KEY GAME INFORMATION
DALLAS: GUARDS: DARREN COLLISON's jump shot might be shaky, but he can get into the lane at will. He'll be a much different look than Jason Kidd had been in Big D . . . O.J. MAYO becomes the second option in this offense. He'll have the ball in his hands a lot . . . VINCE CARTER will come off the bench. At this point, he's a three-point specialist, and not a very good one . . . DELONTE WEST will back up both guard spots. Don't be surprised if he overtakes Collison at some point . . . RODDY BEAUBOIS can heat up in an instant, but he has work to do to make this rotation . . . DAHNTAY JONES is roster filler . . . DOMINIQUE JONES enters the year on the roster bubble . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM will learn the point guard position watching from the bench as a rookie. FORWARDS: After a slow start last season, DIRK NOWITZKI looked like the Dirk of old in the second half of the year. He's still got something left in the tank, but it's still unclear if the swelling in his knee will require surgery, something that would shelve him for more than a month . . . SHAWN MARION is still an important cog in Carlisle's creative defensive gameplans, so he'll keep playing big minutes despite his dwindling offensive skills . . . ELTON BRAND is still relevant, even behind Nowitzki, because of his ability to play some center . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT will be in and out of the rotation again, but he's now relatively healthy and showed signs of being a serviceable rotation player a year ago . . . Rookie Jae CROWDER profiles as a potentially solid second-unit player, but he'll be buried on this depth chart. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN gives Dallas some offensive skill at center, but he's not exactly the defensive presence they've needed. He'll log the bulk of the minutes here, but there are going to be a handful of games where the Mavs have to sit him and go small for defensive purposes . . . 27-year-old rookie BERNARD JAMES could fill Ian Mahinmi's old role of a shot-blocker/fouler off the bench.
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.

*Mavericks-Celtics Preview* ===========================

By SANTOSH VENKATARAMAN STATS Senior Writer

Dallas (11-10) at Boston (11-9), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Maybe Jason Terry's play last season for the Dallas Mavericks against the Boston Celtics is a big reason why he's wearing green and white now.

Terry will face the Mavericks for the first time since joining the Celtics in Wednesday night's matchup in Boston.

Dallas (11-10) has won four straight over Boston (11-9), with Dirk Nowitzki leading the way with 24.0 points per game. Nowitzki is nearing a return, but remains out after right knee surgery.

Terry averaged 17.0 points in last season's two wins over Boston, and the free agent joined the Celtics on a three-year deal after eight seasons with Dallas - his second team after beginning his career with Atlanta. He is sixth on the Mavericks' all-time list with 9,953 points, seventh with 2,524 assists and second behind Nowitzki with 1,140 3-pointers.

It hasn't been a smooth transition with his new club - the sharpshooter is averaging 11.5 points for his lowest mark since his rookie season.

Dallas is seeking a season-high fourth straight win in the opener of a three-game trip. O.J. Mayo led six Mavericks in double figures with 19 points in Monday's 119-96 rout of Sacramento.

"We're playing good basketball right now," said Mayo, averaging 27.3 points and shooting 57.7 percent during this win streak. "But now we've got to take it on the road with us and continue playing hard. We need to continue playing with effort and energy."

Although the Mavericks posted their second-highest point total of the season, coach Rick Carlisle credited a defensive effort that limited the Kings to 44.0 percent shooting.

"We were in position and we were scrambling," Carlisle said. "So that made a lot of good things happen for us offensively."

Defense was a major reason why Boston posted its third straight home win, 92-79 over Philadelphia on Saturday. The Celtics limited the 76ers to 39.2 percent from the field.

"Our defense is why we won," coach Doc Rivers said. "I thought the first half, going zone, man and back and forth is good for us. And again when you play defense like that, you usually win games."

Boston bounced back from a 95-94 loss at Philadelphia the night before. Kevin Garnett scored 19 points and Rajon Rondo had 11 assists.

"After last night's performance, everybody came here with a chip on their shoulders," Garnett said. "So we need to play with a little edge more."

The Celtics have split their last six games, but have limited foes to 40.2 percent shooting in that span after allowing them to shoot 46.3 percent in their first 14 games.

"We're being more aggressive on the ball," forward Jeff Green said. "We're not allowing guys to turn the corner. I think we allowed guys to do that a lot the first part of the season. We just need to continue what we're doing."

Rondo continues to lead the NBA with 12.8 assists per game.

While Boston has struggled to shoot 26.4 percent on 3-pointers in its last three games, Dallas is shooting 37.5 percent from long range during its run, with Mayo making 12 of 18.

Mavs forward Shawn Marion has missed the last two games with a strained groin. He is day to day.
