Deron Williams, Al Jefferson Will Pose Matchup Problems for Celtics at TD Garden


Here's a tough question for you — which Celtics-Jazz matchup are you looking forward to more?

Maybe it's Rajon Rondo clashing with Deron Williams — it's arguably the NBA's best playmaking point guard against its most aggressive, physical floor general. Sparks are sure to fly when these two meet.

Or perhaps it's Kevin Garnett and Al Jefferson, two dominating big men who were traded for each other by the C's and Timberwolves back in 2007. KG is still an elite defender, rebounder and team leader; Big Al is one of the best scorers in the game.

Don't sleep on the Jazz's Andrei Kirilenko, the defensive stopper, or Paul Millsap, the breakout energy guy. This Utah team is loaded.

Here's the lineup card for C's-Jazz:

Rajon Rondo, PG
Ray Allen, SG
Paul Pierce, SF
Kevin Garnett, PF
Shaquille O'Neal, C

Deron Williams, PG
Raja Bell, SG
Andrei Kirilenko, SF
Paul Millsap, PF
Al Jefferson, C
