Celtics vs Heat. Game 7. What are the biggest questions going into the winner-takes-all matchup? Who will reach the NBA Finals? We’ve got you covered.

Three questions for the heat

Which Jimmy Butler will show up?

In Games 3–5, Jimmy Butler averaged 27 points, missed half of Game 3 with a knee injury, and returned in Games 4 and 5 to be just a shell of himself heat Losses. In Game 6, Butler put on what was arguably his best performance of his career, recording 47 points, along with nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals. For Miami in Game 7, it might not be easier than getting a great Butler game versus a mediocre one. His two 40-point attempts in that series coincided with the Heat’s two most impressive wins. The common thread in these games was elite shooting and getting to the free throw line. In Games 1 and 6, Butler went to the line a total of 29 times. In Games 2–5, Butler attempted only 14 free throws, including none in Game 4.
