LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.
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.

*Clippers-Celtics Preview* ==========================


Los Angeles (34-14) at Boston (23-23), 1:00 p.m. EDT

Neither Chris Paul nor Rajon Rondo played his best in the Los Angeles Clippers' rout of the Boston Celtics in December, forcing their teammates to pick up the slack.

The rematch figures to present a similar situation.

Boston looks to win a fourth straight game since Rondo's season-ending injury on Sunday when it hosts Los Angeles, which may not have Paul for a seventh straight contest.

Rondo scored 10 points, hit 4 of 12 from the field and committed four turnovers, while Paul - who did have 11 assists - scored eight points on 3-of-11 shooting in the Clippers' 106-77 victory Dec. 27.

It marked the worst loss and the fewest points of the season for the Celtics (23-23).

They also dropped the final six games Rondo played, blowing a 27-point lead at Atlanta on Jan. 25 when he tore his ACL.

Boston, though, hasn't lost since Rondo suffered the injury, getting back to .500 by beating Orlando 97-84 on Friday as six players scored in double figures.

"We have to be a team by committee," coach Doc Rivers said. "I'm asking guys to play different spots. It does create confusion on the other end."

The Celtics also found out before Friday's contest rookie Jared Sullinger would be out for the rest of the season following back surgery.

"With the injuries, a number of guys are stepping up and that's what we are going to need," said Paul Pierce, who had 14 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.

Courtney Lee, who has been starting in Rondo's place, scored 14 points and Jeff Green netted a game-high 17 off the bench.

"The production is coming from everybody," Lee said. "Now we just have to move the ball and make sure we are in the right spots to execute the offense."

The Clippers haven't had nearly the same success lately without Paul, who has missed nine of the last 11 games because of a bruised right kneecap.

Los Angeles won three straight from Jan. 14-17 when his injury first surfaced. It split two games before he re-aggravated it, then has dropped four of the last six after falling 98-73 at Toronto on Friday - its worst loss of the season.

The Clippers (34-14) also played without key reserve Matt Barnes, who was serving a one-game suspension for hitting Minnesota's Greg Stiemsma on Wednesday.

"We have to play with an edge more, especially on the road and especially when guys are out," coach Vinny Del Negro said.

Though Paul is likely to be out again, Barnes should be back to help an offense that set a season low for points and field-goal percentage (34.7).

"We didn't execute very well, we didn't shoot it very well," Del Negro said. "We struggled in a lot of areas. I don't think any of the rotations or anything were very efficient."

Barnes scored a season high-tying 21 points and Blake Griffin added 15 and eight rebounds in the December rout of the Celtics, who shot 40.3 percent.

The Clippers have lost four of their last five on the road.
