It’s not a mystery why Antetokounmpo wasn’t happy to talk about Butler’s offensive exploits in the game.
The Heat All-Star scored a postseason career-high 40 points in Monday’s game. He also contributed four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block.
As for Antetokounmpo, he had a fairly middling game for his standards. He finished with a near triple-double of 18 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.
The Heat won the game, 115-104.
With Game 1 in the books, the Heat will look to remain undefeated in the postseason when they suit up for Game 2 on Wednesday.
If Butler continues to stay hot, the Heat could certainly shock the Bucks in a series upset.
