Jimmy Butler criticized the Miami Heat’s inconsistency and lack of humility following their 119-111 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
“We don’t deserve to win. Whenever we take these teams lightly, we don’t do what we’re supposed to do on the defensive end, we just look bad, as a whole, as a group, as a unit. It’s not good basketball,” said Butler following the loss.
The team is currently on a three-game losing streak.
“It’s on us to figure it out. I can’t tell you which way we’re going to go. I don’t know what team is going to show up on any given night,” added Butler.
Butler lead the team with 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists.
The guard also implored Bam Adebayo to be more aggressive on offense.
“I want Bam to attack the rim, because nobody can stay in front of him. Go. You’re going to get fouled or you’re going to dunk on somebody … play bully ball. I like bully ball.”
