The Miami Heat have recently got blown out by the Boston Celtics in Game 2. Despite the fact that they had a 10-point lead in the first quarter, they ended up down by 25 at halftime, and never ended up recovering.

Jimmy Butler has recently delivered his frank reaction to the loss, claiming that he doesn't "like to move on" from this loss, because he feels as though "it has to hurt". Butler pointed out that the Celtics "tried to embarrass" the Heat, and succeeded in doing so.

I don’t like to move on from this. Because it has to hurt. They tried to embarrass us, they did embarrass us.

They made shots that they missed the last game. It’s gonna be hard to beat anybody when they shoot 50 percent from the field and 50 percent from three. They were more physical overall and the got one on the road.”

There is no doubt that the Boston Celtics succeeded in bouncing back from Game 1, where they lost due to a 41-point performance from Jimmy Butler. The Miami Heat will now have to win a game in Boston, which is a tough task. Hopefully, the pain of this loss will fuel the Miami Heat to deliver a better performance in Game 3.

A lot of people are favoring the Boston Celtics to win the series, but the Miami Heat are still in it despite this blowout loss. They are still a well-coached and tough defensive team, and they could potentially pull it out if they make it difficult for the Celtics stars on the offensive end.

It remains to be seen if the Miami Heat are able to bounce back. Under Jimmy Butler's leadership, one would expect them to do so, and we'll see if we get another Jimmy Butler masterclass in Game 3.
