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.
ORLANDO: GUARDS: JAMEER NELSON will be trade bait all year, as the Magic have no interest in picking up his option after the season . . . ARRON AFFLALO is also on the trade block, and has more on-the-court value than Nelson . . . The Magic will find starter's minutes for rookie VICTOR OLADIPO somehow, at the expense of Afflalo, Nelson (if Oladipo proves capable of handling the point later this year) or both. He's the future in this backcourt . . . E'TWAUN MOORE is back mostly because he's a cheap option at back-up point guard. He's still a fringe NBA player . . . RONNIE PRICE is lucky to have a roster spot anywhere after a brutal year in Portland . . . Second-year man DORON LAMB will have a chance to prove himself as a second-unit scorer. FORWARDS: MAURICE HARKLESS has nice upside, and Orlando will find him more opportunities on offense. He reportedly added weight in an effort to be able to attack the rim more effectively . . . TOBIAS HARRIS is a disaster defensively, but after arriving in Orlando he showed the kind of versatile offensive skill set this team lacks. Expect him to win the starting job at the four . . . GLEN DAVIS will battle Harris for minutes, but as A 27-year-old, injury-prone player, he's more likely to be phased out by the rebuilding Magic . . . JASON MAXIELL will provide some physicality at the four and five . . . ANDREW NICHOLSON is still a work-in-progress, but is showing flashes of becoming an effective stretch four. CENTERS: NIKOLA VUCEVIC is a cornerstone in the Magic's rebuilding project. He's not terribly skilled or athletic, but he's a high-energy rebounder who has the touch to get plenty of baskets cleaning up garbage . . . KYLE O'QUINN had some nice moments in meaningless games late last year. The second-year pro might be able to hang on for a few more seasons as a back-up center.

*Heat-Magic Preview* ====================


Miami (24-8) at Orlando (10-22), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Rarely do the Miami Heat have trouble keeping up with an opponent, but that was the case their last time out.

Given the way things have been going lately for Orlando's offense, the Heat should be able to bounce back when they visit the Magic on Saturday night.

Miami (24-8) is typically the team pushing the tempo and forcing the opposition to try and play catch-up, but Thursday against Golden State the Heat were overwhelmed in a 123-114 loss. The Warriors made 15 of 29 shots from beyond the arc with Stephen Curry hitting eight to finish with 36 points. Golden State shot 56.1 percent overall as Miami allowed its most points at home in a non-overtime game since LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh became teammates in 2010-11.

"You have to have the mental toughness to stay the course," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "But also (have) the mental toughness to go down to the other end and forget about what just happened and focus on what we need to do offensively. We could have done a better job of that."

Despite Spoelstra's criticism, the Heat still played well offensively, shooting 51.3 percent to lose for only the second time in 20 games when hitting at least 50 percent of their shots. They also reached triple digits in scoring for the sixth time in seven contests, averaging 109.4 points over that stretch.

Coming close to those numbers against Orlando would likely mean a victory.

The Magic (10-22) have scored 81 in each of their last two games on 38.2 percent shooting. They did score 109 in each of their previous two games but those wins came over defensively challenged Detroit and an Atlanta team playing the second game of a back-to-back without Al Horford.

In Thursday's 87-81 overtime loss at Cleveland, Orlando was on the verge of victory, leading by 10 with 1:21 remaining before completely collapsing. The Magic totaled two more points on 1-of-8 shooting over the rest of regulation and overtime.

"We blew it, bottom line," Orlando forward Tobias Harris said. "It was a tough, tough loss. The whole game, we thought it was ours. These are the ones we need to win. Very tough loss."

The Magic also seemed to be on the way to victory in their last game against Miami on Nov. 23, up by as much as 16 in the second half, but ended up suffering a 101-99 road loss - their seventh straight defeat in the series. Three days earlier in Orlando, the Heat cruised to a 120-92 victory.

Wade had a game-high 27 points on 9-of-16 shooting in the last matchup after missing the season's first meeting to rest his knees. In 33 career games versus Orlando, Wade is averaging 28.1 points, his highest mark against any team.

He had 22 points on 9-of-18 shooting against the Warriors, while James scored 26 and shot 10 of 16. James has shot 50 percent or better in each of his last nine games, averaging 26.6 points on 60.7 percent from the field.

Much has been made of the Heat's struggles on the glass - their average of 36.1 rebounds per game is worst in the NBA - but they could catch a break against the Magic.

Orlando center Nikola Vucevic, who is averaging 13.4 points and a team-high 11.1 rebounds, sat out Thursday with a sprained left ankle. He is considered day to day, but the Magic will use caution after he missed four games with the same injury in early December.
