KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: It was a rocky offseason for JEFF TEAGUE, who looked like a goner at one point. Instead, he'll be the focal point of Atlanta's offense . . . Coming off a torn ACL, resident gunner LOUIS WILLIAMS is a question mark entering the season, especially as a guy who relied so much on quickness and explosiveness. He may not be right again until 2014-15 . . . JOHN JENKINS was rock solid as a rookie and should see a bump in playing time with DeShawn Stevenson gone. Jenkins is a legit shooter who can hold his own defensively . . . Rookie DENNIS SCHRODER is a year or two away from consistent minutes, but the penniless man's Rajon Rondo comparisons aren't off . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM is a middling talent destined for a minor role. FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was lost in the shuffle in Utah last year, but he'll be a significant part of this offense in Atlanta. He's a well-rounded power forward and may prove to be a better fit than Josh Smith was for the Hawks . . . KYLE KORVER is coming off a huge year and will play major minutes at both wing spots again . . . A shadow of his former self, ELTON BRAND will rotate in at power forward and center . . . This generation's junkyard dog, DEMARRE CARROLL gives Atlanta some defensive options on the wing and energy off the bench. Outside of some transition baskets, he's a non-factor on offense . . . Euro veteran PERO ANTIC is a finesse stretch four who provides frontcourt depth. CENTERS: After playing a lot of power forward alongside Zaza Pachulia last year, AL HORFORD will spend most of this season at center. With Josh Smith gone, he's poised to have his biggest offensive numbers ever . . . GUSTAVO AYON has proven capable of eating up some space on the second unit. He'll be the second big off the bench after Elton Brand.

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

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Boston (4-9) at Atlanta (7-5), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Looking to avoid their worst skid since before the formation of the Big Three, the Boston Celtics aren't likely to find things any easier during this road-heavy stretch.

The offensively-challenged Celtics, in the midst of playing five of six away from home, will try to avert a seventh straight loss Saturday night when they visit an Atlanta Hawks team that has tightened up its defense of late.

Since averaging 104.8 points on 47.8 percent shooting during a surprising four-game winning streak, Boston (4-10) has slumped with 87.8 points per game and a 41.4 field-goal percentage while dropping its last six by an average of 14.5 points.

Following Wednesday's 104-93 loss at San Antonio, the Celtics put up their second-lowest point total despite shooting 50.7 percent in Friday's 97-82 home loss to Indiana. The Pacers lead the NBA in points against at 86.8 per game, while the Spurs top the Western Conference at 89.3.

"We passed (the Pacers) the ball too much," coach Brad Stevens said. "That probably had a lot to do with our shot selection."

The surging Hawks (8-5) could present another tough test after limiting opponents to 94.3 points during a 6-2 stretch. Atlanta had given up 105.4 over its first five contests.

The Hawks held the Pistons to 42.9 percent shooting - including 3 of 13 from 3-point range - in Friday's 96-89 win that gave them a sweep of a home-and-home set.

Boston hasn't lost seven straight since April 4-15, 2007, before Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were acquired that summer to join Paul Pierce. The Celtics have struggled in Atlanta dating to their glory years, dropping 46 of their last 64 there, including the playoffs.

Jordan Crawford led Boston with a season-high 24 points on 10-of-12 shooting in Friday's loss, while Jeff Green, averaging a team-high 15.2 points, added 20.

Green has scored 18.7 per game on 51.3 percent shooting - including 6 for 11 from 3-point range - in his last three against the Hawks. His 27 points helped Boston to a 118-107 win over visiting Atlanta in the most recent meeting on March 29. The Celtics took three of four against the Hawks last season.

Atlanta's Al Horford, who had 17 points and 11 boards Friday, totaled 46 points and 26 rebounds in consecutive meetings with the Celtics last season before sitting out the final matchup because of a stomach illness.

Jeff Teague scored 20.8 per game on 55.2 percent shooting in last season's series with Boston. He had 18 points, nine assists and one key block on Brandon Jennings' layup attempt with 1:41 remaining in Friday's win.

"I knew coach (Mike Budenholzer) was going to show it on film, so I had to make sure to get back and make an attempt on it, either foul him or make a good block, and I was able to meet him at the rim," Teague told the league's official website.

The Hawks, averaging 101.8 points and ranking near the top of the league with a 47.3 field-goal percentage, will try to capitalize on Boston's recent defensive struggles. The Celtics have given up 105.0 points on 48.3 percent shooting over their last five games.

Boston could be without rookie Kelly Olynyk after he left Friday's game because of a sprained right ankle.

The Celtics have won seven of nine overall against Atlanta, including their 4-2 series win in the first round of the 2012 playoffs.
