Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler has given the Boston Celtics fits throughout the Eastern Conference Finals. He did so again in Sunday’s Game 3 matchup and had some fun at the Celtics’ expense in the process.

Butler has notably had some issues with Celtics forward Grant Williams throughout the series. The Celtics role player was criticized by some fans for “poking the bear” in Game 2 of the series.

They got into it again after Butler made an and-1 layup over him in the second quarter of Sunday’s matchup. After falling to the floor Butler proceeded to point at Williams.

Butler didn’t stop there in his hilarious mission to completely demoralize the Celtics. He seemingly remembered a taunt that Celtics forward Al Horford did earlier in the series. Butler mimicked it while staring him down after the Heat were up 27 points on a three-point make by his teammate Gabe Vincent.

It seems like Butler and the Heat are certainly on their way to a series win over Boston, winning this game in a 128-102 blowout to take a 3-0 series lead.

Many around the NBA world loved Butler’s pettiness in this game and laughed at his gestures.

It’s bad enough that both Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are struggling immensely in this series. Now Butler seems to know that he is facing a team that has totally checked out

The Heat will have their chance to finish this series once and for all on their home court in Tuesday night’s Game 4 matchup.
