CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.

*Cavaliers-Pacers Preview* ==========================


Cleveland (4-17) at Indiana (10-11), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Cleveland Cavaliers are bringing a 14-game division losing streak into a matchup with a team they haven't beaten much of late.

There is some hope for the Cavaliers since Kyrie Irving has returned heading into Wednesday night's road contest with the Indiana Pacers.

Cleveland (5-17) hasn't beaten a Central Division foe since a 101-100 win over Detroit on Feb. 21. The Cavaliers have dropped eight of their last nine against the Pacers (10-11), including four in a row on the road - where they are 2-11 this season.

Irving is back after missing 11 games with a broken finger. He returned with 28 points and 11 assists as the Cavaliers ended a five-game skid with Tuesday's 100-94 victory over the Lakers.

"I was just staying aggressive the entire game and finding my teammates," Irving said. "I worked with the bigs in practice yesterday and told them what spots to be at and that I'd find them."

The Cavaliers limited Los Angeles to 41.3 percent shooting - the lowest percentage they have yielded in 11 games. Cleveland is last in the NBA in field-goal percentage defense at 47.8 percent.

"For 48 minutes, we played some of the best defense," coach Byron Scott said. "As I told the guys after the game, that's how we have to play."

Cleveland sported a new backcourt Tuesday with C.J. Miles getting his first start of the season. Miles came through with 28 points for his highest total in two seasons.

"I started him because he was playing really well the last three or four games, and I thought his confidence was coming back," Scott said. "The second thing was that he's been taking good shots, not trying to do too much, and letting the game come to him."

Indiana could be poised to slow down Cleveland's guards. The Pacers are limiting opponents to 41.3 percent from the field for the NBA's best mark.

The Pacers, however, enter off one of their poorer efforts on the defensive end in Sunday's 104-93 loss at Oklahoma City. Led by Kevin Durant's 27 points, the Thunder shot 48.7 percent.

"It's tough to see guys making shots when you're playing tough defense on them. That was really what it was for us," forward Paul George said.

Indiana is the league's second-worst scoring team at 90.8 points per games as it continues to struggle without swingman Danny Granger, out with a sore left knee.

"We may have a couple breakdowns here and there that we need to fix, but that is something expected with a lot of new guys and a guy like Danny out," guard George Hill said. "We have to figure out how to close games late in the game."

Cleveland was outrebounded 54-43 on Tuesday and faces another tough task with Indiana averaging a league-high 46.3 boards.

The Cavs do have the NBA's top rebounder in Anderson Varejao, who had 20 points and nine boards against the Lakers - though his streak of 12 straight games with double-digit rebounds came to an end.
