 three-pointers attempted, Jimmy Butler ranked last with a 18.5 three-point percentage.

Butler is 2 of 2 tonight. Heat has opened 5 of 8 on threes. –

“I need all the different things that I compete in just to level me out,” Jimmy Butler said. “Too much of any good thing is always a bad thing. I live by that. So, I try to take it piece by piece, day by day, realizing that I do keep the main thing the main thing — that is basketball. I do want to win a championship. We all know that. I do want to be healthy. We all know that.
But if I’m too locked in, I forget about everything else, everybody else. And I don’t want to do that.” -via
