  • Hey, spoke.

  • Hey, Rob.

  • It's good to hear from you, man.

  • Congrats, buddy.

  • Thank you.

  • I think we're gonna start there first.

  • You ready, Mark?

  • Yes.

  • Go ahead.

  • Tim, should we be surprised that you guys get down to in the finals?

  • And it's a guy from Marquette who just does crazy things.

  • He's surprised by that.

  • Look, how do you How else do you say it other than Jimmy Effin Butler?

  • Um, but this is what he wanted.

  • Uh, this is what we wanted.

  • Um, it's really hard to, um, analyze or described Jimmy until you actually feel him between the four lines, he's, ah, supreme elite competitors on DWI needed.

  • Obviously, this was this was a very desperate, urgent game, and and he was doing it on both ends of the court.

  • Just put his imprint attn.

  • Every important part of the game.

  • And, you know, he's in the top percentile of this entire association in terms of conditioning.

  • Um, then you saw Hey, just got stronger as the game went on.

  • Um, but in terms of, you know, you're saying Ah, Marquette guy.

  • You know, Duane swore to us he looked us patent dead in the eye and said, this is, uh, you know, this is your guy.

  • This is this is the next guy.

  • Um, but it z it's also just, you know, one solar.

  • We also have perspective that we're not gonna get carried away with this and to follow up.

  • Erica e mean double digit leads me nothing at a three point era now, obviously, but you guys have had a couple slip away, and then Rondo's way up, I think, earlier, early in the fourth put you guys down to at that point where you worried about how much you would have had left.

  • You are playing shorthanded and all that.

  • Were you worried that?

  • No, No, Our guys are in great condition.

  • It's more about conquering those moments of truth during the game.

  • And this is where this opponent is?

  • Probably not.

  • Probably.

  • They are better than anybody in the league.

  • Get that.

  • You have LeBron and Rondo controlling and orchestrating the important parts of the game on.

  • We're losing those battles, you know, big in the first two games.

  • Um, So you're not expecting to be easy like a 10 12 point lead?

  • You know, that's that's gonna go like that but you have to be able to respond to it and do it appropriate that you have to do with intensity.

  • But you have to do it with the mind toe, get what we're trying to do.

  • It can't just be running around a Zhar does.

  • You can You have to have a really thought behind it in a discipline and poise.

  • Um, and we showed.

  • Showed that better tonight, obviously.

  • Then the first two games Dan here in the front spo the Lakers turn it over, I think, like 10 times in the first quarter or something like that, You guys only lead by three.

  • Attn.

  • That moment did you feel like there was an opportunity there that we didn't take full advantage of it?

  • And then, I guess, secondly, Jimmy's just physical toughness that the fouls he took late?

  • Yeah, you was stealing minutes on the ground, you know?

  • Hey, wasn't he got hit down there, but then he knows how to do that.

  • You know the answer?

  • Your first question.

  • No, you're not expecting it to be easy.

  • You have to do whatever is necessary.

  • It's a 48 minute game for a reason.

  • You have to be able to compete at a high level on.

  • There's gonna be a lot of ups and downs during the course of it.

  • I liked it and I wanted I really wanted to see how we're going to respond.

  • We've been in those moments in game games one and two of their too fleeting.

  • We didn't respond to that well enough.

  • This is elite competition both ways.

  • Um, when we respond to do it, uh, better tonight on did in terms of the physicality, you know, this is what Jimmy, why he prepares the way he does that is so uncommon year round is to be ableto take on that physicality to make those plays, to be able to draw fouls and take contact and and get up and be able to make those free throws.

  • Hey, just was, you know, it's so settling when you have that type of guy in a really competitive game like this, it allows your other guys and we're playing young guys.

  • They could just be who they are.

  • They don't have toe worry about too much pressure or context.

  • They could just be who they are when you have, um, somebody like that that takes on all the pressure for them.

  • Next question is from Levine Gangland from the Philippines.

  • Hey, buh high.

  • Why Coach?

  • You had a lot of players.

  • You coach over the years who are great.

  • You know, LeBron is being the Wade Shack.

  • Um, so also, just in terms of what Jimmy today, guarding LeBron in one end and taking over the offense and the other end, Where would you rank this in terms of some of the best individual performance as you've seen throughout your coaching career?

  • Well, first Malibu High, Salama Po, Um And then secondly, out of all due respect, I'm not going to rank it.

  • Um, it's one win.

  • Jimmy understands this, that it's going to take whatever is necessary everything over the top and beyond.

  • Um, this is not about comparing, uh, to anybody else in the history.

  • And that's not all due respect.

  • It's about what we're trying to get accomplished in this locker room.

  • We have a very committed group, but to this, we have incredible respect for this opponent way.

  • Have to figure this out.

  • Um, if we're not on top of our game, uh, you know, we saw what it could look like, you know, And in the previous two games.

  • Um, but this is why we way, uh, pursued Jimmy, you know so aggressively.

  • Uh, we just felt all across the board there was an alignment that we're sharing the same competitive values for right or wrong, and we don't.

  • It doesn't matter what everybody else thinks it's were aligned on that on your able to build a culture from that and and develop a team around him.

  • Next question.

  • Mark Schwarz, ESPN.

  • Eric.

  • Even the greatest players in the history of sports sometimes come up short when their team needs them the most.

  • The way you needed Jimmy in this game tonight.

  • What is it about Jimmy that makes him able to produce his greatest game ever in his most desperate game ever?

  • Well, I think there's a lot of genuine care and love in this locker room.

  • You guys really want to do this for each other?

  • Um, our hearts are broken, you know about going and bam, you know, missing these games because there's there's sincere love for them and Jimmy takes that to heart.

  • You guys know that they have to doom or until or if those guys come back.

  • Um, but, you know, this is what competitions all about.

  • You have to have you have toe raise your game.

  • And like I said, many times, you just can't put in analytic or a number or an evaluation to Jimmy Butler in the conventional way.

  • Uh, he is an elite top percent.

  • Our competitors.

  • Andi, this is top percentile competition that we're facing Ondas bringing out a different level.

  • All right.

  • Next question is Vincent will coach when you know that Jimmy's gonna play 40 plus minutes and he's gonna defend LeBron.

  • What do you do from a coaching standpoint?

  • Toe by him, time on the floor so he can have a little bit of energy left to draw those files and not be completely worn down.

  • To be honest, we can't afford that.

  • That's why he puts in the work that he does.

  • That's why hey, does three insane things year round off season.

  • To put himself in a position like this to be able to handle all of this, Uh, no one could have predicted that we would have.

  • You know, some of our main guys out in the you'd have to play 45 minutes a game.

  • But it's whatever is necessary at this point, and he's willing to take on that responsibility.

  • We're not trying to save him or try to steal in a couple minutes here or there, but we're way past that now.

  • Mallika.

  • So you said a lot that your defense should be.

  • What's feeding your offense?

  • Can you just describe what Jae Crowder did for you on the defensive end?

  • Yeah, it za hardest challenge of his career.

  • Right now, he's facing an M V P type talent.

  • Um, they can't do it on his own.

  • There's gonna have to be a five man defense.

  • Anything that I say right now, it's gonna be a whole lot easier said than done.

  • You just have to be a competitors and throw yourself out there, be vulnerable to the competition.

  • He's our type of guy in terms of competitive spirit.

  • Um, you know, But again, it's one game.

  • We know there will be response, and we have to be ready for that.

  • We're trying to get something accomplished right here, so we know it's gonna be tough.

  • Alright.

  • The last question for Coach Spoelstra is David Aldridge.

  • Hey, David, Hey.

  • Hey, Are there big too big?

  • Passing The first two games really hurt you guys.

  • A different spots.

  • So what did you do to try Thio?

  • Take some of that away tonight?

  • Yeah, you know, I don't know.

  • They're really good, you know?

  • So it's they're doing that against our man in the first game they're doing against the zone.

  • We try to bring a brother spirit, uh, tonight competitively, we are who we are in between those four lines.

  • It was good enough to get this win tonight.

  • But those guys, that's a great team and great players that you have thio to take on that challenge.
