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.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.

*Cavaliers-Thunder Preview* ===========================


Cleveland (22-35) at Oklahoma City (43-14), 8:00 p.m. EDT

It's been more than a year since the Oklahoma City Thunder experienced their most recent three-game skid. It's been much longer since they've lost that many in a row on their own court.

The Thunder will try to avoid their first three-game home losing streak in five seasons Wednesday night against the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers.

Oklahoma City (43-14) hasn't dropped three straight since Feb. 12-20, 2013, but is on the verge of that dubious distinction after a 125-117 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. The Thunder allowed the Clippers to make 13 3-pointers and shoot 51.9 percent overall.

They allowed Miami to shoot 54.7 percent in a 103-81 loss to open their six-game homestand Thursday.

"We've just got to get over this little slow stretch that we're in," said Kevin Durant, who had a team-best 42 points and 10 assists Sunday. "We'd better. We've got to play defense. That's the thing. We can't just let teams come in here and do whatever they want offensively."

Russell Westbrook is also still trying to get into game form after returning from knee surgery. He has missed 18 of 25 shots in two games since ending his lengthy absence, totaling a combined 29 points.

Westbrook will try for an improved effort while helping Oklahoma City avoid its first three-game home losing streak since a six-game skid March 18-April 7, 2009, its first season after relocating from Seattle.

During their attempt to avoid that skid, the Thunder will face a Cavaliers team missing three significant contributors and struggling since a six-game win streak, its longest in nearly four years.

Cleveland (22-36) suffered its third straight loss Tuesday, 99-93 against visiting Toronto. The Cavaliers have shot 39.3 percent during their skid and gone 13 of 55 (23.6 percent) from 3-point range while averaging 89.0 points - 14.8 fewer than in their six consecutive wins.

They haven't been helped by the absence of third-leading scorer Dion Waiters, who has missed four straight games with a hyperextended left knee. C.J. Miles has been out for the last three because of a sprained left ankle, and Anderson Varejao (back) has been sidelined the past seven.

Leading scorer Kyrie Irving was the only player with more than 15 points Tuesday, finishing with 25 on 10-of-22 shooting, but he also played 45-plus minutes. Irving had a combined 32 points on 9-of-33 shooting in the previous two games, and Cleveland is five games behind Atlanta for the East's final playoff spot.

"I'm willing to do anything for (coach Mike Brown) and my teammates. I'm just going to go out there and compete and live with the results," Irving said after playing a career high in a 48-minute game.

Irving scored a team-best 35 points in Cleveland's most recent matchup with Oklahoma City, a 115-110 home victory Feb. 2, 2013. The Cavaliers had dropped three of four meetings before that win and have lost two of their last three visits to Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Westbrook scored a combined 55 points and made 22 of 38 shots (57.9 percent) in last season's two games against Cleveland. Durant had 58 in those matchups but shot a more pedestrian 45.9 percent.
