Steve Covino:  “(Jimmy Butler) was balling. He’s the guy who kept Miami in the game and even the best of us get caught up in the moment. But all Butler had to do is look at the clock, maybe hold for the last game tying shot...I just feel like Butler was trying to live out the fantasy instead of using his head for a second.”

With Steve Covino and Rich Davis filling in for Doug Gottlieb, the guys discuss the Heat coming up short against the Celtics, despite Jimmy Butler’s best effort to will his team to win. The guys feel like Butler is deserved of the Eastern Conference Finals MVP award, but needed to learn how to live in the moment and make a better decision in the waning seconds of the game.
