KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.

*Heat-Timberwolves Preview* ===========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Miami (42-14) at Minnesota (20-36), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Miami Heat are on the cusp of the longest winning streak in franchise history, and judging by their upcoming schedule, it's not about to end just yet.

LeBron James' track record at the Target Center may be another reason the run continues.

James looks to extend his road dominance against the last-place Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night as the Heat go for a team-record 15th straight win.

Miami (43-14) continues to pull away atop the Eastern Conference, holding sizable advantages on fellow division leaders Indiana and New York.

The Heat may be sending a message to the entire league during their surge, averaging 107.7 points and shooting 51.6 percent while reeling off 14 wins in a row to match the club mark set from Dec. 6, 2004-Jan. 1, 2005.

The run includes wins over the Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Clippers and reigning West champion Oklahoma City. Miami overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Knicks 99-93 on Sunday after losing the previous two meetings, each by 20 points.

The next few games don't seem to be as challenging. After visiting Minnesota (20-36), Miami hosts Orlando and Philadelphia before facing the Pacers next Sunday.

The Heat have averaged 108.6 points while winning five straight over the Timberwolves, including three visits to Minneapolis. They beat Minnesota 103-92 at home on Dec. 18.

James seems to enjoy playing at the Target Center, averaging 32.6 points on 54.8 percent shooting while winning his last seven games there - two with Miami. Overall, he has led his teams to 13 wins in a row over Minnesota.

Among the league leaders with 27.1 points per game, James scored 29 with 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals while shaking off a knee injury to rally Miami against the Knicks for a sixth straight road win.

"His motor is limitless. I don't want to take that for granted. I don't just want to assume that he can play 40-plus minutes, but he had to do it on both ends," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Couldn't get him out in the fourth quarter and if I would have tried, he probably would have strangled me.

"He was strong and was at his strongest after 40 minutes of basketball."

James was 12 of 23 from the field, making at least half his shots for the 21st time in his last 23 games.

Dwyane Wade is making his own impact on the Heat's winning streak, averaging 27.6 points on 61.0 percent shooting over the past five games. The All-Star guard has managed 29.4 points per game over seven career contests at Minnesota.

The Timberwolves have dropped 21 of 25 and five straight following Saturday's 109-94 defeat at Portland, and injuries continue to pile up.

Nikola Pekovic, averaging 15.9 points and 8.8 rebounds, missed the most recent game with an abdominal strain, while Kevin Love and Andrei Kirilenko are among several others still sitting out.

"It's hard when you're missing players, especially scorers like Kevin, Pek and Kirilenko," said Ricky Rubio, who is averaging 11.5 points and 10.8 assists over the past four games but shooting 30.2 percent in that stretch. "It's something we have to face every night - play the players we have and fight until the end."

Rubio missed the December meeting with the Heat. He had 12 points and 12 assists in his only previous game against Miami, which the Heat won 103-101 in Minnesota last season on a late alley-oop layup from James to Wade.
