Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler had all the smoke for Boston Celtics players Al Horford and Grant Williams on Sunday night as they dominated Game 3, 128-102.
Butler was on fire again and had Williams’ business in the second quarter. Butler drove to Williams’ rim and popped a faded shot into the basket. While his back was turned, he pointed directly at Williams, who had nothing to say other than let out a huge, frustrated sigh.

However, Butler didn’t finish as he targeted Horford next.
Butler put the Heat up by 23 points and mirrored Horford from Game 1, when he dropped to one knee and made a «T» shape with his hands to indicate the other team needed a timeout.
He finished with 16 points, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals. He was 5-for-13 from the field.
The Heat are one win away from an NBA Finals appearance.
