KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.
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.

*Rockets-Celtics Preview* =========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Houston (24-14) at Boston (13-25), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Houston Rockets are built to score by outrunning their opponents, something Kevin McHale knows quite well.

They should have a much easier time doing that if Chandler Parsons can play.

Parsons is expected to return after a three-game absence Monday night as visiting Houston tries to send the Boston Celtics to a ninth straight loss.

Only Portland and Minnesota average more points than the Rockets' 105.3, but Houston's worst offensive performance of the season came Saturday in Atlanta, an 83-80 loss as Parsons missed his second straight game with a sore knee.

The Rockets (24-14) bounced back the next night, however, shooting 52.1 percent as four of their five starters scored at least 18 in a 114-107 win at Washington.

It wasn't all easy, as Houston saw a 25-point third-quarter lead turn into a five-point deficit. But the Rockets closed on a 17-5 run thanks to eight straight points from James Harden.

Houston finished with 22 assists, improving to 11-3 when posting at least that many.

"Our identity has got to be what you saw when we pushed, attacked and moved the ball," McHale told the team's official website. "Our identity can't be walk it up; we're just not that type of team - we're not built that way. (General Manager) Daryl Morey put together a team that's going to push and play and we've got to do that."

Getting Parsons back should help. The team's third-leading scorer at 17.2 points per game, Parsons is expected to play Monday after working out Sunday.

Houston is 2-3 without Parsons this season, averaging 99.6 points. They've averaged 106.2 points when Parsons, who has shot 53.2 percent in his last 10 games, has played.

Parsons' potential return would give Jeremy Lin another option while running the point. The guard had 18 points and eight assists against the Wizards after getting 11 and one against Atlanta.

"He was pushing it, he had a good flow going," McHale said. "We played the game (Friday) with no pace, no push. Get it up and down, and Jeremy is very good at pushing it."

Lin had 11 points and five assists off the bench in a 109-85 win over Boston on Nov. 19.

Terrence Jones had a career-high 24 points with nine rebounds in that matchup, and set a personal best with 17 boards Saturday, adding 19 points and three blocks.

Houston lost its last two trips to Boston under former Celtics star McHale, but it'll see a very different team Monday. Boston (13-25) has allowed 106.4 points per game while dropping eight in a row, its longest slide since losing 18 straight from Jan. 7-Feb. 11, 2007.

Boston blew a halftime lead for the second straight night Saturday, falling 112-104 in Portland after shooting 34.0 percent in the final 24 minutes.

Brad Stevens wasn't totally discouraged, though. The Celtics stayed within single digits of the Clippers, Warriors and Trail Blazers after losing the first two games of their trip by a combined 56 points.

"You've got a shot to win against three contenders for the West, but, at the same time, those droughts are killing us," Stevens said. "I think we can get better in those. But I'm trying to figure what it is because we're really playing at such a high level the whole rest of the time. That's the encouraging part."

The Celtics won't have had much time to recover after flying cross-country following Saturday's loss, but they've made a habit of playing close games at home. Six of Boston's last seven at TD Garden have been decided by four points or fewer, a stretch in which it's gone 3-4.

Avery Bradley, who combined for 49 points against the Clippers and Blazers but was held to seven against Golden State, has totaled 18 points while missing 24 of 31 shots in two starts versus Houston.
