After the contest, All-Star Jimmy Butler made it clear that his team has bigger fish to fry.
Jimmy Butler said getting to the NBA's Final Four "means a lot. But that's not my goal. That's not my guys' goal. That's not the organization's goal. We want to win ‘it.' We want a championship and I think that's what we're focused on."

Few people outside of South Florida thought the Heat had any real chance of upsetting the Bucks, who had the league’s best record.
But Miami scored a surprising Game 1 win, then eeked out a victory in Game 2 to put Giannis Antetokounmpo’s squad in critical condition.
Butler was instrumental for the Heat, as he continually took over in crunch time to deliver the series triumph.
It’s sure to be a drama-filled offseason for the Bucks, as rumors about Antetokounmpo’s future start to swirl. Some even feel that the Greek Freak will be wearing a Heat uniform when next season commences.
