Series within a series - Smart verse Butler

Jimmy Butler called out Marcus Smart to put a target on his back for at least the next game in Boston. Smart is known for being physical and has the reputation of being a loose cannon. Butler, who has risen to star status, is going to get the benefit of the doubt from the refs. Smart needs to be very careful with his emotions next game and not let Butler or the refs take him out of his game. He needs to play physical, but maintain control of his emotions and actions on the court.

On the other hand, if Brad trusts Smart to handle his emotions, it is a great opportunity to put Smart on Butler and tell him to get under his skin as much as possible and see if he might be the one that implodes. Let Marcus Smart play the role of Bruce Bowen.

If either Smart or Butler can win the mental edge and cause the other to focus on things other than basketball, it might be just enough to swing game 5.
