Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley said he felt disrespected by comments made by Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler and used them as motivation Friday night when Boston completed its rally from an 0-2 deficit to end Chicago’s season.

“You want to know something, I took [Butler’s comments] personal,” Bradley said. “There was a few guys that walked up to me and said — I think Jimmy had said [after Game 5], ‘We can’t let guys like Avery Bradley score 20.’ And I usually don’t say anything. I just go out there and play hard. But I feel like every player should respect this game and respect the guys that go out there and prepare every single night.”
