Butler calls struggling Heat 'soft,' urges 'bully ball'

MIAMI (AP) The Miami Heat are losing, and their highest-paid player isn't happy.

Jimmy Butler labeled the reigning Eastern Conference champions as "soft" after a loss in Minnesota on Friday night, Miami's third straight defeat and one that dropped the Heat to 28-28 with 16 games left in the regular season.

It was Miami's 10th loss in its last 16 games.
