The Miami Heat will have Jimmy Butler back in their starting line-up when they face their NBA Finals rivals Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center on Friday night. Miami will also go for their first road win of the season after their loss to the season-opening loss to the Orlando Magic.
Miami avenged their massive blowout loss to the Milwaukee Bucks with a well-earned victory against Giannis Antetokounmpo and co. the following night. Neither game featured Jimmy Butler, but the Mavericks led by young sensation and MVP candidate Luka Doncic present different challenges as well.
