Jimmy Butler sends scary warning ahead of Miami Heat-Milwaukee Bucks matchup

Jimmy Butler Miami Heat

Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler gave a blunt response when asked about the upcoming first-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Heat enter the playoffs as the No. 6 seed in the East after finishing the regular season with a 40-32 record. They will begin a best-of-seven series against the No. 3 seed Bucks and reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday.

Butler led Miami to a surprise run to the NBA Finals during last season’s playoff bubble before falling to the champion Los Angeles Lakers in six games.

Butler is having a prolific year in his sophomore season with the Heat, averaging 21.5 points, 6.9 rebounds, 7.1 assists and a career-high 2.1 steals per game.

The Heat entered their last playoff run as the No. 5 seed and knocked off the Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals in five games.

Game 1 between the Heat and Bucks tips off at 2 p.m. EST on Saturday at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
