High career for the excellent Jimmy Butler! Miami Heat unnerves Trae Young again

The Miami Heat also won Game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks. In the 115:105 hit, Hawks star Trae Young scored better than he did at the start, but the point guard was clearly outclassed by Jimmy Butler.

In the end, the Heat had to shake a little, but it was enough, also because Miami had the best player on the field, Jimmy Butler. The forward had 45 points (15/25 FG, 11/12 FT, 5 assists), setting a postseason personal best. The 32-year-old has clearly surpassed his old record from Game 3 of the 2020 NBA Finals. “It was great basketball from a great basketball player. He is one of the best two-way players in the league,” said fellow player Kyle. Lowry in awe.

Jimmy Buckets also hit four triples in the process, one of which went through the trap in the final two minutes as the Heat star responded to a small outburst from Bogdan Bogdanovic. The Serbian left the game with stupid fouls in the first half, but the guard caught fire in the fourth. The sixth man scored 19 of his 29 points (12/18 FG, 5/10 three points) in the final section and thus secured a somewhat hair-raising finals.

In this Trae Young, on the other hand, remained low-key (just 3 points), and the Hawks All-Star made another partially unfortunate appearance. After just 8 points in Game 1, Young scored 25 points this time (10/20 FG, 2/10 trebles, 7 assists), but also allowed himself 10 turnovers for a rare double-double. “If the referees keep going this far, it’s going to be hard for us to get anything,” said the Hawks star, frustrated with the Heat’s physical play. De’Andre Hunter had 16 points.
