The Chicago Bulls had a chance to close out the series with two games in Chicago. But instead, after a Game 4 loss on Sunday they are headed to Boston all tied at two.
When the two teams meet on Wednesday night in Boston, tensions will be very high.
Particularly between Bulls star Jimmy Butler and Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart.
The two had a heated moment during Game 4, jawing at each other following a play in which Isaiah Cannan stole the ball from Smart and laid it in.

Following the Celtics win, Butler didn’t hold back on Smart. He called the third-year player an “actor” and said he doesn’t think Smart is about that life.
Listen to what Butler had to say:

Pretty much Butler is calling Smart out for his antics and doesn’t think he can stand up to Jimmy and instead will back down.
We will see what Smart’s reaction is on Wednesday, especially if these two get tangled up once again.
