BOSTON: GUARDS: This offense now belongs to RAJON RONDO, and that should be especially true during the regular season . . . Even if he comes off the bench, JASON TERRY figures to see the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard. He provides some much-needed outside shooting after Ray Allen left and should challenge Paul Pierce for the team lead in shot attempts . . . Adding COURTNEY LEE was more of a move for the future. He's a fine young second-unit player for now and should be an heir apparent on one of the wings . . . AVERY BRADLEY could be out until December after shoulder surgery. As Boston's best perimeter defensive player, he could reclaim his starting job in the season's second half . . . The addition of LEANDRO BARBOSA gives Boston another veteran who can create his own offense in the second unit, something that was sorely missing in last year's playoff run. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE quietly had a great regular season last year. Though with some improved depth behind him, Rivers might have his 35-year-old All-Star wing rest more often . . . BRANDON BASS gives them another scoring option, even if he does struggle on the defensive end. He'll get full-time minutes only in certain matchups as long as the frontcourt is healthy . . . JEFF GREEN's heart condition is no longer a concern, but the tweener's role in Boston after a year off is cause for worry . . . There are already question marks surrounding rookie JARED SULLINGER's back. He's very similar to Bass: He can score out to mid-range but doesn't play much defense. Expect him to be strictly a second-unit player in his first NBA season . . . CHRIS WILCOX will provide fouls off the bench when healthy. CENTERS: The Celtics are prepared to go with KEVIN GARNETT in the middle, which was the case when they were at their best last season. His role on offense is still knocking down mid-range jumpers, and he's still an elite defensive player . . . Professional flopper JASON COLLINS will fill in nicely for the departed Greg Stiemsma . . . FAB MELO is years away from being ready to contribute (if he actually is ever ready to contribute) and DARKO MILICIC was also added via free agency for more frontcourt depth.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.

*Celtics-Thunder Preview* =========================


Boston (34-27) at Oklahoma City (46-16), 1:00 p.m. EDT

Although Jeff Green has gone through some trying times since arriving in Boston, he appears to be in a very good place ahead of his return to Oklahoma City.

The Celtics are also feeling great following five straight victories, but they'll face a major challenge keeping that run going Sunday against a Thunder team that's within striking distance of the top spot in the Western Conference.

Green will finally make his first appearance in Oklahoma City since the Thunder traded him to the Celtics in the Kendrick Perkins deal Feb. 24, 2011. The forward missed all of last season following open heart surgery to address an aortic aneurysm.

He has returned to make a strong contribution for Boston (34-27) in 2012-13, playing especially well during the Celtics' recent surge. Green is averaging 14.7 points on 50.5 percent shooting during a 14-4 stretch - coinciding with the absence of injured point guard Rajon Rondo - that has put the team in the hunt for a top-four seed in the East.

Green had the game-winning layup late in Wednesday's 83-81 victory at Indiana, and his 3-pointer in overtime helped Boston beat Atlanta 107-102 on Friday.

"We just continue to fight. In the stretch run of the season, every game is crucial," said Paul Pierce, who had 27 points, seven assists and seven rebounds against the Hawks. "Between the fourth and eighth spot, it's a difference between one or two games, so all these games are big and we understand the sense of urgency."

Oklahoma City (46-16) is chasing San Antonio for the No. 1 seed in the West. If the Thunder win this game, they would have a chance to pull even with the Spurs with a victory Monday night in San Antonio.

They've won four straight and seven of eight, and they had a chance to get their stars some rest during Friday's 116-94 rout at Charlotte. No Thunder player logged more than 25 minutes as the team built a 29-point lead and cruised.

That was especially crucial after Oklahoma City went down to the wire in a 95-94 win at New York the previous night.

"It's good to get some rest," Kevin Durant said. "That's good to get you re-energized for the next game. But it's also good that we have such a deep team."

The Thunder will be looking to avenge a 108-100 loss in Boston on Nov. 23, when Pierce had 27 points and Green added 17 in his first-ever game against Oklahoma City.

Jason Terry scored 16 on 6-of-8 shooting for the Celtics that night. He's averaging 18.2 points on 50.0 percent shooting in his last six games against the Thunder, the first five with Dallas.

Terry has had a somewhat uneven first season in Boston, but he came up big Friday with 19 points - including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 35 seconds left in overtime.

"We count on him late in games," Pierce said. "Even if he doesn't get the shot, he's such a threat late in games that you can't come off of him. He's hit so many big shots throughout his career. He understands the moment and that's why he's here."

Durant has hit 58 of 60 free-throw attempts in his last six games against Boston, averaging 32.0 points in that stretch and scoring at least 28 in each game. Russell Westbrook, though, led the Thunder with 31 in their 119-104 home win over Boston last season, the Celtics' first road loss in this series since a 2006 defeat in Seattle.
