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.
BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS will surely take on more of a distributor role this year, but he's still this team's best option from three-point range, as well . . . JOE JOHNSON started to break down last season, so along with fewer shots (with the upgrade to the rest of the roster), he figures to play fewer regular-season minutes as well . . . JASON TERRY is clearly in the decline phase of his career, but is still the top scoring option among Brooklyn's second unit . . . ALAN ANDERSON gives them another shooter off the bench . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON steps into the back-up point guard spot vacated by C.J. Watson. The injury-prone vet will be one of the more rarely used back-up PGs . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR will be a non-factor. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE still has something left in the tank. While his athleticism is fading, he's still a cagey scorer who can also play some point forward to set up Williams . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO will be a Swiss army knife sixth man and should see plenty of starts as new head coach Jason Kidd rotates which veterans rest . . . REGGIE EVANS was retained for his rebounding ability and willingness to look ridiculous while flopping . . . ANDRAY BLATCHE will continue to settle in as a second-unit big. He's a name to remember for the future, as Kevin Garnett doesn't have much left in the tank . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC will be a seldom-used option as a stretch four . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA is still years away from contributing, and the influx of veterans will further delay his development. CENTERS: Last year did a lot to assuage durability concerns for BROOK LOPEZ. He's highly skilled, and he may be forced to grab more rebounds now that Reggie Evans is on the second unit . . . KEVIN GARNETT will start at power forward. He's still an effective pick-and-pop shooter and pick-and-roll defender, but he'll have to rest often during the regular season . . . MASON PLUMLEE is in no position to help this season.

*Celtics-Nets Preview* ======================


Boston (10-12) at Brooklyn (6-14), 7:30 p.m. EDT

After the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics completed their blockbuster trade last summer, few likely expected Boston to be atop the Atlantic Division with Brooklyn fighting to stay out of last place.

But that's exactly where these clubs stand heading into Tuesday night's meeting in Brooklyn.

Agreed upon in principle on the night of the draft, the teams officially completed a deal in July that sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry from Boston to Brooklyn in exchange for Gerald Wallace, MarShon Brooks, Kris Humphries, Keith Bogans, Kris Joseph and first-round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

Brooklyn was clearly mortgaging its future while trying to achieve immediate success.

"This team will be dazzling to watch and tough to compete against," owner Mikhail Prokhorov said in a statement.

Prokhorov's declaration has been a fry cry from reality under first-year coach Jason Kidd. The 6-14 Nets are only ahead of the 5-14 Knicks in the Atlantic Division, while surprising Boston (10-12) sits in first place.

Garnett is averaging career lows with 6.4 points per game on 36.2 percent shooting. Pierce was also averaging personal worsts with 12.4 points and a 36.8 field-goal percentage before missing the last five games due to a non-displaced fracture in his right hand. There's a chance he could play Tuesday against the club he scored more than 24,000 points for over 15 seasons, though he's considered doubtful.

The Nets should be bolstered by the return of point guard Deron Williams, who is expected to play for the first time since re-injuring his left ankle Nov. 20. Timetables are still unclear for the returns of Terry (knee) and Andrei Kirilenko (back).

However, even as Brooklyn gets healthier, the team will likely need more time to properly gel together.

"Chemistry just doesn't snap and you wave a magic wand and, 'Voila!'" Garnett, who will be playing his first game versus Boston since March 4, 2007, told the team's website. "Those things play a big part."

Brook Lopez has seemingly been the one constant for the Nets, scoring a season-high 32 points and going 11 of 13 from the field in a 90-82 win in Milwaukee on Saturday despite facing numerous double teams.

"That's who he is," Kidd said of Lopez, whose 20.6 scoring average is the highest of his career. "He's a guy who demands attention. Again, he's seen a lot of double teams in his young career. He's making all the right plays. He's letting guys get to their spots."

The youth-laden Celtics - whose oldest starter is the 28-year-old Brandon Bass - have won three in a row and six of eight. Their 114-73 victory over the Knicks on Sunday was the league's most lopsided game this season.

Converted point guard Jordan Crawford had 23 points on a career-high six 3-pointers to go along with seven assists. He's averaging 23.3 points over his last three contests while shooting 61.0 percent from the field.

"It was just fun to get a win like that in here because I've been on the other side of it a couple times," Crawford said. "It's good to get a win against the division."

The Celtics enjoyed another hot start, racing out to a 25-3 lead. They're averaging 31.2 points in the first quarter of their last five games while shooting 57.8 percent and holding opponents to 15.6 points.

Joe Johnson is averaging 20.5 points in his last 11 games versus Boston while shooting 48.3 percent from 3-point range.

The Celtics will be in for another reunion Wednesday when they welcome home former coach Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers.
