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.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.

*Celtics-Suns Preview* ======================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Boston (28-26) at Phoenix (18-37), 9:00 p.m. EDT

There was talk that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett could have been dealt earlier this week. But with the trade deadline passed, the two future Hall of Famers will still be wearing Boston Celtics green.

Third-year guard Jordan Crawford will soon get his first chance to do that.

Crawford could make his Celtics debut on Friday night in Phoenix, where the Western Conference-worst Suns could have a few of their newest players in uniform.

Pierce said after Wednesday's 113-99 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers that he hadn't talked to general manager Danny Ainge about any trade rumors involving him.

"I can't worry about that," said Pierce, who finished with a team-high 26 points. "I've got a job to do and they've got to do what's best for the franchise. I've always understood that this is just a business."

Ainge didn't move Pierce or Garnett, who would have had to waive his no-trade clause, before Thursday's deadline. Instead, Ainge pulled the trigger on a deal that sent center Jason Collins and recently injured guard Leandro Barbosa (ACL) to Washington for Crawford, who had fallen out of favor with the Wizards.

Crawford, though, is a big-time offensive threat with 12 20-point games this season. He averaged 19.1 points in 13 December games when John Wall was sidelined with an injury. Crawford will be able to play at either guard spot for coach Doc Rivers.

"Jordan's a scorer and he will provide versatility that will add great depth to our roster," Ainge said Thursday in an official press release.

The Celtics (28-26) need all the help they can get on the road, where they are 8-17. The Celtics, 0-2 on a season-high five-game trip, have lost all seven games visiting West opponents this season by an average of 16.7 points.

That could change on Friday against the lowly Suns, who are looking to bounce back from their ninth setback in 12 games, Wednesday's 108-98 loss at Golden State.

News broke earlier that Phoenix sent a second-round draft pick to Houston for forward Marcus Morris, who joins his older twin brother, Markieff, on the Suns' roster.

The two former Kansas teammates will be the second set of twins to play together in the NBA, joining Dick and Tom Van Arsdale, who were on the Suns in 1976-77.

"I think it will help both of those guys," coach Lindsey Hunter told the Suns' official website. "Any time you have your sibling it's a comfort level you have with that person. Hopefully they can push each other and keep one another going when things are going well."

Still, the Suns (18-37) aren't expecting this move - or any other one - to immediately fix what has been one of the worst seasons in team history.

"We just have to show some of the new guys what to do. It takes time," swingman Jared Dudley said. "We've already made one trade and through free agency and the draft you'll start to see our new identity forming soon."

The Suns also sent backup point guard Sebastien Telfair, who had fallen behind rookie Kendall Marshall in Hunter's rotation, to Toronto on Thursday for a 2014 second-round pick and 7-2 center Hamed Haddadi.

Despite Garnett being the only Celtics starter in double-figure scoring (10 points), the host Celtics defeated the Suns 87-79 on Jan. 9.

Phoenix has won two straight and five of six at home in this series.
