INDIANA: GUARDS: GEORGE HILL is less of a creator and more of a game-manager/scorer, which fits fine in this starting five . . . LANCE STEPHENSON continues to be an enigma. His speed pushing the ball in transition is an asset, but his terrible shooting and bizarre decision-making often makes him a liability in the half court . . . C.J. WATSON has proven to be a capable second-unit point guard, but he's on his third team in three years because he's managed to give away two playoff games with monumentally bad moments . . . ORLANDO JOHNSON is unlikely to see meaningful minutes, but his role should grow slightly now that Gerald Green is gone. FORWARDS: This is PAUL GEORGE'S team. Once a do-it-all role player, he's now polished enough to create his own offense . . . As expected, DAVID WEST bounced back in his second season off a torn ACL. He's still deadly as a mid-range shooter, a savvy passer and a strong rebounder . . . LUIS SCOLA slides into Tyler Hansbrough's old role as a second-unit banger, and insurance for West and Roy Hibbert . . . DANNY GRANGER is in no-man's land. He's not better than Paul George, and probably no longer an upgrade over Lance Stephenson. His best asset may be his expiring deal . . . CHRIS COPELAND can't defend, but gives the Pacers a three-point threat . . . SOLOMON HILL doesn't figure to contribute this season. CENTERS: ROY HIBBERT proved capable of handling more minutes last season, but Indy will likely still be cautious with their asthmatic 7-foot-2 center during the regular season . . . IAN MAHINMI is back to give his six fouls and move some bodies out of the paint.
MIAMI: GUARDS: DWYANE WADE will continue to take a smaller role during the regular season, as the Heat try desperately to keep him fresh for the playoffs. He's attacking the rim far less than he used to . . . MARIO CHALMERS will continue to start, playing off the ball more than any other point guard . . . RAY ALLEN will once again serve as sixth man, providing long-range shooting off the bench. He didn't start a single game last year, and at age 38, he'll rarely play full-time minutes as Miami looks toward the postseason . . . NORRIS COLE continues to inch up on Chalmers' starting role, improving nicely between his first and second seasons. But as long as Chalmers is the superior shooter, Cole will play behind him. FORWARDS: LEBRON JAMES is the best player in the league by a wide margin. There's no reason he shouldn't win his third straight MVP award . . . SHANE BATTIER is back as a glue guy, flopper and corner-three shooter. He'll play part-time minutes, often coming off the bench . . . UDONIS HASLEM will likely start, but he rarely stays on the floor for even half of a game. The Heat will continue to rotate big men alongside Chris Bosh . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY provides this team with an athlete who can put the ball in the basket coming off the bench. He must prove he can stay focused and out of trouble . . . RASHARD LEWIS may step into a slightly bigger role now that Mike Miller is gone. His troublesome knees won't allow him to play a lot of minutes, but he still shoots it well enough to help for a few minutes a night . . . JAMES JONES might have to do more than enjoy a courtside seat now that Miller is gone. CENTERS: CHRIS BOSH plays center in the Heat's small-ball lineup. He'll do his thing in the high post, and he's one of Miami's rotating rim protectors . . . CHRIS ANDERSEN did enough last postseason to earn a part-time role this year . . . The Heat hope GREG ODEN and Birdman will stagger their injuries. Oden should be part of a rotation alongside Bosh . . . JOEL ANTHONY is a half-step above team mascot.

*Pacers-Heat Preview* =====================


Indiana (20-4) at Miami (18-6), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Just over a week after their first meeting of the season, the top teams in the Eastern Conference battle again.

There's a chance the game's best player will be sitting it out.

LeBron James is questionable for Wednesday night's matchup between the Miami Heat and the visiting Indiana Pacers with a sprained left ankle. The four-time MVP has not missed a game this season.

"I've had my fair share of ankle twists so I already knew how it was going to be today," James said Tuesday. "Very stiff, very sore, it'll be around the clock treatment with Mike (Mancias, his trainer) and we'll go from there."

James suffered the injury Monday during the third quarter of a 117-94 win over Utah. Though he was removed from the game after rolling his ankle, James did return in the fourth quarter and finished with 30 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.

"I'm day to day, and we'll see what happens," said James, who admitted he has previously healed quickly from sprained ankles. "I didn't step on nobody's foot, my ankle just turned. So it's frustrating."

The Heat will likely need James - and in top form - if they are going to extract revenge on Indiana. Last Tuesday, the Pacers protected their home floor and knocked off the Heat 90-84 as they held James to 17 points and a season-worst 6 of 16 from the field.

The teams have met in the playoffs each of the past two seasons, with their latest series in the Eastern Conference finals reaching seven games. Miami won the deciding contest at home, but a potential Game 7 would come in Indiana this season if the current standings don't change.

The Pacers (20-4) have run out to the best record in the conference, with the Heat (18-6) directly on their heels. No other team in the East is more than a game above .500.

Indiana may have been peeking ahead to the rematch in Miami in its latest game, falling 101-96 to Detroit on Monday for its first home loss of the season.

"A loss like this brings us back to reality," said Paul George, who was 4 of 14 from the field and has shot 27.0 percent in the last three games. "We can't turn it on, we can't have a switch when we want to. Teams are getting up and getting ready to play us, so we have to match that energy and prepare like they're the team to beat."

Indiana (20-4) will be facing what could be a pumped-up, angry Heat team. Not only did the Pacers beat them last week, but guard Lance Stephenson put an exclamation point on the victory with a breakaway dunk in the final seconds - something James did not appreciate.

"(The Heat) were really mad at the end of the game because I got a cheap dunk," Stephenson told the team's website. "I know they're going to bring it to us."

The Heat (18-6) were a season-worst 4 of 21 from 3-point range in the last matchup but are among the best in the NBA at 38.6 percent. Mario Chalmers is 6 for 8 from behind the 3-point line in two wins since the loss at Indiana.

Miami also must do a better job in the second half, having been outscored 50-37 by the Pacers in the second half.

"The guys have owned that, addressed it," coach Erik Spoelstra said of the Heat's poor play after halftime.

Though the matchups with the Pacers are getting plenty of national attention, Miami knows there is still a lot of basketball left to play.

"It's a basketball game versus two good teams," said Dwyane Wade, who had 27 points Monday but was held to 17 in Indiana. "A lot of that goes on in the NBA. It's not our championship."
