Boston's Monday starter, Rick Porcello (1-3, 4.75 ERA), looks to reverse his early-season struggles after a rare four-walk game his last time out against the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

The two biggest reasons have been the broken right thumb of the Bulls' Rajon Rondo suffered in Game 2 and the decision by Boston coach Brad Stevens to go smaller since then by sitting starter Amir Johnson in favor of energetic scorer Gerald Green .
He and Smart had some words on the floor, and Butler had some more words to say after the Boston win. But if Butler wants to have another chat, Smart retorted: "It ain't hard to find me".
