MIAMI: GUARDS: The regular season goal for DWYANE WADE is to just stay healthy. Even following knee surgery, he's still good enough to pile up numbers, but the minutes won't be there in the regular season . . . That's why the Heat brought in RAY ALLEN. He and Wade will share the floor at times, but Allen should primarily play off the bench. His role will be to knock down the wide-open threes Wade and LeBron James create . . . After all the big plays he made in the postseason, MARIO CHALMERS is entrenched as the starting point guard, despite being plagued by a bad hammy in the preseason . . . Super-quick NORRIS COLE looks like he'll become one of the NBA's better backup point guards . . . If he doesn't retire, the absurdly brittle MIKE MILLER will see limited regular-season minutes . . . TERREL HARRIS will likely make the team because he's willing to play defense. FORWARDS: While another title is their No. 1 priority, LeBRON JAMES has shown no need to rest during the regular season. He'll play full-time minutes and be in the thick of the MVP race . . . CHRIS BOSH remains integral to the offense with his ability to pull opposing bigs away from the basket. His stats don't reflect his actual value . . . SHANE BATTIER will continue to be a defensive specialist whose offensive role is limited to shooting open threes . . . UDONIS HASLEM is another guy who will get held back in the regular season. He should lead their low-post rotation . . . RASHARD LEWIS' knee problems have robbed him of athleticism . . . But Lewis should beat out fellow shooter JAMES JONES for a rotation spot . . . JARVIS VARNADO is a shot-blocking force with little to no offensive game. CENTERS: JOEL ANTHONY will continue to tag-team with Haslem in the middle. Anthony is an absolute negative on the offensive end, but he brings more size and shot-blocking than Haslem . . . DEXTER PITTMAN will be battling for a roster spot. Sexy Dexy has shown no signs of being an NBA-caliber player so far in his career . . . MICKELL GLADNESS is a better alternative than Pittman on both ends of the floor.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Heat-Hawks Preview* ====================


Miami (36-14) at Atlanta (29-22), 8:00 p.m. EDT

With the reigning MVP enjoying one of the best stretches in NBA history, the All-Star break didn't appear to come at the right time for LeBron James.

James hopes to pick up where he left off and help the Miami Heat win their eighth straight game on Wednesday night when they visit the Atlanta Hawks, who could be playing their final game with Josh Smith.

After averaging 30.8 points on 71.7 percent shooting during his run of six games with at least 30 points and 60.0 percent shooting, James came up just shy of extending his unprecedented streak in a 110-100 win at Oklahoma City on Thursday.

He finished with 39 points and shot 14-of-24 (58.3 percent) from the field, but James was merely interested in the Eastern-Conference best Heat (36-14) extending their longest winning streak of the season heading into the break.

"I just go out and play my game, and that was the result of it," James said. "It didn't bother me and it didn't matter if I got it or not. ... To win is what it's all about."

That's all Miami has done against the Hawks (29-22) lately, winning the past five meetings overall and the last six in Atlanta.

Chris Bosh had a game-high 24 points and James added 21 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists as the Heat won 95-89 at Philips Arena without a flu-ridden Dwyane Wade on Nov. 9. Wade was healthy Dec. 10 in Miami, making 11 of 13 from the field in a 101-92 victory while James added 27.

Sparked by James' historic stretch, Miami averaged 111.8 points - 8.6 above its season mark - and hit 52.0 percent from the field in its last five games before the break.

The Heat will try to continue that efficiency against an Atlanta team that allowed an average of 104.5 points over a four-game span before tightening things up in a 108-76 win at Orlando last Wednesday.

The Hawks, who won three of four heading into the break and currently are sixth in the East, may look like a completely different team by the time they take the floor Friday against Sacramento. The NBA's trade deadline is Thursday, and Smith has been one of the most-discussed names in the league's increasingly busy rumor mill.

"I'm not worried about any outside distractions, media, hearsay," said Smith, who has spent all of his eight-and-a-half seasons with Atlanta but will be a free agent come July. "I just try to come out and play my game and not worry about anything else."

Smith has played well despite the rumors, averaging 24.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and shooting 58.2 percent in his last four games.

He hasn't done much lately against the Heat, however. Smith has shot 36.0 percent and averaged 15.3 points in his last six in the series.

Atlanta has reached 100 points in a season-best five straight games, but hasn't scored more than 92 in its last four in this series.
