UTAH: GUARDS: TREY BURKE is a savvy floor general who can shoot, but he's also short and a mediocre athlete (and we've seen how that's worked out for Brandon Knight). He'll step right in at the point, but immediate success is hardly guaranteed . . . ALEC BURKS is locked in at the two. He'll be able to hang in defensively, and he's a decent ball-handler and passer. His shaky jumper is an issue . . . BRANDON RUSH returns from an ACL tear and could emerge as the sixth man . . . JOHN LUCAS III is here as a Plan B at the point and to help mentor Burke a bit . . . IAN CLARK won't see a lot of action as a rookie, but he can play either guard spot. FORWARDS: DERRICK FAVORS will run into foul trouble, but he will be a nightly double-double threat and rim protector . . . GORDON HAYWARD becomes Utah's No. 1 option on offense. He'll struggle to create his own shot with defenses focusing on him, but he is a knock-down, three-point shooter who's improving off the dribble . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS is coming off heel surgery and will miss at least the first month of the season. He's not a part of Utah's long-term plans, but will likely see minutes due to the team's lack of depth . . . RICHARD JEFFERSON is a player/coach at this point in his career . . . JEREMY EVANS will be brainstorming for the dunk contest. CENTERS: ENES KANTER is a major upgrade over Al Jefferson as a defender and in the team concept on offense. He immediately becomes one of the league's better starting centers . . . ANDRIS BIEDRINS at least has a chance to reestablish himself as a capable back-up . . . RUDY GOBERT has freakish size, but he's a major project who is nowhere near ready to contribute.
BOSTON: GUARDS: RAJON RONDO is the last man standing in Boston. Coming off a torn ACL and with a weakened supporting cast, it's going to be a long year . . . AVERY BRADLEY is the favorite to start alongside Rondo. He's still lost on offense, but his defense will be much needed . . . COURTNEY LEE continues to tease with flashes of talent, but hasn't shown consistency and is no longer 'young' . . . JORDAN CRAWFORD will hoist a lot of shots . . . MARSHON BROOKS fell out of favor in Brooklyn and is just hanging on to an NBA roster spot . . . KEITH BOGANS is in Boston because a new deal made the numbers work on the Nets trade . . . Local product PHIL PRESSEY, an undersized point guard, will try to stick as a back-up. FORWARDS: Suddenly, JEFF GREEN is Boston's first option on offense. He showed an ability to score with 20.1 PPG over 17 starts last season, but he'll be in for a whole new world of attention as the only legitimate scorer on this team . . . BRANDON BASS should continue to hold down the power forward spot, and he'll get to take more shots with the team rebuilding . . . Durability is a major issue for JARED SULLINGER, but he has a chance to play big minutes for a team in need of his offensive skill set . . . A washed-up vet with arguably the worst contract in the NBA, GERALD WALLACE is of little use to the Celtics (or any other team) . . . KRIS HUMPHRIES is also dead weight, but is a more enticing trade chip due to an expiring contract. CENTERS: Rookie KELLY OLYNYK is going to get pushed around, but he has some rare shooting and ball-handling skills for a 7-footer. Boston has little to lose by letting him learn on the job . . . VITOR FAVERANI is a tough-nosed Euro import who gives them insurance behind Olynyk.

*Jazz-Celtics Preview* ======================


Utah (0-3) at Boston (0-4), 7:30 p.m. EDT

While things haven't gone well early on for the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics, one of these proud franchises is certain to end its historic season-opening losing streak.

The Celtics are hoping to avert their worst start in 67 years Wednesday night when they host a Utah team trying to avoid dropping its first five games for the first time since 1974-75.

With last year's leading scorers Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett now in Brooklyn, the Celtics (0-4) have struggled to find a new identity under rookie coach Brad Stevens.

They're shooting a respectable 45.5 percent from the field, but have made just 17 of 65 (26.2 percent) from 3-point range and rank near the bottom of the league with 87.5 points.

Avery Bradley, Vitor Faverani and Kelly Olynyk have yet to find their stroke, missing a combined 19 of 21 attempts from beyond the arc. Bradley, filling in for injured All-Star Rajon Rondo at point guard, also has committed a team-worst 15 turnovers.

Boston is averaging a league-worst 21.0 miscues per game after its 21 on Monday helped Memphis erase a six-point deficit with just under nine minutes remaining en route to a 95-88 victory.

That's an area where the Celtics hope to improve as they try to avoid their first 0-5 start since 1946-47.

"Our biggest thing right now is turning the ball over, there's no question about it," said Stevens, who looks to guide Boston to its sixth straight win over Utah. "If we don't do that, we're going to have a better chance of winning."

The Jazz (0-4), among the league's worst with 19.8 turnovers per game, had 21 in a 104-88 loss at Brooklyn on Tuesday. They had lost their first three games by an average of 3.6 points, but trailed the Nets by as many as 26.

Now they'll attempt to avoid the franchise's worst start since dropping their first 11 games 39 years ago when they still played in New Orleans.

"Losing hurts. It should hurt," coach Tyrone Corbin said. "It's four straight losses in the first four straight games. Nobody is going to feel sorry for us."

Corbin's club hasn't been able to find a rhythm offensively, shooting 40.4 percent from the floor and 19 of 79 (24.1 percent) from long range while scoring 90.8 per game.

Following his 1-for-7 performance against his former team, Richard Jefferson has gone 11 for 33 from the field and 5 for 18 from 3-point range.

Enes Kanter has been a bright spot, averaging a team-leading 17.8 points and 9.5 rebounds. He scored 21 on 9-of-12 shooting with eight boards but also had seven turnovers in Tuesday's loss.

Gordon Hayward finished with a season-high 22 points against the Nets. He's averaging 19.7 points on 51.3 percent shooting - including 7 of 10 from behind the arc - in his last three games in this matchup.

In the most recent meeting, Bradley had 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting in Boston's 110-107 overtime win Feb. 25 in Utah.

Jeff Green had six points on 3 of 10 from the field in that contest, but had 22 points Monday to raise his team-best average to 16.8.

The Celtics have won five straight at home against the Jazz, who haven't won in Boston since March 14, 2008.
