Heat forward Jimmy Butler on playing the Sixers in a game, especially on the road: "That's a question that I don't have the answer to. I wish we played better at home. I don't know. Whenever we get on the road, our back against the wall a little bit. I guess we get out of our comfort zone, and then we really start making things happen, so I'm actually kind of glad we're on the road."
