DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.
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.

*Pistons-Celtics Preview* =========================

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

Josh Smith has posted back-to-back 30-point efforts for the second time in his career.

Reaching that total again could be difficult in a city where he has had trouble in the past.

Smith and the Detroit Pistons look to continue their recent road success when they meet the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.

Detroit (12-14) enters after splitting two games against the league's best teams, falling 111-109 in overtime at home to Portland on Sunday before ending Indiana's 11-0 home start the next night with a 101-96 victory.

Smith scored 31 against the Trail Blazers before a 30-point effort versus a Pacers team that leads the NBA in field-goal percentage defense.

"We keep putting him on the block and he's being aggressive, attacking the rim," coach Maurice Cheeks told the Pistons' official website. "He's getting a ton of opportunities. He's just playing a full basketball game."

The outburst is a welcome one for Smith, who is averaging 15.0 points - his lowest mark in eight seasons.

"We're forming an identity ourselves," Smith said. "That has to be being a physical team, try to dominate the paint."

Smith, though, is a career 39.1 percent shooter in Boston for his second-lowest mark in an Eastern Conference city. That doesn't include six postseason games there in which he averaged 12.8 points on 32.1 percent shooting and his Atlanta Hawks lost every time.

The Celtics (12-14) are still expecting a tough matchup with Smith, whose other set of back-to-back 30-point games came March 21-23, 2012.

"Josh Smith is playing well, that Indiana game was his second 30-point game so we've got to limit him as much as possible," Boston guard Courtney Lee said.

The Pistons have captured five of their last six road games but have dropped five of six in Boston. The Celtics have won five of six at home overall.

Detroit could be confident in this contest after winning 87-77 at home over the Celtics on Nov. 3. That remains Boston's lowest point total.

Even though the Celtics have the same record as the Pistons, coach Brad Stevens made Detroit sound like title contenders at Tuesday's practice.

"I've always thought they were one of the most talented teams, especially in the East," Stevens said. "They've got a 3-man who is playing like an All-Star in Josh Smith, who is not a normal 3-man. You've got a guy like (Greg) Monroe who's a bonafide scorer, who can get the ball on either block and score, can drive it from the elbow and score, can make mid-range shots.

"(They have) probably other than Dwight Howard the next most athletic center in the league in Andre Drummond. And then you've got perimeter guys in (Rodney) Stuckey, (Brandon) Jennings, (Chauncey) Billups, on down the line, (Will) Bynum, (Kentavious) Caldwell-Pope is playing well, that can go off. So you've got a lot of guys that can do a lot of things. They're a very formidable group in my opinion."

Detroit held a 53-38 edge in points in the paint in the first matchup. Drummond finished with 15 points - 10 on dunks - and 12 rebounds.

"I think when we played them this year in Detroit, Drummond had like eight dunks in a row, so we've got to eliminate that," said Lee, exaggerating slightly.
