Anthony Davis was the best player on the court when he went head-to-head with Giannis Antetokounmpo, while the Celtics suffered a rare loss.
Bam Adebayo scored 28 points, Tyler Herro had 26 and the Miami Heat completed a split of two games in Boston, beating the Celtics 120-116 on Friday night after Jaylen Brown banked in a long 3-pointer to force overtime. Heat leading scorer Jimmy Butler returned to the lineup and had 25 points in 36 minutes after missing the previous seven games with a sore right knee. “Obviously having JB back is big time for us,” Herro said.
Jimmy Butler is expected to return to the Miami Heat lineup on Friday, but can he alone cure what ails them?
