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.
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.

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


Boston (0-2) at Detroit (1-1), 6:00 p.m. EDT

While Josh Smith has been solid, the Detroit Pistons may become even more dangerous on the offensive end with their other big-name acquisition on the court.

Brandon Jennings could make his season debut when the Pistons go for a fifth consecutive home victory over the winless Boston Celtics on Sunday night.

Acquired in a sign-and-trade with Milwaukee this summer, Jennings has yet to play due to an impacted wisdom tooth and hairline fracture in his jaw. Jennings, who has averaged 17.0 points in his four NBA seasons, is considered a game-time decision.

"It's just a process," he told the team's official website. "When you have a broken jaw, you can't just come back and start chewing everything. I'm still eating soft food right now."

Jennings could further boost a Pistons team that's shot 48.5 percent in splitting its first two games. After beating Washington 113-102 on Wednesday, Detroit fell 111-108 in overtime at Memphis on Friday.

"(Friday) night was a good opportunity for us to see where we are to see if we can compete with a team that was in the Western Conference finals," Jennings said. "I took a lot of confidence off of that, to know we're going to be pretty good this year."

Smith shot 7 of 23 and had 19 points against the Grizzlies, but added eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and three blocks. Andre Drummond posted 12 points and 16 boards while Greg Monroe added 16 and eight.

"I think we have a dominant frontcourt, so it's going to be important that we get those guys the ball, especially Greg Monroe and Josh Smith," Jennings said. "I definitely have been paying attention. This year, my goal is to live in the paint. That way, I can make things happen for everybody."

The Pistons now turn their attention to Boston (0-2), which has been outscored by an average of 15.5 points during a four-game losing streak at Detroit.

The Celtics are trying to avoid losing their first three games for the second time in three seasons. They blew a 22-point lead in the second half of a 105-98 defeat to Milwaukee on Friday.

"I want losing to hurt, first and foremost," coach Brad Stevens said. "Losing should hurt. But I don't want it to be something that lingers. You lose, you learn from it, and you move on."

Undrafted rookie Vitor Faverani had 12 points, 18 rebounds and six blocks, but Jeff Green shot 4 of 13 and had 13 points.

"We can't play like that. It all starts with me," said Green, who scored 25 in a 93-87 loss at Toronto on Wednesday. "We've got to get it going in the right direction and I take responsibility for that."

Despite the Celtics' poor start, Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks doesn't expect his team to take them lightly.

"Our mindset is that it doesn't matter who we're playing. We have to try to play a consistent style of basketball," Cheeks said. "I don't think it's about the no-name guys on Boston's team. ... I don't think we'll have a letdown because we're trying to get to that area."

Smith averaged 18.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists in his last seven regular-season games against Boston while with Atlanta. Jennings was limited to 9.7 points while shooting 29.4 percent in his last three against the Celtics.
