Marcus Smart: Marcus Smart impacts game w/ limited scoring

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics looked down after losing the first two games of the series, but they've flipped the series on its head with two wins to level the scores. "But like I said, we gonna keep this Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics, not Marcus Smart vs. Jimmy Butler".

"I ain't got to talk about what I am about".

Never saw a series like that before.

"It couldn't have come at a worse time", Rondo said after Chicago's Game 3 loss to Boston.

That terrible, boring, cliched outlook certainly has served the Celtics well.

Marcus Smart isn't going to give too many quotes about Jimmy Butler, but he did have a notable reaction to his current Bulls opponent.

Game 5 is Wednesday night at TD Garden. Now, the series is tied, and they are heading back on the road to Boston. "So, like I said, it ain't hard to find me".

When Thomas heard about Hoiberg's complaint, he admits it was an unexpected rationale behind how Thomas torched his roster in Games 3 and 4.

Now, the Celtics have a second crack at making home-court advantage work. "Just watching him wince a little bit when the ball was coming to him makes me think it's a longshot. We should take pride playing in front of our fans and playing the right way".

The cast he had on his sprained right wrist was off on Monday, though he still had a splint for the thumb and wrist.

And though Thomas continues to grieve over the death of his sister, Chyna, he is once again driving his team. With their breakout performance against the Los Angeles Clippers in this year's National Basketball Association playoffs, the Gordon Hayward team is reportedly seeking All-Star players to sign by the offseason. And sometimes we need that. This resulted in the exit of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah to the New York Knicks. "We don't worry about what they're doing; we don't worry about what they're saying". So far in the series, point guard Isaiah Thomas has been called upon to be the pick-and-roll ball-handler in 41.3 percent of the possessions in which he is the primary ball-handler, good for 10.8 such occasions per game. "And playing that way, it's nearly like we're playing with our backs against the wall".
