TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY was banged up last season, but he enters this year healthy and has the potential to be one of the league's best two-way point guards . . . DEMAR DEROZAN does a nice job attacking, but he's a flawed player unless he develops a jump shot . . . The Raptors want TERRENCE ROSS to attack the basket more often. But whether he develops a three-point shot could determine where he fits into this rotation . . . After a disastrous season in Indiana, D.J. AUGUSTIN will have to earn his rotation spot. Toronto could use his shooting, though . . . DWIGHT BUYCKS comes back from Europe to back up Lowry . . . Versatile JULYAN STONE is an interesting bit piece, as he reunites with GM Masai Ujiri, who brought him to Denver. FORWARDS: Despite all that talent, RUDY GAY's poor shot selection and disinterested defense will have him on the trading block . . . AMIR JOHNSON will get another chance at full-time minutes. Despite some inconsistency, he still has the upside to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH brings toughness and a decent mid-range jumper. He's a second-unit talent, but could challenge Johnson for minutes . . . LANDRY FIELDS is a well-compensated reserve . . . STEVE NOVAK gives them a legitimate shooter among the second unit . . . Toronto will try to shake some of that upside out of AUSTIN DAYE . . . QUINCY ACY will move to the three, likely making this a redshirt year. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS is set to become Toronto's new centerpiece. Talented enough for them to run the offense through him, he's rapidly improving on both ends of the court . . . AARON GRAY will stick around as a decent back-up, a 7-footer who can get in the way defensively.
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.

*Raptors-Celtics Preview* =========================


Toronto (39-30) at Boston (23-47), 7:30 p.m. EDT

If they don't step it up, the slumping Toronto Raptors could be in danger of losing control of the Atlantic Division.

Things aren't about to get any easier in Boston, where they haven't won in over six years.

The Raptors try to avoid a 12th consecutive road loss to the Celtics as these teams open a home-and-home set Wednesday night.

Toronto (39-31) is coming off Tuesday's 102-100 loss at Cleveland, its fourth defeat in six games. The Raptors are still all but certain to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007-08, but they suddenly find themselves just 1 1/2 games ahead of second-place Brooklyn with three weeks left in the regular season.

"We're not good enough to scoreboard watch," coach Dwane Casey said. "We've got to take care of our business at hand. If we don't do that, we're not going to out-talent anybody by just showing up and showing our press clippings. We've got to come out and do all the dirty work, be a desperate team, play that way or we struggle."

Kyle Lowry had 22 points and 10 assists for Toronto, which trailed by as many as 21 before rallying late. The Raptors had a chance to tie with 1.9 seconds left, but Greivis Vasquez turned the ball over after losing his footing.

"I'll take responsibility. I'm not going to run away. I'm a man," Vasquez said. "I wish I could be in that position again so we have another opportunity (Wednesday)."

Toronto and Boston have split two meetings this season, with each winning at home. Celtics forward Jared Sullinger had 25 points and a career-high 20 rebounds and Avery Bradley scored 20 as Boston held on for an 88-83 victory Jan. 15.

The Raptors have dropped 20 of 22 in Boston, including 11 straight by an average of 15.2 points. Their last road win over the Celtics came Jan. 23, 2008.

"It's easy to get up for OKC, Miami and Indiana, but the other teams are playing for something too, which is pride," said Casey, whose team hosts Boston on Friday. "That can be even more dangerous."

While the Celtics don't have much to play for, they know Toronto has plenty at stake.

"We know we've got to make adjustments when we play a team back-to-back and this is a team that wants to win the Atlantic Division, so it's going to be a scrappy game," Sullinger told the team's official website. "Win or lose, we don't have to think about the next team we play. We just know that we play Toronto. Watch the game film and do your analysis from there."

The Celtics (23-47) will take the court for the first time since Friday's 114-98 loss at Brooklyn, their sixth defeat in seven games. Bradley matched a career high with 28 points, but Boston allowed the Nets to shoot 56.4 percent.

"We weren't very good on the defensive end of the floor. When Avery Bradley started going off, we just accepted trading baskets instead of really getting stops," said coach Brad Stevens, whose team was outscored 62-30 in the paint.

Rajon Rondo has recorded a 72-10 assist-to-turnover ratio over his last six games. He's averaged just 9.0 points while shooting 29.9 percent during that stretch, though.
