Jimmy Butler scores 56 points, Miami Heat stun Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis did not speak post game

Greatness was witnessed at the newly named Kaseya Center in Downtown Miami.

Jimmy Butler had the game of his life, and the Miami Heat had a comeback for the ages.

Butler scored 56 points tying the 4th best scoring performance ever in an NBA playoff game. And the Heat roared back from 14 points down in the fourth quarter to stun the number one overall seed Milwaukee Bucks 119-114.

“I’m trying to win,” Butler said. “They told me to attack and make sure I don’t turn the ball over.”

The 56 points also became Butler’s career-high as well as the franchise playoff record.

The 14-point 4th quarter comeback became Miami’s most significant of the season.

Butler finished 19 of 28, 15 of 18 at the foul line and added nine rebounds.

Bucks need to win three straight to avoid elimination.

Bucks were outscored 41-25 in the fourth.

Game five is Wednesday at Milwaukee.
