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.
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.

*Celtics-Nuggets Preview* =========================


Boston (28-24) at Denver (33-21), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Boston Celtics have overcome a slew of injuries to remain a factor in the Eastern Conference.

They also withstood three overtimes to beat the Denver Nuggets last week.

The Celtics look to continue their strong play Tuesday night when they emerge from the All-Star break and attempt to come away with a rare win at Denver.

Boston (28-24) lost Rajon Rondo (torn ACL), Jared Sullinger (back surgery) and Leandro Barbosa (torn ACL) to season-ending injuries within the last month. The Celtics seemed headed in the wrong direction with a season-high six-game slide that culminated with Rondo's injury during a 123-111 double-overtime loss in Atlanta on Jan. 25.

They've since turned things around, winning eight of nine - including victories over Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers before entering the break with a 71-69 win over Chicago on Wednesday.

"I know everybody thought we were going to tank because Rondo and Sully went out, but we've been fighting for those guys and ourselves. And that's all you can ask," center Kevin Garnett said. "With that, I'm pleased. I'm not pleased with where we are (compared) to where we could be. But with everything that's been involved this year, we'll take it."

Garnett and the Celtics were surely pleased after a 118-114 triple-overtime victory at home against the Nuggets (33-21) on Feb. 10.

Boston is looking to sweep the season series for the first time since 2003-04, but it has lost three straight and seven of eight in Denver.

Garnett, averaging 17.7 points and 10.2 rebounds over the past 10 games, is hoping to be rested for this season-high five-game road trip. He played just over 6 minutes in Sunday's All-Star game in Houston.

"In the back of my mind you have Denver Tuesday, Lakers Wednesday," Garnett told the team's official website. "I was just thinking about the schedule and having to face these teams second half.

"Mentally you have to be ready for Denver. Their pace is incredible, especially when they're at home. They're 22-3 at home."

Garnett had 20 points, 18 rebounds and six assists in a season-high 47 minutes against the Nuggets last week. Paul Pierce is averaging 22.0 points over the last four matchups, getting a triple-double in the most recent with 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists.

The Nuggets are certainly rested following the break since they didn't have an All-Star despite sitting in fifth place in the Western Conference and ranking third in the league with 105.1 points per game.

They may have been looking forward to some time off, however, since they followed a season-high nine-game winning streak by dropping three in a row.

Leading scorer Danilo Gallinari (illness) and Andre Iguodala (neck) missed the last two games, including a 119-108 loss at Brooklyn on Wednesday.

"Without Gallinari and Iguodala, we're down two of our better defenders. There's no question that Gallo and A.I. give us length and some experienced defensive-minded guys," coach George Karl said.

Gallinari is averaging 20.9 points over his last seven games.

Ty Lawson is averaging 28.0 points and 9.0 assists while shooting 62.3 percent - 9 for 14 from 3-point range - during the losing streak. He had a game-high 29 points against the Celtics on Feb. 10.
