SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Once Jimmy Butler came back, Miami’s longest losing streak of the season was gone.
Butler had 21 points and 10 rebounds in his return to the lineup and the Heat won in Andre Iguodala’s first game back in the Bay Area, thumping the Golden State Warriors 113-101 on Monday night.
“We look like a totally different team when our max player is out there.” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said of Butler. “He makes it look a little bit smoother, a little bit more settled with our offense. The ball gets to the right places.
