Jimmy Butler takes subtle shot at Bucks after winning game one.

Jimmy Butler led the Miami Heat in a big game one upset over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Heat earned the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference after a win-or-go-home matchup with the Chicago Bulls. Coming off a short rest, the Heat handled the Bucks in game one, 130-117. However, the Bucks were without superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo for most of the game. Giannis suffered a back injury during a hard fall to the floor.

But even without Giannis, the Bucks should be the cream of the crop as the one seed. However, the Heat proved that without their superstar, Milwaukee can be beaten. Butler led the way for the Heat in both points and assists. The former Marquette star finished the game with 35 points and 11 assists. An incredible performance by a player whose availability was uncertain before the team's matchup with Chicago. Now, Butler is letting everyone know where his sights are set with his latest Instagram story.

Jimmy Butler Having Fun With The Bucks

Butler seems to be having a little fun with the Heat's first-round opponent. The Miami forward doesn't seem to fear the dear. Obviously, a lot of the aura of the team changes if Giannis is suffering a severe injury. The Heat have a huge opportunity to go up 2-0 on the Bucks this Wednesday. However, an eight-seed beating a one is seemingly impossible. But it has been done before. As an eight seed, the Golden State Warriors took down the Dallas Mavericks. So the feat can be completed.
