After a heroic comeback into the playoffs by the Boston Celtics, Butler, and his team managed to get the required win. After the first three playoff games, the Heat were seemingly cruising their way into the NBA final. However, with just one more win required, Butler’s Heat somehow couldn’t manage to produce the result.

They went on to lose three straight games in a row. It then came down to the seventh and final game between them. Unsurprisingly, the Heat managed to hold their nerve and comfortably win the game with an 84 – 103 scoreline. In tribute to their dominating performance, the fans have flooded the internet with heartwarming messages.
