1 Min Read

Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler torched the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their series on Monday night.

He also scored some huge buckets in the final minutes of the game.

When a reporter asked Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo about guarding Butler near the end of the game, the big man got a bit snippy in his response.

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.
