MIAMI: LAST SEASON: 39-43, finished in 10th place in Eastern Conference.
COACH: Erik Spoelstra (12th season, 523-363).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Justise Winslow (12.6 ppg), G Dion Waiters (12.0), G Jimmy Butler (18.7 with Minnesota and Philadelphia), F Kelly Olynyk (10.0), C Bam Adebayo (8.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Dwyane Wade, G Josh Richardson, C Hassan Whiteside, G Rodney McGruder.
KEY ADDITIONS: Butler, G Tyler Herro, F-C Meyers Leonard.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler gets a team to call his own, and assumes the role of locker-room leader in the place of Wade ' who retired after 16 seasons, most of them with Miami. The Heat are hoping for healthier years from Waiters and PG Goran Dragic, after both missed about half of last season. Herro, the No. 13 pick in this year's draft, had a strong summer league and followed that up with big numbers in the preseason so he'll clearly be in the mix somewhere. Adebayo enters his first full year as the starting center, a job he won down the stretch last season, and will get help from fellow bigs Olynyk and Leonard. Winslow wants to be a leader for the group, but has missed 94 games in the last three seasons.
OUTLOOK: The Heat haven't won a playoff series since 2016 and are only 124-122 over the last three seasons, yet believe they can get back into more of a postseason-contender role ' even without Wade, who was the team's best player last season. Getting Butler was a major boost and he'll unquestionably be the key to everything Miami does, though he won't be asked to carry the load by himself. Defense wasn't the problem for Miami last season after the Heat finished No. 2 in the league in points allowed; the biggest issue was inconsistent offense, which figures to get better.
LA LAKERS: LAST SEASON: 37-45, finished 10th in Western Conference.
COACH: Frank Vogel (first season with Lakers; ninth season overall, 304-291).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Rajon Rondo (9.2 ppg), G Danny Green (10.3 with Toronto), F LeBron James (27.4), F Anthony Davis (25.9 with New Orleans), C JaVale McGee (12.0).
KEY LOSSES: F Brandon Ingram, G Lonzo Ball, G Josh Hart, G Lance Stephenson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Davis, Green, C Dwight Howard, G Avery Bradley, F Jared Dudley, G Quinn Cook.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The evolving chemistry between James and Davis will be at the forefront, but the Lakers' success in creating an immediate title contender could hinge on the supporting cast. Green must keep the outside shooting proficiency he demonstrated last season for Toronto, while Kyle Kuzma must find a role on a reconfigured roster. The Lakers' biggest early-season subplot of all might be around Howard, whose return to LA after six seasons away could be greeted by boos or cheers.
OUTLOOK: An aspiring super team takes shape around James and Davis, who joined forces to do a whole lot more than end the Lakers' franchise-record playoff drought at six years. LA expects to be a title contender with two of the NBA's best players anchoring a lineup featuring perimeter shooting from Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, fast-break proficiency from Alex Caruso and Kuzma, and sturdy defense from Bradley, Rondo and McGee. Vogel's ability to fold this talent into a cohesive unit over the next few months will determine whether the Lakers can do something special in the spring.

Rested Lakers welcome Butler, upstart Heat

The Los Angeles Lakers, who have the longest active win streak in the Western Conference at six games, play host to the Miami Heat on Friday night.

And they'll get the Heat on the second night of a road back-to-back as Miami won 124-108 at Phoenix on Thursday night.

The Lakers, who have been off since Tuesday, are 3-0 at home this season. Lakers star LeBron James, who led Miami to two NBA titles in 2012 & '13, has produced three straight triple-doubles.

James is the first Lakers player to post three straight triple-doubles since Magic Johnson in 1987.

"A triple-double means absolutely nothing to me if it doesn't come in a win," James told reporters. "It's about team success."

The Lakers haven't lost since their season opener on Oct. 23 against Los Angeles Clippers -- a game in which the Lakers were the road team despite playing in Staples Center -- and James on that night said: "We have a lot of room to improve."

Most of that improvement has come in the coordination between the Lakers' two superstars: James and Anthony Davis, acquired from the New Orleans Pelicans in a trade that was completed on July 6.

James is averaging 26.1 points, a team-high 11.1 assists and 8.3 rebounds. Davis leads the Lakers in points (26.6), rebounds (10.9) and blocks (3.0).

Meanwhile, Miami is off to a promising start at 6-2. And no game better illustrates the Heat's early success than Sunday night, when Miami thrashed the Houston Rockets 129-100.

"Surprising? Not surprising to me," Heat forward Meyers Leonard said after that Rockets game of the Heat's play thus far.

In Thursday's win over Phoenix, forward Jimmy Butler -- Miami's biggest offseason acquisition -- went off for 34 points. His 30 first-half points came on 9-for-10 shooting from the floor, including 2-for-2 on 3-pointers. Butler also made 10-of-10 on free throws to complete the highest-scoring first half of his stellar career.

The Heat got some other good performances on Thursday, including 15 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and five steals from center Bam Adebayo.

Miami's bench was led by former Suns guard Goran Dragic, who poured in 25 points, hitting 5 of 7 3-pointers and adding six rebounds and four assists. He scored 20 of his 25 in the second half. And Heat rookie guard and first-round pick Tyler Herro added 15 points, going 3-for-4 on 3-pointers.

Overall, the Heat shot 54.9 percent from the floor, including 15 of 28 on 3-pointers (53.6 percent).

Even so, the Heat are playing a bit short-handed as starting forward Justise Winslow sat out Thursday's game while in the concussion protocol following a collision with Denver forward Paul Millsap on Tuesday. It was Winslow's first game after missing the previous two with lower-back stiffness.

In addition, Heat backup forward Derrick Jones, who missed the previous four games with a groin injury, left Thursday's game with a hip strain.

The Lakers, on the other hand, are getting healthier.

Wing Kyle Kuzma, who averaged 18.7 points last season, has played the last three games after missed the first four of this season because of an injured right ankle.

In his most recent game Tuesday, Kuzma scored a season-high 15 points on 7-of-16 shooting in a win over the Chicago Bulls, though he made only 1 of 8 3-point shots.

"I'm getting there," Kuzma told reporters of his performance. "It's a process. It's about being patient. I haven't played much basketball since August."

Lakers guard Avery Bradley, who missed the Bulls game due to a contusion on his right leg, may be ready for Miami. He is averaging 10.7 points and 1.3 steals.
