Butler produced 14 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals across 34 minutes during Thursday's 110-97 loss to Boston in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Butler was unable to get his team over the line Thursday, managing just 14 points in 34 minutes. Despite having been arguably the best player throughout the playoffs, Butler was bound for a subpar game at some point. The Heat still lead the series 3-2, but the Celtics now have the momentum heading back to Miami. Expect Butler to come out aggressively Saturday in hopes of avoiding a Game 7.
