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.
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.

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


Atlanta (26-30) at Boston (19-39), 7:30 p.m. EDT

After putting an end to their season-worst skid, the Atlanta Hawks squandered a chance at a second straight victory with sloppy play down the stretch.

But even a mediocre performance from the banged-up squad might be enough to overcome the sputtering Boston Celtics.

Atlanta seeks just its second win in 11 contests Wednesday night when it visits Boston.

The Hawks (26-30) put the brakes on an eight-game losing streak Saturday with a 107-98 victory over New York. They appeared to be in good shape for another on Tuesday, leading Chicago by as many as 14 points in the first quarter. Atlanta still had a two-point lead with 1:06 left but committed turnovers in its final four possessions - two by Jeff Teague - in a 107-103 defeat.

Chicago finished with 20 points off the Hawks' 16 turnovers, and Atlanta's opponents are averaging 19.6 points off turnovers during the club's 1-9 stretch.

Coach Mike Budenholzer took issue with one of those final turnovers, complaining about the lack of a foul call when Mike Scott was stripped by Joakim Noah with eight seconds left. Scott said Noah hit him on the arm.

"Do I think he was fouled?" Budenholzer asked after the game. "I just looked at it, and yes I do."

Budenholzer said he was otherwise satisfied with the effort level from his team, which got 26 points from Teague and was without All-Star Paul Millsap for the second straight game due to a right knee contusion. Atlanta's frontcourt was already depleted by the losses of Pero Antic (ankle) and Gustavo Ayon (shoulder), who sat out their 15th and fourth straight games, respectively. All three are expected to miss Wednesday's contest as well.

Scott also cooled off considerably, finishing with 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting after totaling 50 over his last two games.

As difficult as things have been for the Hawks lately, the Celtics (19-39) are all but eliminated from playoff contention and have lost five in a row as they continue to struggle defensively.

Jeff Green and Kelly Olynyk each had 21 points at Utah on Monday, but Boston allowed the Jazz to shoot 55.0 percent in a 110-98 defeat, capping a winless four-game trip.

The Celtics are allowing 104.0 points per game on 49.8 percent shooting during their five-game skid after limiting opponents to an average of 94.8 points on 41.9 percent in winning four of the previous five. However, those victories came against Orlando, Philadelphia, Sacramento and Milwaukee - teams with a combined 63-166 record.

Boston is also dealing with its own injury issues, with leading rebounder Jared Sullinger (concussion) and second-leading scorer Avery Bradley (ankle) already ruled out for this contest.

"We're just trying to keep our heads up, keep working," said Olynyk, who bounced back after totaling 15 points on 6-of-22 shooting over his three previous games. "We're banged up."

These clubs split two meetings earlier in the season, each winning on the road. Both teams were scoreless after Teague's free throws with 1:30 left in provided the final points in a 92-91 Atlanta victory on New Year's Eve. Millsap scored a season-high 34 and grabbed 15 rebounds.

The Celtics had won four straight meetings in Boston prior to that contest.
