The Celtics look to get back to .500 tonight as they visit the Pacers (1-3) in Indiana. The green will have to do so without the services of starting point guard Marcus Smart:

Smart is averaging 12.0 points and 3.7 assists per game for the 1-2 Celtics.
Expect Evan Turner to get the start in Smart's absence. With a thin frontcourt, rookies Terry Rozier and R.J. Hunter could see some playing time against a Pacers squad that has dabbled in small ball more this year than years past.
It looks like coach Brad Stevens is shaking things up:
