Butler certainly earned the right to talk smack to the Lakers, as he had 40 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals and two blocked shots.
The Heat ran out to a sizable early lead and maintained it for most of the game en route to their 115-104 victory.
James helped the Lakers’ cause with 25 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and two blocks, but his eight turnovers ultimately sabotaged L.A.’s chances of going up 3-0 in the series.
Instead, the Heat are very much in this championship series.
