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.
TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY is healthy again and will be handed the reigns. He could be the Raptors best player on both ends of the floor . . . As of now, JOSE CALDERON is still on the roster, but he's not long for Toronto with Lowry's arrival. He won't start over Lowry, but he could see decent minutes as the Raptors attempt to showcase him . . . With Toronto's influx of new talent, DeMAR DeROZAN could be marginalized on the offensive end. He hasn't really progressed past the dunker/raw athlete stage of his career . . . Rookie TERRENCE ROSS can just about match DeRozan's athleticism, and while he has no handle, he's a potentially deadly three-point threat . . . JOHN LUCAS III will back up both guard spots . . . ALAN ANDERSON returns as a defensive stopper in the second unit. FORWARDS: ANDREA BARGNANI makes his triumphant return and will likely go back to the perimeter. The Raptors have beefed up in the middle so Bargnani can play outside more . . . LANDRY FIELDS plays enough defense to earn minutes, but it seems like his signing was more a result of Toronto playing cap games to try to land Steve Nash. He'll likely platoon with Terrence Ross . . . ED DAVIS made some strides this offseason, but he's still not where the Raptors want him to be on the offensive end . . . LINAS KLEIZA's knee should be in better shape this season. The Raptors want more shooting, and he has a chance to grab a bigger role . . . Toronto will do everything it can to get out from under AMIR JOHNSON's contract . . . DOMINIC McGUIRE figures to occupy the final seat on the Raptors bench. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS would have been the No. 2 pick of the draft had he come out a year later. He's a wiry, strong athlete who's physical down low with soft touch out to 10 feet. Toronto sees him as a franchise cornerstone who meshes nicely with Bargnani . . . AARON GRAY should provide ample competition for the starting center job.

*Heat-Raptors Preview* ======================

By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer

Miami (50-14) at Toronto (26-40), 1:00 p.m. EDT

Six weeks ago, the Miami Heat used a second-half surge to bounce back from a loss and beat the Toronto Raptors for the 10th straight time.

They haven't stopped winning since.

Looking to match the second-longest winning streak in NBA history with their 22nd straight victory, the Heat return to where their historic run began Sunday at the Air Canada Centre.

Two days after Miami (50-14) lost 102-89 at Indiana on Feb. 1, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade combined for 81 points to help overcome a six-point halftime deficit and win 100-85 at Toronto on Super Bowl Sunday. It was a more convincing showing than the Heat's 123-116 overtime home win over the Raptors (26-40) on Jan. 23, and it proved to be the start of a remarkable run.

Following the victory, the Heat watched the Super Bowl and bonded.

"I think the biggest thing for our team was watching the Super Bowl and getting away from basketball in a sense and just enjoying each other," Wade said. "We got the famous speech from (teammate) Shane Battier and we've been rolling ever since."

Though details are sketchy, Battier's speech was apparently inspirational.

"You had to be there," Bosh said. "It was after watching the Super Bowl. It was a good game, we had a great time. I guess the main focus was that you're going to miss me when I'm gone."

Bosh continued.

"It was not so much about him. He tied in everything. He tied in life to the Super Bowl. It was just everything. It was a good time."

The good times keep coming for the Heat, who surpassed the 1970-71 Bucks' run of 20 straight wins, fittingly, with a 107-94 win at Milwaukee on Friday.

Averaging 105.3 points on 50.8 percent shooting while allowing 93.9 over the past 21 contests, Miami is one victory away from equaling Houston's 22-game run from 2007-08. The 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers hold the record with 33 consecutive victories.

"You have to enjoy it," said Bosh, who had 28 points on 12-of-16 shooting Friday. "We don't want to be in a position where we're not and then we look back and say, `I wish we would have done this. I wish we would have done that.' We're having a blast together, which is most important.

"To put some wins together, to have a chance at winning an NBA title and defending an NBA title is very special."

The Heat got a scare Friday when Wade briefly left with a neck strain after crashing to the floor early in the contest. He returned and finished with 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds to help Miami to a ninth straight road victory.

Wade has averaged 25.3 points on 58.2 percent shooting over the last 12 games, and 31.9 in his last nine at Toronto. James, meanwhile, has scored 29.4 per contest and shot 56.6 percent in his last seven in the series.

Since leaving the Raptors for Miami in 2010, Bosh has averaged 27.7 points on 30-of-53 shooting (56.6 percent) in three visits to Toronto. The Raptors have dropped four straight at home to the Heat by an average of 13.3 points.

Rudy Gay scored 28 while Amir Johnson added 12 and a career-high 21 rebounds as Toronto beat NBA-worst Charlotte 92-78 on Friday for its third win in five games since a five-game slide.

The Raptors prevailed despite 20 turnovers, but they know things will be much tougher against the league's leading team Sunday.

"If we have 20 turnovers on Sunday, then it will be 40 points (for Miami)," coach Dwane Casey said.

Gay scored 29 against the Heat last month in his second game with Toronto after arriving from Memphis.
