MINNESOTA: GUARDS: Unlike last year, RICKY RUBIO should be 100 percent healthy for all of this season. He's one of the NBA's most creative playmakers. Now if only he could make a jump shot . . . KEVIN MARTIN has become much more of a catch-and-shoot player after years of attacking the basket and living at the line. He is coming off his best year shooting the ball . . . If the Wolves don't move J.J. BAREA, they'll have him in the sixth man role they initially envisioned before injuries destroyed the roster a year ago . . . ALEXEY SHVED did a nice job holding down this backcourt as a rookie last year, but he's a second-unit talent, which is the role he'll be in this season. FORWARDS: KEVIN LOVE should bounce back completely this season, as his hand injury is unlikely to linger. Lock him into the All-Star game . . . CHASE BUDINGER never got a chance to get going last season, but he's exactly the kind of spot-up shooter and savvy cutter who should thrive alongside Ricky Rubio. Unfortunately, he is sidelined with a knee injury for several months . . . COREY BREWER gives the Timberwolves a defensive specialist to platoon with Budinger. Someone has to convince him he can't shoot, though . . . With Love back, DERRICK WILLIAMS returns to the bench as a seemingly never-ending project . . . SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD seems like a low-risk, but low-reward, second-unit scorer . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM will back up both post spots. He figures to play sparingly unless injuries hit. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC signed a $60M deal in August to return to the team and hold down the low post. He's an absolute beast on the offensive boards . . . GORGUI DIENG seems ready to help off the bench. He's a bit limited athletically and on offense, but can block shots . . . RONNY TURIAF will battle Dieng for bench minutes.
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.

*Timberwolves-Celtics Preview* ==============================


Minnesota (11-12) at Boston (11-14), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to rely heavily on the outside shot.

But the way Kevin Love and company have been shooting of late, that hasn't been a problem.

They'll look to remain hot from the perimeter Monday night when they visit the Boston Celtics, who own one of the league's top 3-point defenses.

The Timberwolves (12-12) hit a season-high 12 shots in 26 attempts from long range in Sunday's 101-93 victory at Memphis. Love was 4 of 8 from beyond the arc, finishing with 30 points and nine rebounds as the team took its third win in four games. Minnesota is hitting 44.1 percent of its 3-point attempts during that stretch.

Love was coming off a season-high 42 points while going 8 of 9 from 3-point range in Friday's 117-110 loss in San Antonio. He's averaging 31.0 points over his last four games while hitting 17 of 29 from deep. Sunday's performance was just the second time this season he failed to record a double-double.

"It's crazy," said J.J. Barea, who was 3 of 5 from 3-point range. "It opens up the drive for everybody. Everybody else can play freely. You know they are going to have to pay attention the rest of the game to him."

Love and Kevin Martin have combined for 104 of Minnesota's 184 3-pointers.

The Celtics (11-14) have been one of the league's better teams in terms of defending the 3-point shot, limiting opponents to 32.5 percent, including 28.0 percent over their last three games.

However, Minnesota took a 106-88 home victory over Boston on Nov. 16 despite going 7 of 23 from 3-point range. Love was 2 of 4 and had 23 points and 12 rebounds for his fifth straight double-double in the series. Boston's offense was its own worst enemy, shooting 39.5 percent from the field while committing 22 turnovers. Avery Bradley scored 27 but leading scorer Jeff Green (16.9 ppg) was 0 for 6 with a season-low two points.

The Celtics limited the New York Knicks to 5 of 21 3-point shooting in a 90-86 home win on Friday, rallying from an 11-point deficit after squandering a 17-point first-half lead.

"I wouldn't want to go through it again, but that's exactly what our team needed," Stevens said. "We needed to have a lead, lose it, be backed up against the wall and figure out a way to win."

While Boston leads the woeful Atlantic Division, the team has struggled against Western Conference opponents, going 2-7. Its only wins are against Denver and Utah.

Martin - Minnesota's second-leading scorer at 20.6 points per game - will be trying to break out of a slump as he has totaled only 19 over his last three contests on 5-for-24 shooting. He's also struggled in his last four games versus Boston, going 15 for 47 while averaging 11.5 points.

The Celtics had won 11 straight in the series prior to dropping the last two meetings.

The Timberwolves haven't won in Boston since March 6, 2005. and are seeking their first season series sweep since 1999-2000.
