Following Sunday’s 111-108 Sport 2 NBA Finals highway win vs. the Denver Nuggets, Miami Warmth star Jimmy Butler talked about what the crew’s protection did to trouble Nikola Jokic (5 turnovers/4 assists).
(through Home of Highlights):
Wes Goldberg: “It’s not usually that Jokic has extra turnovers than assists. What was the important thing defensively for you guys? What do you suppose bothered him?”
Butler: “Some ball strain. Getting again. Getting our palms on unfastened balls and simply difficult each cross, each shot. I imply, he’s a hell of a participant. He passes the ball so extremely properly. Clearly, he can rating the ball like he did tonight. However if you get the chance to show the ball over and get out into the open ground, I really feel as if we’ve got to do this, and we did a good job of that at present.”
