FOX Sports News: “[Jimmy’s] gonna get on you probably more so in public places…it’s behind the scenes that he’ll put his arm around you and let you know that he actually cares about you.” @Duncan Robinson shares the real story behind his meeting with @Jimmy Butler after Game 2 of the NBA Finals pic.twitter.com/Bm1wIO65Go

The Lakers had been annoyed with what they felt were extra steps being afforded to Heat rookie sharpshooter Duncan Robinson when he received the ball coming off curl screens, league sources told Yahoo Sports. And with Robinson occasionally talking trash, that only increased the Lakers’ annoyance after he torched them for 26 points while draining seven triples in Game 5.
Storyline: Officiating Complaints
Duncan Robinson has received clips prior to each game of these NBA Finals. Before Game 1, Robinson there was the video compilation from his former teammates at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. Before Game 2, there was one from teammates at Division III Williams College, where he played a season before transferring to Michigan. The Wolverines handled the Game 3 clip, which included former coach John Beilein. For Game 4, the messages came from the Middlesex Magic, Robinson’s old Boston-area AAU team. And prior to Game 5 on Friday night, with the Heat trailing the Lakers 3-1, the video montage was all family.
“I still have very intense pinch-me moments where I honestly can’t believe it’s all happening,” said Robinson’s sister, Marta. “But then on the other end of it, I totally believe it, because that’s Duncan.” Robinson’s mother Elisabeth traveled to Orlando last week and is in the NBA’s secondary bubble, which essentially means she can sit in the stands but is not allowed to come in contact with the players. So even though she talks to her son twice a day, she cannot even hug him. She said that it’s dark where she sits, so he cannot even see her, but he knows she’s there.
“That was a tough series, because we’re all Celtics fans,” Elisabeth said. “Even today watching [Rajon] Rondo, I just loved him on the Celtics. I don’t like him so much now, but I loved him then. So it’s been a little tricky, but everyone in the community is really supportive. They said they’re rooting for the Celtics, but they’re really rooting for Duncan.”
