Heat's Jimmy Butler hopes visit by Nets fires up his team

Jimmy Butler did his part on Friday night to try to send the Miami Heat home with a victory to cap their four-game trip.

But his 30 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists weren't enough as the Heat dropped their third game in a row, this time to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves.

And now Miami returns home Sunday against a much tougher opponent when it hosts the Brooklyn Nets.
