Jimmy Butler calls out Boston's Marcus Smart in postgame

Boston Celtics Marcus Smart tries to get a held ball with Chicago Bulls Jimmy Butler as Kelly Olynyk watches during the second half in Game 3 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series in Chicago Friday

Though he sometimes let his emotions get the best of him, Smart said he'd be on his best behavior and promises to keep his cool (as much as someone like Marcus Smart can) in Game 5.

The Boston Celtics emerged with a second consecutive road victory over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday to even the series at two games apiece.

Rajon Rondo took jumpers during Tuesday's practice, signalling he could return for the Chicago Bulls before the end of their series against the Boston Celtics.

"You heard him, he said 'I don't think Marcus Smart is about that life.' Last time I checked, if you're going to say something about somebody's life, you should know, right?" said Smart. Smart. I guess we'll really see who's about that life come tip off. I'm going to continue to dribble the ball the way I know how. He was in the weight room yesterday getting a good session in there.

That's the first, the last time too.

"It's just something that we're gonna have to get through", Green said.

Rondo injured his right thumb in Game 2. The series is now tied, 2-2. However, Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders says Griffin is expected to stay in Los Angeles.

"Like I said before, I ain't gotta talk about what I am about, I'll just show you. Like, 'Look, it's where he's from, but he doesn't want to play there.' It's nothing against the city, it's Blake has found an interesting and fulfilling life living in L.A".

Though Butler scored 33 points, dished out nine assists, and put both Thomas and Avery Bradley in foul trouble, the Bulls only made five 3-pointers and had their lowest offensive rebound total of the series.

Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks have already alienated one star, and if they're not careful they might do the same to another. "So, like I said, it ain't hard to find me". Off the court, Thomas acknowledges "mentally and emotionally I'm not here", but on the court he's again producing like the player Boston will need to be at his best if it hopes to dethrone the Cleveland Cavaliers as Eastern Conference champions. Green added 16 points in the first half of Game 4 (finishing with 18 overall) as Rozier complemented his impact with further energy and pace off the bench.
