The Miami Heat went into Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals with the weight of the world on their shoulders. Few thought they could win.

No one thought that there would be a Game 7 on Sunday afternoon. That includes one of the dudes on the team that is set to face whichever team can make it out of this hard-fought Eastern Conference Finals series.

After helping his team advance to the NBA Finals on Thursday night, Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors was asked who he had in the Eastern Conference Finals. While that question is self-explanatory, the ever so vocal Green took things a step further.

He would say who he believed they’d be facing. Check it out for yourself.

Well, the Miami Heat and Jimmy Butler obviously had other plans.

The Miami Heat have now forced a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals. Draymond Green hates to hear that though, after picking Boston before Game 6.

On the back of an otherworldly performance in Game 6 and two lackluster games before that one, Butler would use his 47 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists to propel his team to victory and to force a Game 7 winner take all matchup.

While the game itself was a slugfest, full of drama, and a performance that will forever be talked about in NBA Playoff history, one of the bigger stories of the night had something to do with Green’s words.

After the game was final, the Miami Heat’s captain and the OG, Udonis Haslem, had something to say. Here was his message.

Haslem wasn’t alone though. In a postgame interview with Scott Van Pelt Of ESPN, P.J. Tucker echoed similar sentiments.

This was something that you could have seen coming though. To a group of guys like these Miami Heat and just the way the Heat operate, in general, this was always something that they would take, align themselves upon, and use it to fuel their intensity.

It worked for Game 6 and has a chance to keep on energizing them. The real treat would be to see Draymond’s Warriors against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals though.

One more win—and that wish becomes a reality. Again, thanks Dray!
