Jimmy Butler on the team's state: I think I have to do a better job of getting everybody else involved, if I'm being brutally honest. I have to find that fine medium, that fine line in between when to be aggressive and when to make sure that I can get guys open.
Here's the prediction Thursday's game from Moses The Hamster. He picks the Celtics. Moses' record during the postseason is 8-4.
