The Miami Heat surprised the NBA world by reaching the Finals, and they continue to surprise by taking the series to a Game 6. The Heat took down the Lakers 111-108 in a highly entertaining Game 5.

Jimmy Butler went toe-to-toe with LeBron James in a remarkable triple-double performance, with 35 points (11-of-19 from the field, 12-of-12 at the free-throw line), 12 rebounds, and 11 assists. The two-way star also had five steals on the defensive end in a game-high 47 minutes.

The Heat appeared to be in big trouble when they were down 2-0 and without starting point guard Goran Dragic, who suffered a torn plantar fascia in Game 1. But they’ve stunningly won two of the next three games. And at this point, we shouldn’t count them out to win two more.
