This magical run for the Miami Heat doesn't look like it's going to be ending in the near future. After taking down the Bucks, Miami followed that up by stunning the New York Knicks in the playoffs. Who saw that coming?

Now, the Heat are taking on the Boston Celtics, a team heavily favored, in the Eastern Conference Finals. Well, Game 1 arrived on Wednesday night and Miami posted a thrilling victory on the road. Jimmy Butler keeps on silencing his haters too.

It feels like a trip to the NBA Finals could be on the way for this squad. If that happens, Butler will surely be a major reason why.
