Veteran point guard Goran Dragic shared an Instagram post dedicated to the team win. However, he clearly wanted to draw attention to Butler as well.
Undoubtedly, what matters most is the Miami got the win in the heated road game.
The Heat dominated for much of the game on their way to a convincing 122-108 victory. This is not only impressive because the Heat have struggled at times on the road this season, but also because the Pacers are considered to be a clear playoff team.
Butler getting the best of Warren in the mental aspect of the game was only icing on the cake.
So far this season, Miami has won both of its games against Indiana. The two teams won’t face off again until March 20.
