Jimmy Butler did not want to answer any questions about his anticipated matchup with Marcus Smart.

Butler preferred to keep it more about their teams.

Smart, who is considered the best defender of Boston, will certainly guard Butler, who is one of Miami’s best offensive players.

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Heat and the Celtics is on Tuesday.
