Video: Jimmy Butler and Trae Young get into a dust-up during Game 1'
1 Min Read

Game 1 of the first-round series between the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks is underway.

It did not take long for things to get chippy, as stars Jimmy Butler and Trae Young got into it during the first quarter.

Butler was on his way to the basket when he got tangled up with Young in the open court. The two shared some words and were later each assessed with a technical foul.

The Hawks reached the playoffs after winning two games in the play-in tournament. Miami finished first in the Eastern Conference during the regular season.

It will surely be an exciting series, as Atlanta reached the Eastern Conference Finals last season. Miami, on the other hand, reached the NBA Finals in 2020 and will look to make a return this year.
