Heat trainer Erik Spoelstra on Jimmy Butler: “We still want to come to our game. We still want to bring Jimmy to his places where he can be effective for our team, ”said Heat trainer Erik Spoelstra after training on Sunday. “It changes the way you look. We’re going to try to do some things better so that we can get to our game and what we know more often. And they will try to do things to keep us from doing it. “
