The Miami Heat came out in Game 4 of their opening-round NBA Playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks and proceeded to do what they had done in the first game of the series. Yes, they dominated them, again.

That wasn’t the Heat’s only repeat offense on the night though. Well, that wasn’t the only repeat offense by a specific Heat player.

Just like he had in Game 2 of this series, going for 45 points, five rebounds, and five assists with no turnovers or fouls, Jimmy Butler did it all over again in Game 4. Finishing that contest with 36 points, 10 rebounds, and fours assists with no turnovers and just one foul, Jimmy would continue the brilliance he’s put on display throughout the playoffs thus far.

With all of the repeat actions though, there was something that came in as a first for the Miami Heat. Well, that doesn’t just go for this series either.

The Miami Heat have dominated their first-round series over Atlanta, for the most part. They have done so by playing their brand of careful and caring ball.

In fact, the Heat made history. Franchise history.

Finishing the contest with seven turnovers in total and while Atlanta finished with more than twice that amount at 15, the Miami Heat wouldn’t have a single solitary giveaway in the first 24 minutes of action.

As noted by Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald, even without their starting signal-caller, their number one quarterback, and their starting point guard in Kyle Lowry, the Miami Heat had a flawless first half of play with no turnovers. That’s quite impressive and so much so, that it’s their first-ever such playoff half in Miami Heat history.

However, this is the Heat, so it, kind of, makes sense. If there is a team that’s going to mind the minor details, cross all of their t’s dot their i’s, come out flawless at the little things, it would be these Miami Heat.

Now, if Jimmy Butler has any more of this left in him, which you can be sure he does, they won’t have any problems with the rest of this series anyway. However, if they can be as mistake-free as they were in Game 4, this series won’t be the only one that they might not have problems with.

And you just love to see it!
