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.
PHILADELPHIA: GUARDS: JRUE HOLIDAY is knocking on the door of All-Star status. He's excellent defensively, though his stats sometimes sag because of Philly's deliberate style . . . JASON RICHARDSON gives them some shooting on the wing, but may see his minutes fade if he can't play the kind of defense Collins demands . . . Swingman EVAN TURNER is an intriguing but flawed player. He doesn't quite have the offensive repertoire to be a primary scorer, and he'll continue to get inconsistent minutes as Collins plays to matchups on the wings . . . NICK YOUNG will have something of a lesser sixth-man role than Lou Williams used to have . . . As an offensively-limited but athletic, defensive-minded guard, ROYAL IVEY is the kind of bench player Collins looks for. FORWARDS: Even with Elton Brand gone, THADDEUS YOUNG will play more of a part-time role. Collins has never seemed satisfied with his talented young 'tweener, and Spencer Hawes is expected to slide to the four alongside Andrew Bynum . . . DORELL WRIGHT brings some much needed shooting on the wing. He plays the kind of defense Collins demands and, if his shot is on, he should be close to a 30-MPG player despite his struggles in Golden State last season . . . LAVOY ALLEN is a serviceable reserve big. He'll see few minutes off the bench unless Bynum gets hurt . . . ARNETT MOULTRIE fits the Sixers mold as an athlete. He could be a regular in the rotation by midseason. CENTERS: Maybe ANDREW BYNUM will be happier moving back to the east coast. As long as his knees hold up, he's an All-Star lock . . . SPENCER HAWES will actually play a lot of four this year. He's an offensively-capable 7-footer who's also become a much better rebounder over the past couple seasons . . . KWAME BROWN will be sparingly used as a big body who can move on the defensive end.

*Celtics-76ers Preview* =======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Boston (31-27) at Philadelphia (23-35), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Saddled with a grueling road-heavy schedule, things haven't come easy for the Boston Celtics since the All-Star break.

That's also been the case when they've had to travel to Philadelphia.

The Celtics will be coming off a much-needed three-day layoff when they attempt to end their road struggles against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.

Boston (31-27) dropped three of four to open a five-game road swing following the break before wrapping up the trip with a hard-fought 110-107 overtime win over Utah on Feb. 25.

The Celtics then limited red-hot Stephen Curry, who was coming off a 54-point effort at New York two days earlier, to 25 points on 6-of-22 shooting in a 94-86 home victory over Golden State on Friday. Paul Pierce led the way with 26 points and Jeff Green had 18 off the bench for Boston, which won for the third time in four games and sits in seventh place in the Eastern Conference.

The Celtics are in the midst of playing nine of 11 on the road.

"Every game is important from here on out because it could mean the difference between the eighth seed and the fourth seed," Pierce said.

While these division rivals conclude their season series Tuesday, they haven't played in almost three months. The 76ers were off to an 11-8 start the last time they met, but they've since lost 27 of 39.

Evan Turner had 26 points, including the winning shot with 3.9 seconds left, and Thaddeus Young added 17 and 12 rebounds to lead the host 76ers (23-35) to a 95-94 overtime win over Boston on Dec. 7. Including last year's postseason series, Philadelphia has won six of seven at home over the Celtics.

Kevin Garnett had 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting but failed to pick up a rebound for the first time since Jan. 21, 1997, and Green added 16 as Boston returned the favor with a 92-79 home victory the following evening. Garnett had a combined 36 points and 20 rebounds in the first two games against the 76ers.

Turner also had a big game with 25 points and 11 rebounds in a 106-100 win at Boston on Nov. 9, but he hasn't played nearly as well lately. He's averaging 12.5 points on 37.6 percent shooting in his last 14 games.

The 76ers have lost eight of nine following a 90-87 defeat at Washington on Sunday.

After scoring 49 while making 21 of 39 from the field in his previous two contests, Jrue Holiday will try to bounce back from a 14-point effort on 4-of-19 shooting. Holiday had 21 points and 14 assists in the win over Boston in November.

"I really feel like we do fight and come to play every single game," Holiday said.

Philadelphia, though, has averaged 86.9 points on 41.8 percent shooting over the last 12 games. It's not likely to be any easier against the Celtics, who have limited their opponents to 90.8 points in regulation over their last four.

Pierce is averaging 21.3 points in this season's series despite shooting 43.1 percent from the field. He's also scored 25.0 per game on 54.9 percent shooting in his last three overall.

Boston has averaged 86.0 points and hit 28.3 percent from 3-point range over its last seven visits to Philadelphia.
