Jimmy Butler joins Micheal Jordan, LeBron James, Shaquille O’Neal group with 10 consecutive playoff games with 25+ points, fuelling Heat’s win vs Knicks

Jimmy Butler continues his remarkable playoff run as he joined an elite group of NBA superstars with his 10th consecutive playoff game scoring 25 points or more. The list includes the likes of Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant, showcasing just how impressive Butler’s recent performances have been.

Butler’s latest display helped the Miami Heat to a dominant 109-101 victory over the New York Knicks in Game 4 of their second-round playoff series. The win gives Miami a commanding 3-1 lead in the series, putting them one step closer to reaching the Eastern Conference Finals for the third time in four years.

Butler was instrumental in the win, putting up 27 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in a brilliant two-way display. But it was his scoring prowess that stood out, as he scored his 25th point with over six minutes remaining in the third quarter, securing his place in the exclusive club of playoff performers.

Butler’s achievement is all the more impressive given the caliber of his company on the list. He has firmly established himself as one of the league’s premier players, especially in the playoffs, where he has consistently delivered clutch performances for the Heat.

But it wasn’t just Butler who shone in the victory over the Knicks. Bam Adebayo also impressed, putting up a double-double of 23 points and 13 rebounds. Adebayo’s dominant performance in the first half set the tone for the Heat’s win, as he overwhelmed New York’s frontcourt with his footwork and touch around the rim.

With Butler and Adebayo leading the way, the Heat proved too much for the Knicks to handle, frustrating them with their defense and out-rebounding them on the boards. The win puts Miami in a commanding position in the series, with the chance to close out the Knicks in Game 5 and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals once again.

The Miami Heat defeated the New York Knicks 109-101 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday, taking a commanding 3-1 series lead. Despite a slow start, the Heat relied on their strong shooting and aggressive rebounding to secure the win.
