Heat’s Jimmy Butler takes to Instagram to deliver message to Pacers’ TJ Warren
Jimmy Butler had a solid performance as the Miami Heat took down the Indiana Pacers, 122-108. It was a good display of team basketball for the Heat in spite of the slight fight between Butler and TJ Warren. In fact, Butler even went so far as to call Warren out on social media and hype fans up for their next meeting in March.
Butler, who finished the night with 14 points, six rebounds, seven assists, and two steals, posted an image on his Instagram account that will surely make Heat fans laugh and Warren even more furious.
Captured in the image Jimmy Butler shared was the schedule of games the Heat will be playing in March. It showcased games against the Chicago Bulls, and the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the center of all attention was the March 20 rematch between the Heat and the Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. He made sure Warren would see it as he put circles around the schedule.
Butler captioned the image with another fierce taunt. It’s a clap that Warren could do nothing about.
“Don’t be mad you can’t guard me,” Butler told Warren after tagging him on the post. “We will see what you [are] about in March.”
Warren was limited by Butler on both ends of the floor. He wasn’t able to defend him whenever the two-way forward took his shots. Meanwhile, he wasn’t able to score or contribute much to the game as Butler proved to be quite a capable defender. He finished with only three points, four rebounds, and an assist to his name.
Heat fans are probably bookmarking March 20 as these two men will make the game a lot more entertaining than it should be.
