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.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.

*Celtics-Cavaliers Preview* ===========================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Boston (36-34) at Cleveland (22-47), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Boston Celtics continue to slide - and with it, their chances of improving their playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference.

Struggling to adjust in the wake of a significant injury, Boston on Wednesday night visits a Cleveland Cavaliers team that is dealing with its own injury problems and is also mired in a five-game losing streak.

The Celtics (36-34) are only a little more than two weeks removed from a five-game winning streak, but have since gone 2-7 and are a defeat away from matching a season-worst six-game skid from Jan. 16-25. They were in a three-way tie for fifth place in the East on March 16, but are now in seventh, 2 1/2 games back of sixth-place Atlanta.

Tuesday's 100-85 home loss to the Knicks marked their second straight game without Kevin Garnett, who is out with inflammation in his left ankle and a return date is uncertain. Courtney Lee also missed his second game in a row because of a sprained left ankle, with Jordan Crawford starting and scoring 14 points.

Although Garnett is the team's leading rebounder (7.8 rpg) and second-leading scorer (14.9 ppg), coach Doc Rivers doesn't buy his absence as much of an excuse.

"Kevin's not playing. I don't worry about it," Rivers said. "Overall, we were pretty bad. Kevin had nothing to do with that."

Playing without Rajon Rondo, the Celtics have struggled with turnovers, committing an average of 16.8 per game during their skid compared to opponents' 13.2. That could be trouble even against the Cavaliers (22-47), who have the league's third-fewest wins but are averaging a league-low 12.9 turnovers since New Year's Day. Cleveland is also forcing an average of 16.6 turnovers in its last five games.

Boston coughed up 20 turnovers Tuesday leading to 17 points for the Knicks.

"We've got to get back to playing with more energy, forcing a lot of turnovers like we were three or four weeks ago," said Paul Pierce, averaging 20.4 points on 53.0 percent shooting over his last 14 games. "Turning the ball over less if we're going to give ourselves a chance."

After blowing a 27-point lead to Miami last Wednesday, things got even worse for the Cavaliers in a 116-78 loss to Houston on Friday - their largest margin of defeat this season.

"As I told our guys, it was the first game in a long time that I saw us being very disconnected on both ends of the floor," coach Byron Scott said.

Cleveland is being outrebounded by an average of 9.4 during its slide while letting opponents average 108.0 points on 50.6 percent shooting. Friday marked the ninth time in 11 games the Cavaliers were held to less than 100 points.

Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and Dion Waiters (knee) have both been ruled out. Irving, who has missed six straight, may miss the rest of the season, while Waiters is expected to be re-evaluated this week, but he's out indefinitely after missing the last two contests.

For the Celtics, Jeff Green continues to play well since making his first start of the season on Feb. 22, averaging 15.9 points in 16 games.

The teams split two earlier meetings this season, with Pierce notching a season-high 40 points on 13-of-16 shooting in a 103-91 win on Dec. 19. But he struggled in a 95-90 loss in Cleveland on Jan. 22, going 3 of 15 for 12 points with four turnovers. Irving had 40 points in that game.
