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.
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.

*Cavaliers-Heat Preview* ========================


Cleveland (17-37) at Miami (38-14), 6:00 p.m. EDT

For all the heartbreak and feelings of betrayal Cleveland fans have experienced since LeBron James left, the MVP's defection to South Beach and the Cavaliers' subsequent losing season contributed to Kyrie Irving becoming the new face of the franchise.

Though James' high praise for the second-year point guard has rumors swirling the two could eventually join forces in Cleveland, both players simply are focused on the stellar competition each currently provides for the other.

James looks to improve to 8-1 against his former team while guiding the Miami Heat to an 11th consecutive victory as they host Irving and the Cavaliers on Sunday night.

The Cavaliers finished an Eastern Conference-worst 19-63 the season after James' departure while the Heat made it to the NBA finals, but winning the draft lottery allowed Cleveland to select Irving with the No. 1 overall pick.

While James has won another MVP and his only championship since joining Miami, Irving's potential has Cleveland fans believing in a bright future - one that has the possibility of including both.

Irving, despite missing 11 games with a broken finger, has averaged 23.5 points, made his first All-Star appearance and won the 3-point contest at All-Star weekend after winning rookie of the year in 2011-12.

James, who can opt out of his current contract in 2014, has taken notice of Irving's talent, leading to rumors he would consider a return to his former team.

"I said it earlier this year or last year that in a couple years, he'd be (one of the) top two or top three best point guards in the league. He's headed there already," James said over All-Star weekend. "His ability to shoot the ball, his ability to drive the ball and finish - I think he's one of the best finishers we have in our game.

"He's doing some great things right now and they should be excited about having him in Cleveland."

Whether James joins Irving is a possibility neither is focusing on at this point. For now, Irving simply realizes facing James always will provide a challenge.

"He's taken everything everybody said about him that he didn't do well (when he first left Cleveland) and is proving it all the time now," Irving said. "That's as simply put as you can say it. He's doing everything people said he couldn't do. It's fun to watch."

Irving averaged 16.7 points in three meetings with James and the Heat last season, but his broken finger forced him to miss Miami's 110-108 win Nov. 24.

James, averaging 26.3 points against his former team, hit 10 of 16 shots and scored 30 points in that contest, also assisting on Ray Allen's go-ahead 3-pointer with 18 seconds remaining as the Heat rallied from a seven-point deficit with less than two minutes to play.

James recorded his 43rd career triple-double, including the postseason, as Miami (39-14) extended its winning streak with a 114-90 victory at Philadelphia on Saturday.

"I was going to stay out there until I got it," said James, who finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. "I wasn't going to let this one slip away. I've had too many games where I was one assist, one rebound away. I wasn't coming out."

James' lone triple-double against Cleveland, coincidentally, came on the road in his only loss to the Cavaliers.

Irving finished with 12 points and nine assists in Saturday's 118-94 win over Orlando as Cleveland (18-37) made its first stop on a three-game trip that concludes Tuesday in Chicago.

"We're just trying to win as many games as possible," Irving said. "In order to do that, we just have to find consistency on this team and it starts with this road trip. It is a challenge for us as a team and we are looking forward to it."

The Heat, kicking off a three-game stretch at AmericanAirlines Arena, are an East-best 23-3 at home.
