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 (23-46) at Brooklyn (35-31), 7:30 p.m. EDT

While Deron Williams has regained his confidence on the current homestand, the Brooklyn Nets have only continued to build theirs at Barclays Center.

There's little reason to believe that trend won't extend into Thursday night when the Nets seek their 11th straight home victory in a matchup with the Boston Celtics, who haven't won a road game in more than a month.

With Brooklyn trailing by three points midway through the fourth quarter Wednesday, Williams scored 11 of his 23 points in the final six minutes to key a 104-99 victory over Charlotte.

The three-time All-Star has led the surging Nets (35-31) to consecutive victories on this three-game stay at Barclays, totaling 53 points on 19-of-28 shooting with six 3-pointers.

"My confidence is getting back. That's a good thing for me," said Williams, who totaled 20 points on 6-of-22 shooting in two games prior to the homestand. "I tend to play well when my confidence is high."

Joe Johnson added 20 points and Shaun Livingston scored 17 as the Nets won for the nine time in 11 games overall. Their 10 straight home victories are the franchise's most since a 12-game streak in the 2005-06 season, and Brooklyn is a league-best 17-2 at home since Christmas.

Williams has averaged 19.5 points and hit 14 of 28 from 3-point range in six home games this month, while Johnson has scored 18.5 per game and made 18 of 33.

The Nets have moved within 2 1/2 games of Atlantic Division-leading Toronto despite being without Kevin Garnett, who hasn't played this month because of back spasms.

While Garnett misses what may be his last chance to face Boston - if he retires after the season - Paul Pierce looks to avoid another subpar outing against the team he and Garnett led to the 2008 NBA title.

Pierce has averaged 6.7 points on 6-of-24 shooting in three meetings since being traded to Brooklyn this summer, but the Nets have won two of them. Williams had 25 points in a 104-96 victory in the first matchup at Barclays on Dec. 10.

Boston (23-46) now hopes to build on Wednesday's 101-96 home win over a Miami team missing LeBron James. Avery Bradley finished with 23 points and hit a career-high six 3-pointers as the Celtics snapped a five-game losing streak.

"I just have that confidence in my shot," said Bradley, who had 22 points in the December loss in Brooklyn.

Rajon Rondo has come close to triple-doubles in the last two matchups with the Nets, averaging 16.5 points, 8.5 assists and 7.5 rebounds, and he nearly had one Wednesday with nine points, 15 assists and 10 boards.

However, he's struggled from the field in nine road games with an average of 8.7 points on 27.8 percent shooting, including 1 of 17 from 3-point range.

The Celtics have shot 39.9 percent from the floor during a seven-game road losing streak which dates back to Feb. 10. They're tied for the league's fewest road wins since Jan. 10 with a 3-18 record.
