A preview of Monday night's game between the Clippers and Celtics.

Time: 4:30 PDT.

On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 710.

Where: TD Banknorth Garden.

Records: Clippers 17-53, Celtics 53-18.

Record vs. Celtics: 1-0.

Update: Not even a month ago did this score -- Clippers 93, Celtics 91 -- cause a double take around the league. The Clippers even hung on despite nearly squandering a big lead against the Celtics, who were playing without Kevin Garnett. But the Clippers have won only twice since that night at Staples Center, and Boston has returned to being Boston, more or less, winning its last three games. And Garnett is back under limited-time constraints. Al Thornton, who has been hampered by a sore right shoulder, sat out against Toronto on Sunday and is questionable.
