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.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.

*Celtics-Kings Preview* =======================

By MATT BECKER STATS Editor

Boston (14-15) at Sacramento (10-19), 9:00 p.m. EDT

After an uninspiring showing without Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics hope to have their point guard back for the finale of a four-game trip.

Rondo is expected to be a game-time decision Sunday night when the Celtics face a Sacramento Kings team that may have Tyreke Evans back in the starting lineup for the first time in two weeks.

Rondo was a late scratch for Saturday's game against Golden State because of a bruised right thigh and hip sustained in Thursday's 106-77 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. It was a similar result against the Warriors, as Boston (14-15) fell behind by as many as 22 in losing 101-83.

The offense struggled mightily without Rondo's direction, shooting a season-low 36.0 percent and going just 5 of 22 (22.7 percent) from 3-point range. Paul Pierce and Jason Terry were both brutal from the floor, as Pierce finished with 13 points on 4-of-20 shooting while Terry scored the same amount and hit 6 of 19.

Rondo's replacement in the starting lineup, Courtney Lee, had a team-high 18 points but had zero assists. Rondo averages 13.6 points and a league-best 11.7 assists.

The Celtics, who have lost six of eight to drop below .500 for the first time since they were 2-3 on Nov. 9, are 1-3 without Rondo this season.

"We got to keep working at this," said Kevin Garnett, who had six points and three rebounds. "This is where you start to see who's with you. This is when you see who really wants it, who really wants to get down and work and grind for it. We're about to find it out."

The Kings (10-19) have been without Evans for a majority of the last month, as he's missed the last six games and 11 of 15 because of an injured left knee. He believes he came back too soon before, but now feels he's ready to return and play at a high level.

He was averaging 21.0 points on 54.8 percent shooting along with 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists in the five games before getting hurt.

"I was playing (well before the injury)," Evans told the Kings' official website. "Hopefully, when I come back, I can pick it up and play the same way."

Sacramento is trying to build on Friday's wild 106-105 victory over New York, its third win in five games.

The Kings appeared well on their way to an easy victory, leading by 27 points in the second quarter and 22 halfway through the third, but things quickly fell apart and the Knicks stormed back to take a two-point lead late.

John Salmons was trapped in the corner with seconds remaining, but he found James Johnson at the top of the key and the reserve forward, who came in 0 for 11 from beyond the arc, knocked down a 3 as time expired.

"It was a broken play and we made something out of it," guard Isaiah Thomas said.

DeMarcus Cousins returned after being suspended for the previous two games for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team following a verbal confrontation with coach Keith Smart. He finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds and stole a pass with 16 seconds left to set up the Kings' final possession.

Sacramento has a chance to win four straight home games for the first time since 2009, while the Celtics are 1-7 on the road this month.

The Kings earned a 120-95 victory over Boston last season in Sacramento, snapping an eight-game losing streak in the series. Marcus Thornton had 36 points, while Jason Thompson scored 21 and Cousins added 20.
