KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."
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.

*Hawks-Celtics Preview* =======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Atlanta (40-32) at Boston (37-34), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Just when it appeared the Boston Celtics would match their longest losing streak of the season, Jeff Green found a way to prevent it from happening.

Now the Celtics look to make up some ground on the team directly ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings as they try to extend the Atlanta Hawks' woes in Boston on Friday night.

With 2.1 seconds left, Green drove to the basket and would score the game-winner at the horn as Boston (37-34) snapped a five-game losing streak with a 93-92 win at Cleveland on Wednesday.

Green, getting major minutes with Kevin Garnett out of the lineup, finished with 21 points and seven rebounds. He's averaging 21.4 points on 52.6 percent shooting - including 12 for 23 from 3-point range - in seven starts this season.

"Now we have another guy that's gaining confidence at the end of games and knows that he can get it done," said Paul Pierce, who added 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Green is likely to continue starting in place of Garnett, who has missed the last three games and five of seven with inflammation in his left ankle. He's expected to be out until at least next week.

The Celtics stormed back from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit against the Cavaliers to avoid equaling the season-high six-game skid they suffered Jan. 16-25.

"It was a huge win," Pierce said. "We didn't play well from the second quarter on, but we found a way. It seemed like we were mentally fatigued and physically fatigued, but we put it all together at the end."

Now the Celtics have an opportunity to pick up a full game on the Hawks, who lead Boston by 2 1/2 games for sixth place in the East.

While the Celtics aren't completely out of the chase for home-court advantage in the first round, the Hawks (40-32) have a much better shot at it. They're in a virtual tie with Chicago for the fifth seed and trail fourth-place Brooklyn by 2 1/2 games.

Atlanta secured a playoff berth for a sixth straight season with a 107-88 victory at Toronto on Wednesday.

Al Horford led the way with 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Jeff Teague added 24 points and 13 assists.

"We just want to be in the best position that we can, whatever that is," said Horford, who has totaled 46 points and 26 rebounds in the last two meetings with the Celtics.

Both of those games went past regulation. The Hawks overcame a 27-point deficit to win 123-111 in double-overtime Jan. 25, and they rallied from 12 down in the fourth quarter at Boston on March 8 only to lose 107-102 in overtime.

That was the Hawks' sixth consecutive road loss in the series, though three of those games went to overtime. They have dropped 15 of 17 in Boston, including the 2008 and 2012 playoffs.

Boston leads this season's series 2-1, with Pierce averaging 26.5 points in the two wins and getting held to 12 on 4-of-13 shooting in the loss.

Teague has averaged 22.0 points on 55.6 percent shooting in the three meetings.

Celtics guard Courtney Lee will be a game-time decision after sitting out the last three games because of a sprained left ankle.
