Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat are competing in the NBA Finals 2020. The Western Conference Champion Lakers were 2-0 ahead before going to the Game 3 with comfortable wins, however, Game 3 was completely different.
After two losses in the finals, the Heat made an impressive comeback on Sunday night- thanks to an incredible performance from Jimmy Butler. Butler scored 40 points with a triple-double, to defeat LeBron James and Co. by 115-104.
LeBron looked a little mad since the first quarter as the Lakers were left behind for the first time in the series in the initial quarter. He also went on to exchange words with Butler after the end of the 1st quarter when Heat were leading by 26-23. JR Smith tried to console LeBron with claps coming from the back while the referee escorted Butler away.

He later talked about the incident after the game and said:
“First of all, let’s not act like I’m just out here talking trash because I’m not LeBron said it to me at the end of the first. That’s what happened. I just said it to him in the fourth quarter.”
