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.
DALLAS: GUARDS: DARREN COLLISON's jump shot might be shaky, but he can get into the lane at will. He'll be a much different look than Jason Kidd had been in Big D . . . O.J. MAYO becomes the second option in this offense. He'll have the ball in his hands a lot . . . VINCE CARTER will come off the bench. At this point, he's a three-point specialist, and not a very good one . . . DELONTE WEST will back up both guard spots. Don't be surprised if he overtakes Collison at some point . . . RODDY BEAUBOIS can heat up in an instant, but he has work to do to make this rotation . . . DAHNTAY JONES is roster filler . . . DOMINIQUE JONES enters the year on the roster bubble . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM will learn the point guard position watching from the bench as a rookie. FORWARDS: After a slow start last season, DIRK NOWITZKI looked like the Dirk of old in the second half of the year. He's still got something left in the tank, but it's still unclear if the swelling in his knee will require surgery, something that would shelve him for more than a month . . . SHAWN MARION is still an important cog in Carlisle's creative defensive gameplans, so he'll keep playing big minutes despite his dwindling offensive skills . . . ELTON BRAND is still relevant, even behind Nowitzki, because of his ability to play some center . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT will be in and out of the rotation again, but he's now relatively healthy and showed signs of being a serviceable rotation player a year ago . . . Rookie Jae CROWDER profiles as a potentially solid second-unit player, but he'll be buried on this depth chart. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN gives Dallas some offensive skill at center, but he's not exactly the defensive presence they've needed. He'll log the bulk of the minutes here, but there are going to be a handful of games where the Mavs have to sit him and go small for defensive purposes . . . 27-year-old rookie BERNARD JAMES could fill Ian Mahinmi's old role of a shot-blocker/fouler off the bench.

*Celtics-Mavericks Preview* ===========================


Boston (36-31) at Dallas (32-36), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The Boston Celtics just gave away a great opportunity to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff race, but they're still well on their way to another postseason appearance.

The same can't be said of the Dallas Mavericks.

Boston will try to avoid a third straight loss Friday night when the Mavericks welcome back forward Shawn Marion and Celtics guard Jason Terry, who makes his return to Dallas after a long and successful run with the team.

Up by as many 13 points in the third quarter Wednesday, the Celtics (36-31) lost 87-86 at lowly New Orleans on a last-second tip-in by No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis.

The meltdown didn't come as a major surprise to coach Doc Rivers.

"We started dancing around, stopped defending (starting late in the second quarter). You could see our guys laughing and joking," he said. "We don't learn because we have done this three or four times this year."

With 15 games left, the Celtics can't afford for this to continue if they're going to have any chance at a top-four spot in the East and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Boston is 3 1/2 games behind fourth-place Brooklyn and 1 1/2 back of fifth-place Atlanta. The Nets won 113-96 over Dallas (32-36) on Wednesday while the Hawks defeated Milwaukee 98-90.

The Celtics are also in contention for a sixth consecutive Atlantic Division title as they sit 4 1/2 games behind New York.

While Boston looks to improve its 2-10 road record against the West, the Mavericks are trying to get back into the win column after opening a season-high six-game homestand Wednesday.

Advancing to the postseason for a 13th consecutive season is in doubt as Dallas trails the eighth-place Los Angeles Lakers by 3 1/2 games.

The Mavericks, though, could get a boost - especially defensively and on the boards - with Marion, the team leader with 7.9 rebounds per game, expected to play after missing eight games with a strained left calf. Dallas went 5-3 with Marion sidelined and was outrebounded by an average of 12.3 in the losses.

"We definitely could have used some of his defense the last couple of games," forward Dirk Nowitzki told the Mavericks' official website. "Our defense has been terrible (giving up 107 or more in each of the last three games) and he's our best defender on the perimeter. .... So it's definitely going to be good to see him back."

The Mavericks also expect Terry to get a warm welcome after he signed with Boston in the offseason after spending eight years with Dallas, including its title run in 2010-11.

"Well, he'll get a great reception," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's one of the most beloved players I think in the history of this franchise because of his personality, his relationship with the fans and the community and he was a great player."

Terry had 10 points the first time he faced his former teammates, a 117-115 double-overtime win Dec. 12. Paul Pierce scored 34 to help Boston snap a four-game skid in this series.

Nowitzki will face the Celtics for the first time in 2012-13 after missing the previous game with a knee injury. His 26.9 scoring average in 26 games versus Boston is his highest against any team.
