MIAMI, FL – Trae Young figured the game was over.

Turns out, Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat were just getting started — on one of the craziest stat nights in team history.

Duncan Robinson tied a franchise record with 10 3-pointers, Butler and Bam Adebayo each had triple-doubles and the Heat went on a wild late flurry to beat the Atlanta Hawks 135-121 in overtime on Tuesday night.

The Heat were down by six with 59 seconds left in regulation, the moment when Young took a celebratory walk back to the Atlanta bench for a timeout — with Butler hearing him shout, “It’s over.”

Miami scored the next 22 points, the last six of regulation and then the first 16 of overtime to improve to 18-6 overall and 11-0 at home.

“I don’t think anybody really thought the Heat were relevant,” Adebayo said. “We’re making people watch us.”

Kendrick Nunn scored a career-high 36 points, one off the Heat rookie single-game record. Robinson scored 34, a career high. Adebayo finished with a career-high 30 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. Butler had 20 points, a career-high 18 rebounds and 10 assists.

And afterward, Butler couldn’t resist a little jab at Young on Instagram — a post that other NBA players like Draymond Green and Klay Thompson quickly noticed.
