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.
GOLDEN STATE: GUARDS: STEPHEN CURRY is this offense's engine and a stat-stuffing machine, as long as he's healthy. His ankle should be healed, but his small frame hasn't proven to be up to the rigors of the NBA . . . KLAY THOMPSON is a pure shooter who played himself into a starting job last year. He's a bit one-dimensional, but this spread, up-tempo offense is right up his alley . . . JARRETT JACK will back up both guard spots and provide some insurance for the fragile Curry . . . BRANDON RUSH is going to push for a starting job, but he's never proven to be more than a second-unit talent . . . As a rookie, CHARLES JENKINS proved worthy of a roster spot during his late-season audition. But he'll be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs as long as Curry and Jack are healthy. FORWARDS: DAVID LEE's touches will drop alongside Andrew Bogut. The Warriors seem prepared to give him major minutes despite his defensive shortcomings . . . HARRISON BARNES should push for a starting job early. He's not a great iso player, but the Warriors' offense should set him up with catch-and-score opportunities . . . CARL LANDRY is active around the basket and should do some damage over 20 MPG . . . RICHARD JEFFERSON is going to be in a mentor role until his contract expires in two years . . . JEREMY TYLER is young and a borderline usable big off the bench . . . Second-rounder DRAYMOND GREEN isn't an athlete but does a bit of everything. He figures to have a limited role as a rookie. CENTERS: His fractured ankle is not quite 100 percent, but ANDREW BOGUT hopes to be healed enough when the season starts to be the centerpiece of the frontcourt. He can rebound and defend, and he'll get his share of easy scoring opportunities with so many shooters spreading the floor . . . The Warriors seem content to let ANDRIS BIEDRINS rot on the bench . . . Rookie FESTUS EZELI is too raw offensively to see significant minutes.

*Celtics-Warriors Preview* ==========================

By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer

Boston (14-14) at Golden State (20-10), 10:30 p.m. EDT

After kicking off a four-game trek with a much-needed win Christmas Day, the Boston Celtics saw their road woes resume their last time out.

They're likely to have their hands full again with a visit to the Bay up next.

The Celtics try to avoid falling below .500 for the first time in seven weeks Saturday night as they visit a Golden State Warriors team that continues to turn heads.

Boston (14-14) entered Tuesday having dropped five straight and seven of eight in opposing arenas before handily beating Brooklyn 93-76. The Celtics, though, got all they could handle two nights later in a 106-77 rout at the hands of the surging Los Angeles Clippers, who held a 42-26 edge in the paint and scored 26 points off 18 turnovers.

"Right now, they are a better team than us - that is the way they play," Boston's Jason Terry told the Clippers' official website. "So for us it is not something to be frustrated about, we just have to move forward and keep grinding. Last game we did some great things and (Thursday) it wasn't so great."

Kevin Garnett had a team-high 16 points while Paul Pierce scored 12. Terry and Rajon Rondo added 10 apiece on a combined 8-of-22 shooting.

"Every individual on our team wanted to beat them and every individual tried to do it by themselves instead of just playing our game," said coach Doc Rivers, whose team hasn't been under .500 since it was 2-3 on Nov. 9.

The Celtics are seeking a fourth consecutive win in this series after pulling out a 105-103 road victory March 14 behind Garnett's 20-foot jumper with seven seconds left. Boston has posted back-to-back wins at Golden State (20-10) after dropping 12 of its previous 14 there.

While some have been hesitant to jump on the Warriors' bandwagon, they're looking more and more like the real deal. Two nights after winning 94-83 at Utah, Golden State beat Philadelphia 96-89 to improve to 13-4 over its last 17 games Friday.

David Lee led the way with 25 points and 12 boards for the Warriors, who outrebounded the 76ers 52-43 and limited them to 40.2 percent shooting.

"We've been consistent whether we are home or on the road," coach Mark Jackson said. "We play with an edge, we play with a belief, and now our job is just to chalk them up in the win column. Mission accomplished tonight."

This is the first time since 1980-81 that the Warriors have compiled 20 wins before New Year's Day.

"We're just trying to make our own history here," Lee told the league's official website. "The biggest thing is that our team is doing this together and we're continuing to get better and better. I don't think our best ball's even been played yet."

The Warriors continue to thrive on the defense end of the court. Golden State is 15-1 when holding foes to 98 points or fewer and has posted a 43.1 opponent field-goal percentage to rank fifth in the league.

The Warriors will surely try to add to Pierce's recent woes. The 10-time All-Star is averaging a team-high 20.2 points but has put up a combined 20 in his last two games while going 8 for 23 (34.8 percent) from the field.

Pierce is averaging 24.9 points versus Golden State since the start of 2000-01 - tied for his second-highest mark against any team over that stretch.
