The playoff pressure is taking its toll as Marcus Smart received a technical foul after an altercation with Jimmy Butler on Sunday. The Celtics bounced back from a 0-2 deficit to tie the series 2-2. Smart did his job on the board, averaging 7.5 rebounds in the two road games. Smart was the main facilitator off the bench, averaging 5.5 assists per game. He did not have high scoring games as he averaged six points per game.

Tony Allen’s calf injury is still bothering him as he did not dress for Games 3, 4 and 5. It is doubtful he will return in the first round.
