After falling down 2-0 to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Miami Heat entered Sunday's NBA Finals Game 3 without Bam Adebayo (neck) and Goran Dragic (foot), two starters who were injured in Game 1. Despite the injuries and two-game deficit, coach Erik Spoelstra and All-Star Jimmy Butler maintained that the Heat weren't done yet.
Miami topped Los Angeles 115-104 to bring the series to 2-1. Butler posted a 40-point triple-double to keep his team from falling down 3-0, and fellow NBA players took notice.
