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.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.

(Clarifies Varejao's injury)

*Celtics-Cavaliers Preview* ===========================

By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer

Boston (20-20) at Cleveland (10-32), 7:00 p.m. EDT

With the Boston Celtics mired in another rough stretch, coach Doc Rivers wonders just how focused his team is on improving its play.

Coming off another questionable effort, the Celtics hope to avoid matching their season-high four-game skid by posting a fourth consecutive series victory overall and on the road against the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Boston (20-20) has been inconsistent all season and rather streaky over the last 3 1/2 weeks. The Celtics averaged 84.8 points while allowing 104.5 during a four-game slide from Dec. 27-Jan 2, but followed by yielding 85.2 points per contest over a season-high six-game winning streak.

However, the Celtics have dropped three in a row since that run, beginning with a 90-78 loss to New Orleans on Wednesday. Boston showed life in a 100-99 overtime home defeat to Chicago on Friday, but never led in Sunday's 103-88 loss at Detroit.

"We are playing awful and I am clearly not doing my job for this team - and I am serious," Rivers said. "I am not trying to take a bullet for the team and I told them that. I said we have to find something where all 12 guys play the same way."

Rajon Rondo had 15 assists and nine rebounds Sunday but shot 4 of 16 and committed half of Boston's 18 turnovers. Paul Pierce had 10 points in 36 minutes as the Celtics shot 39.8 percent.

Rivers will consider just about every option in his search to solve Boston's problems.

"I do not know if we need changes," he said. "I am saying if we do not get it right then we may. The six-game winning streak was great. Three of those six we played tremendous basketball and the other three we won the game.

"I do not think the guys are honest with each other. I just do not think we are committed to being a good basketball team."

Pierce is 1 of 11 from 3-point range while scoring 11.7 per game - 7.3 below his average - in the last three. Rondo scored 30 points on 12-of-21 shooting against the Bulls, but sandwiched that contest by totaling 15 while going 7 of 24 from the field versus New Orleans and Detroit.

A visit to Cleveland (10-32) might help the Celtics get back on track for at least one night. Pierce scored 40 and Rondo added 20 as Boston shot a season-high 59.7 percent in a 103-91 home victory over the Cavaliers on Dec. 19.

The Celtics have shot 50.0 percent or better in five of their last six games against Cleveland.

The December meeting was the first game Anderson Varejao missed with a leg injury that eventually required surgery, but the Cavaliers found out Monday that a far more serious issue came up. Varejao developed a blood clot in his lung following the surgery and will miss the remainder of the season as he'll spend the next three months on blood thinners.

Boston has won the last two meetings at Quicken Loans Arena by three points each, and now visits a Cavaliers team that's just 4-12 at home and returning from a 1-4 road trip.

Rookie Dion Waiters scored 23 while Kyrie Irving added 18 with nine assists Saturday, but Cleveland allowed Utah to shoot 50.0 percent in a 109-98 loss.

"When our guys want to get it going, we just don't," said Irving, who was 7 of 20 from the field after going 13 of 24 for 31 points in Wednesday's 93-88 win at Portland. "We talk about it. Then teams make shots and we just don't respond."

Irving has averaged 22.5 points and shot 55.7 percent (34 of 61) in four career games versus Boston.
