CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.
PHILADELPHIA: GUARDS: Welcome to Tankadelphia. MICHAEL CARTER-WILLIAMS will be handed the reigns at the point, and has the size and savvy to create some offense. But a work-in-progress jumper and too many risky passes will lead to plenty of lost possessions . . . The Sixers would love to unload perennially disappointing ex-No. 2 pick EVAN TURNER. He's yet to develop a jump shot, and while he'll start for a laughably thin Philly team, he looks more and more like a second-unit player . . . JAMES ANDERSON could end up playing a lot of minutes off the bench, simply because the Sixers don't have enough NBA-caliber players . . . JASON RICHARDSON will miss at least half the season after major knee surgery. He may never contribute in the NBA again'TONY WROTEN could see the floor plenty as a high-upside player who must cut down on his turnovers and improve his jump shot. FORWARDS: THADDEUS YOUNG will likely step up as the No. 1 option, and he very well may be the only player on this team that would make a rotation of a playoff contender. We'll see what he can do with defenses focused on stopping him . . . LAVOY ALLEN will be leaned on for heavy minutes as one of their few proven players . . . ARNETT MOULTRIE might end up with a very big role this year, as the Sixers are especially lacking post players. He at least rebounds and gets in people's way defensively . . . Philly will try its hand with ROYCE WHITE, who has plenty of talent but just as much baggage. He and the Rockets couldn't see eye-to-eye with how to manage his anxiety issues . . . TIM OHLBRECHT might actually see the court on this team. CENTERS: SPENCER HAWES should start at center, especially early. His mid-range shooting makes him one of the few offensive options on this team . . . Coming off a torn ACL, NERLENS NOEL probably won't be ready until December. He should contribute as a rim protector and rebounder, but will be pushed around and doesn't have much on offense . . . KWAME BROWN is waiting for his contract to be bought out.

*Cavaliers-76ers Preview* =========================


Cleveland (20-33) at Philadelphia (15-39), 7:00 p.m. EDT

While the All-Star break didn't appear to come at the best time for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving certainly used the weekend to showcase his skills.

A meeting with the free-falling Philadelphia 76ers could help the Cavaliers extend their best run of the post-LeBron James era.

Irving looks to build on his All-Star MVP performance and lead the visiting Cavaliers to a fifth straight victory Tuesday night against the 76ers, losers of eight in a row.

Following a 93-89 victory in Detroit on Wednesday, Cleveland (20-33) opens the second half riding its longest winning streak since an eight-game run in March 2010 - just before James departed via free agency.

Tristan Thompson had a season-best 25 points and 15 rebounds, while Irving scored 23 and hit a key 3-pointer with 27.2 seconds remaining.

"It's been fun," said Irving, who was drafted by Cleveland with the No. 1 pick in 2011. "Four in a row - this is the first time in my career. It's a big step."

Irving has played well on the road lately, averaging 23.1 points during a stretch of seven straight games with at least 20.

That doesn't include his 31-point, 14-assist performance in New Orleans, where he earned All-Star MVP honors in the Eastern Conference's 163-155 victory Sunday.

"It was definitely special, just being out there with all these great athletes," Irving said.

Irving also had a big game against the 76ers (15-39) on Nov. 9, finishing with 39 points - including the go-ahead layup with 0.6 seconds left - to go with 12 assists in a 127-125 double-overtime home win.

The star guard, however, is still searching for his first win in Philadelphia, scoring just 8.8 per game on 13-of-50 (26.0 percent) shooting in four career meetings there.

The Cavaliers have dropped their last five visits by an average of 14.8 points but may be able to end that drought against a Philadelphia team trying to end a seven-game home losing streak - its worst since a 12-game slide in 1996-97.

Evan Turner finished with 21 points, while Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams had 19 apiece in a 105-100 loss at Utah on Wednesday. It was the 76ers' eighth straight defeat overall, their longest skid since losing 12 in a row more than five years ago.

Carter-Williams, a rookie of the year candidate with 17.1 points per game, has totaled 54 points and 18 assists while shooting 52.4 percent in his last two against the Cavaliers.

"I thought Michael played with great poise (against the Jazz)," coach Brett Brown said. "He could have handled this particular matchup in different ways. I thought he grew."

Young had a forgettable performance the last time he faced Cleveland, going scoreless on 0-for-7 shooting in a 111-93 road loss Jan. 7. C.J Miles starred for the Cavaliers with a career-best 10 3-pointers and a season-high 34 points.

After shooting 33.3 percent in a 94-79 loss in Philadelphia on Nov. 8, Cleveland totaled 238 points while hitting 44.1 percent from 3-point range in consecutive home wins in the series.

That's a trend the Cavaliers could continue since the 76ers have given up an average of 115.4 points during their eight-game skid.

Cleveland's Anderson Varejao, averaging a team-best 10.3 rebounds, is expected to miss a third straight game due to multiple injuries.
