The Eastern Conference semifinals between the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers have taken a huge twist after Game 3 and 4. Erik Spoelstra‘s men won the first two games at home, but the Sixers bounced back in Philly.
What happened in between? Well, to begin with, Joel Embiid‘s return has certainly lifted Doc Rivers‘ men. On top of that, James Harden has also stepped up his game to help his team make things even.
However, the Heat also need to look at themselves as they weren’t the same team that started this series with two statement wins. Jimmy Butler knows that, but he’s convinced that his team should follow the path that took them here.
Jimmy Butler confident that Heat will get back on track
“Every shot that we shoot we think it’s going in,” Butler said postgame, via HoopsHype. “We’re gonna take the same shots next game, and they’re gonna fall because that’s the way we’ve been playing all year long. We’re not scared of missing shots.”
Even though they failed to put the series away earlier, there’s still a lot to be played for and Miami can still get back on track. There’s a reason why they finished first in the East, so maybe they just need to believe in the game plan instead of entering panick mode.
