PHILADELPHIA: GUARDS: JRUE HOLIDAY is knocking on the door of All-Star status. He's excellent defensively, though his stats sometimes sag because of Philly's deliberate style . . . JASON RICHARDSON gives them some shooting on the wing, but may see his minutes fade if he can't play the kind of defense Collins demands . . . Swingman EVAN TURNER is an intriguing but flawed player. He doesn't quite have the offensive repertoire to be a primary scorer, and he'll continue to get inconsistent minutes as Collins plays to matchups on the wings . . . NICK YOUNG will have something of a lesser sixth-man role than Lou Williams used to have . . . As an offensively-limited but athletic, defensive-minded guard, ROYAL IVEY is the kind of bench player Collins looks for. FORWARDS: Even with Elton Brand gone, THADDEUS YOUNG will play more of a part-time role. Collins has never seemed satisfied with his talented young 'tweener, and Spencer Hawes is expected to slide to the four alongside Andrew Bynum . . . DORELL WRIGHT brings some much needed shooting on the wing. He plays the kind of defense Collins demands and, if his shot is on, he should be close to a 30-MPG player despite his struggles in Golden State last season . . . LAVOY ALLEN is a serviceable reserve big. He'll see few minutes off the bench unless Bynum gets hurt . . . ARNETT MOULTRIE fits the Sixers mold as an athlete. He could be a regular in the rotation by midseason. CENTERS: Maybe ANDREW BYNUM will be happier moving back to the east coast. As long as his knees hold up, he's an All-Star lock . . . SPENCER HAWES will actually play a lot of four this year. He's an offensively-capable 7-footer who's also become a much better rebounder over the past couple seasons . . . KWAME BROWN will be sparingly used as a big body who can move on the defensive end.
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.

*76ers-Celtics Preview* =======================


Philadelphia (10-8) at Boston (10-8), 7:30 p.m. EDT

It could be difficult for the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics to provide a more exciting game less than 24 hours later after staging a thriller.

These Atlantic Division foes played an emotional and pulsating overtime contest one night before Saturday night's rematch at the TD Garden.

The 76ers-Celtics rivalry used to be one of the best in the NBA. That kind of intensity could be back now after Boston eliminated Philadelphia in seven games in last season's playoffs.

The 76ers (11-8) have responded by winning the first two matchups since, including a 95-94 victory Friday at home. That contest featured trash talking by both teams, with Evan Turner yelling at Paul Pierce on one sequence.

"When the adrenaline kicks in and trash talk occurs, you want to shut the other team up," Turner said.

Turner did exactly that with another big game against the Celtics with 26 points and 10 rebounds. He had team highs of 25 points and 11 boards in a 106-100 victory at Boston (10-9) on Nov. 9.

After missing his first four shots in overtime, Turner drove past Courtney Lee and tossed up an off-balance, right-handed shot for the winner with 3.9 seconds left.

"Hopefully, it's the first of many," Turner said. "I'm glad I was able to break through."

The Celtics lost despite Rajon Rondo's triple-double. Rondo had 16 points, 14 assists and a season-high 13 rebounds.

It was Boston's first loss in Rondo's 14 triple-doubles and the point guard slipped and his ankles buckled on the game's last possession, costing him a chance to maintain that perfect record.

"It's frustrating," Rondo said. "But the good thing about the NBA is you've got a chance to bounce back tomorrow night and get it back."

Rondo also missed a potential game-winner at the end of regulation.

"This is a make-miss league," coach Doc Rivers said. "When you miss open shots, you're going to lose. And they made theirs."

Pierce scored 27 points and Kevin Garnett added 17 and 10 rebounds. Garnett is no stranger to trash talk, and he sounded like he couldn't wait for Saturday night.

"Philly plays us tough. We all know that," Garnett said. "But we're building something here, and we'll take what we need out of this and get ready to get right back after them."

The Sixers won despite 37.4 percent shooting as the Celtics trapped point guard Jrue Holiday on numerous possessions. Thaddeus Young scored 17 points and Holiday added 15, although both made just 7 of 18 shots.

"I found out a lot about my guys tonight, I really did," coach Doug Collins said.

Philadelphia avoided its first three-game slide. Spencer Hawes, who Collins challenged in practice Thursday, turned in a solid effort with 10 points and six boards.

Collins had a message for his team regarding this rematch.

"He says the great ones do it when they're tired," Turner said. "Tomorrow's going to be key, both teams are going to be tired. I think we can pull through."

Sixers reserve guard Nick Young has missed the last three games with a left big toe hyperextension, but could return Saturday. He lived up to his "Swaggy P" nickname when he walked into the locker room wearing leopard skin shoes Friday.
