KEY GAME INFORMATION
BOSTON: GUARDS: This offense now belongs to RAJON RONDO, and that should be especially true during the regular season . . . Even if he comes off the bench, JASON TERRY figures to see the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard. He provides some much-needed outside shooting after Ray Allen left and should challenge Paul Pierce for the team lead in shot attempts . . . Adding COURTNEY LEE was more of a move for the future. He's a fine young second-unit player for now and should be an heir apparent on one of the wings . . . AVERY BRADLEY could be out until December after shoulder surgery. As Boston's best perimeter defensive player, he could reclaim his starting job in the season's second half . . . The addition of LEANDRO BARBOSA gives Boston another veteran who can create his own offense in the second unit, something that was sorely missing in last year's playoff run. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE quietly had a great regular season last year. Though with some improved depth behind him, Rivers might have his 35-year-old All-Star wing rest more often . . . BRANDON BASS gives them another scoring option, even if he does struggle on the defensive end. He'll get full-time minutes only in certain matchups as long as the frontcourt is healthy . . . JEFF GREEN's heart condition is no longer a concern, but the tweener's role in Boston after a year off is cause for worry . . . There are already question marks surrounding rookie JARED SULLINGER's back. He's very similar to Bass: He can score out to mid-range but doesn't play much defense. Expect him to be strictly a second-unit player in his first NBA season . . . CHRIS WILCOX will provide fouls off the bench when healthy. CENTERS: The Celtics are prepared to go with KEVIN GARNETT in the middle, which was the case when they were at their best last season. His role on offense is still knocking down mid-range jumpers, and he's still an elite defensive player . . . Professional flopper JASON COLLINS will fill in nicely for the departed Greg Stiemsma . . . FAB MELO is years away from being ready to contribute (if he actually is ever ready to contribute) and DARKO MILICIC was also added via free agency for more frontcourt depth.
DETROIT: GUARDS: RODNEY STUCKEY was hampered by nagging injuries a year ago. If he's healthy, he's the best offensive weapon they have . . . BRANDON KNIGHT is more of a combo guard running the point. He can shoot, but doesn't bring much else to the table . . . With Ben Gordon gone, WILL BYNUM has a chance to regain a significant role . . . The Pistons' two second-round picks have a chance to carve out big roles. KIM ENGLISH has a skill set similar to Gordon's, capable of heating up and scoring in bunches . . . KHRIS MIDDLETON is more of a spot-up, catch-and-shoot threat only . . . Former No. 6 overall pick JONNY FLYNN agreed to a non-guaranteed contract in October, as he is no guarantee to even make this sorry roster. FORWARDS: TAYSHAUN PRINCE is still hanging on as the Pistons' best all-around player . . . JASON MAXIELL should be able to reclaim his starting spot early. He rebounds and takes up space . . . JONAS JEREBKO showed flashes but looked rusty in his first year back from an Achilles injury . . . 2011 2nd-rounder KYLE SINGLER has a good chance to step into the rotation after a solid year in Spain . . . COREY MAGGETTE was acquired in a Ben Gordon salary dump. He'll see limited minutes . . . AUSTIN DAYE regressed big-time last year. Unless he gets off to a hot start, he'll be on the outside looking in at the rotation . . . TERRENCE WILLIAMS is seeking a new lease on life, but could be too much of a head case to realize he's wasting his talent . . . The Pistons are counting down the days left on CHARLIE VILLANUEVA's contract (two years). CENTERS: GREG MONROE is a solid fit in Frank's system. He's not a great athlete, but he can score and move the ball on offense, as well as rebound . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND could one day be a perfect fit alongside Monroe. But for now, he'll watch and learn as a raw, boom-or-bust prospect . . . VIACHESLAV KRAVTSOV is an athletic big who will bring energy, but little offense in limited minutes.

*Celtics-Pistons Preview* =========================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Boston (6-4) at Detroit (1-9), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The way Rajon Rondo has been creating for his teammates, a structured offense has been optional for the Boston Celtics.

Rondo will try to extend his streak of consecutive games with double-digit assists to 34 as the Celtics play for the fourth time in five days Sunday at the struggling Detroit Pistons.

After missing the team's loss to Brooklyn on Thursday because of a sprained right ankle, Rondo showed no ill effects Saturday, dishing out 20 assists in 32 minutes to lead Boston (6-4) to its biggest win of the season - 107-89 over Toronto.

Rondo, who sat out most of the fourth quarter, also had 20 assists against Philadelphia on Nov. 9. At 13.4 assists per game, he's on pace to become the NBA's highest assist leader since John Stockton averaged 13.7 in 1991-92.

Rondo can move within three games of tying Stockton for the second-longest streak in NBA history for consecutive games with 10 or more assists. Magic Johnson holds the record at 46.

"We have an offense and then he creates another offense at times," coach Doc Rivers said.

Boston, seeking its fifth win in six games, had assists on 37 of 43 field goals. Jason Terry scored a season-high 20 points, Paul Pierce added 19 and Kevin Garnett had 15 in 17 minutes.

"Something I look forward to every game is just trying to make my teammates happy. And somehow I keep getting to 10," Rondo said.

With Rondo continuing to find open looks for teammates, Boston shot a season-best 56.6 percent and matched a season high with 107 points.

The Celtics rank among the top teams in the league in field goal percentage at 47.8.

Rondo and Boston should be able to continue their success against a struggling Detroit team trying to avoid an NBA-high 10th loss.

The Pistons (1-9) have allowed just 20.4 assists per game, but they're coming off their worst defensive effort of the season.

After winning at Philadelphia on Wednesday to snap a franchise-worst 0-8 start, Detroit faltered down the stretch Friday in a 110-106 loss to Orlando. The Pistons - who had limited the 76ers to 76 points - allowed 39 fourth-quarter points to the Magic, who entered the game averaging only 88.0 points.

"If we're going to lose, we have to lose on our terms," coach Lawrence Frank said. "We've learned that a shootout probably isn't going to be the best thing for us, and the one win we have, we locked in and scored off of our defense as opposed to relying on just offense."

Greg Monroe scored 23 points to lead six players in double figures, Kyle Singler added 14 in his first start and Brandon Knight added 10 and 12 assists as Detroit had season highs in shooting (53.7 percent) and points.

Detroit, 0-3 at home and trying to avoid its first four-game losing streak there since dropping five straight from Jan. 4-20, is looking for its third straight win against the Celtics after taking two of three in the series last season.

Rondo scored a career-high 35 points on 15 of 27 shooting in a 98-88 loss to Detroit on Feb. 15, but finished with only six assists.
