NBA playoffs: Jimmy Butler remains confident for Game 7

With less than a second shy of their second NBA Finals appearance in four seasons, Miami Heat players and fans were shocked after Boston Celtics’ Derrick White landed a pitch at the bell in Game No. 6.

Thanks to this game, the Celtics won the game 104-103 to come back from behind in the series and force the holding of an ultimate game. A win in Game 7 would make Boston the first NBA team to overturn a 0-3 deficit in a series.

Despite the emotions following the loss, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra and star player Jimmy Butler were confident they could still find a way to win the biggest game of the season on Monday night.

Spoelstra called the latest streak a “shame”, but says he has no regrets.

“That’s how the season was played out. That’s all one series we have right now. Today, I can’t tell you how it will end, but we will give it our all,” he said after Saturday’s game.

Butler, who scored three points on free throws with just three seconds left on the clock, remains confident for Game 7 in Boston despite losing the last three games.

“That’s basketball. It is very interesting even for us players. We were in the same position last season, we can do it,” added Butler, who scored 24 points on Saturday.

The Heat locker room after the game was in complete silence, before guard Gabe Vincent put Ed Sheeran’s “Life Goes On” into the amplifiers.

The ultimate conference final game will be played Monday night at TD Garden in Boston.
