Jimmy Butler gets the win on this one — and not just because the Heat blew out the Pacers in Indiana.

Butler and the Pacers’ T.J. Warren were barking at each other and building up to something all game, and this is the play where it boiled over.

The referees reviewed this and it was left as a common foul.

Soon after, they were matched up again and Warren drew the offensive foul on Butler — then taunted him. That got Warren a technical and ejected.

Butler blew Warren kisses.

Warren reacted to Butler’s kisses in a way that’s going to cost him money, because a fine from the league is coming.

After the game, Butler ripped Warren, dropping an F-bomb as an adjective to emphasize his point.

It didn’t matter much in the end on the court; this was a blowout with Miami winning 122-108. Tyler Herro had 19 points off the bench, Bam Adebayo added 18 for Miami in the win.
