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.
NEW YORK: GUARDS: RAYMOND FELTON will start at the point, which seems like a colossal mistake. He had his career year in New York under Mike D'Antoni, but the Knicks have gone away from the pick-and-roll system he thrived in . . . Don't be surprised if JASON KIDD is overtaking Felton in minutes played by midseason. He's limited athletically but still a heady passer . . . Resident chucker J.R. SMITH should see big minutes early before IMAN SHUMPERT steps in as the defense half of their shooting guard platoon as soon as his knee is recovered mid-season . . . RONNIE BREWER will be Smith's defensive complement while Shumpert is out . . . PABLO PRIGIONI is a game manager who provides insurance at the point. FORWARDS: This is once again CARMELO ANTHONY's team, as the Knicks will run their offense through him. It's going to be a lot of iso, and a lot of scoring opportunities for Melo . . . AMAR'E STOUDEMIRE doesn't fit nearly as well in this system as he did in former coach Mike D'Antoni's. He ended up forcing a lot of shots a year ago, and his durability is a major question mark . . . STEVE NOVAK will continue to come off the bench strictly as a three-point shooter. He's one of the best long-range bombers in the NBA, but he's too much of a defensive liability to play more than 20 minutes per night . . . Swingman JAMES WHITE will also get some minutes at the two or three spots with his 6-foot-7 frame. . . CHRIS COPELAND had some solid years overseas, but will be lucky to break into this rotation . . . KURT THOMAS is in player/coach mode. CENTERS: TYSON CHANDLER is indispensible on the defensive end as long as sieves Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire are also in the frontcourt . . . MARCUS CAMBY can't defendin space like Chandler can, but his ability to rebound and protect the rim will come in handy as the second unit is no better defensively than the starters . . . RASHEED WALLACE came out of retirement, but has a long way to go, especially with his lack of conditioning, before he contributes much at age 38.

*Heat-Knicks Preview* =====================


Miami (42-14) at New York (35-20), 1:00 p.m. EDT

The Miami Heat proved their last time out they don't necessarily need LeBron James hitting shots at his usual exceptional rate in order to pull out a win.

He could've used more help in the Heat's first two meetings with the New York Knicks, though.

Visiting Miami looks to match a franchise record with its 14th consecutive victory Sunday by avoiding another defeat to New York, which is seeking a fourth straight win.

Though James wound up scoring 14 fourth-quarter points and hitting a clutch 3-pointer with 24 seconds remaining, he connected on only 4 of 14 from the field and finished with 18 points as the Heat (42-14) beat Memphis 98-91 on Friday.

It marked a rare off night for the reigning MVP, who has hit less than 40 percent of his shots only twice this season. Dwyane Wade, who assisted on James' late 3, finished with 22 points and Shane Battier added 14 off the bench.

"He's the best player in the world," said Chris Bosh, who scored 13 points. "But we have the best supporting cast."

James did finish with 10 assists, though, after having 16 to go along with 40 points in Tuesday's double-overtime win over Sacramento. Those marked his first back-to-back regular-season games with double-digit assists since Nov. 2 and 5, 2010.

"When I don't make shots, I know I can do other things to help our team win," James said. "It's no surprise we've got guys stepping up. We've got guys who can do the small things, the big things and everything in between."

The latest victory brought Miami to the verge of matching the franchise's longest winning streak, set in 2004-05, though James said the team isn't focusing on the run.

"Just win the next one. That's all it's about," James said. "We've got the next one in New York and then we'll go on from there."

James is averaging 33.6 points in his last eight regular-season trips to Madison Square Garden, but he was held to 23 on Nov. 2 as the Knicks held Miami to its second-lowest total of the season in a 104-84 win.

Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points in that contest as the Knicks tied a season high with 19 3-pointers, but even his absence due to a finger injury in the next matchup didn't prevent New York from earning another blowout victory over the Heat.

Raymond Felton scored 27 points - hitting six of the Knicks' 18 3s - to help overcome 31 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists from James in a 112-92 win at Miami as the rest of the Heat shot only 39.3 percent.

New York (35-20) heads into this contest having won three straight following a season-worst four-game skid after Anthony scored a game-high 30 points in Friday's 96-88 victory at Washington.

"We will be prepared for Miami," said Anthony, who has scored at least 30 points in three of his last four.

Felton added 23 points and J.R. Smith scored 13 off the bench for the Knicks, who outscored the Wizards 23-11 in the fourth quarter. They know they need to be better going forward, especially against surging Miami.

"We locked down in spurts, but still not where we really want to be," Smith said. "We had the game won a few times, but let them back in it.."

The Knicks have won seven of nine at home, while the Heat have won their last five on the road by an average of 16.2 points.
