KEY GAME INFORMATION
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
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.

*Bobcats-Heat Preview* ======================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Charlotte (27-32) at Miami (42-14), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Miami Heat may be rolling, but they're still far from their ultimate goal of winning a third straight title.

While the Charlotte Bobcats are making a run at just their second postseason berth in franchise history, a challenging stretch seems to be showing just how much work they have to do before becoming a contender.

Miami will try to humble Charlotte again as it seeks its 16th straight victory in the series against the visiting Bobcats on Monday night.

The Heat (42-14) have won seven in a row and 10 of 11 while matching last season's best 56-game start in franchise history. Miami has shot 53.8 percent from the field or better in five of six in addition to limiting opponents to 43.4 percent shooting or worse in each of the last five games.

"Defensively we're flying around and we're communicating," LeBron James said. "And offensively, obviously we're playing at a high level."

James tallied 20 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in Saturday's 112-98 win over Orlando while wearing an NBA-requested clear protective mask as opposed to the black one he donned for Thursday's blowout of the New York Knicks, his first game since suffering a broken nose on Feb. 20 against Oklahoma City. Though Saturday's contest ended a five-game streak of scoring at least 31 points, he was 8 of 12 and is shooting 62.9 percent during Miami's winning streak.

Coach Erik Spoelstra's staggered days of rest for Dwyane Wade appears to be paying off with the 11th-year guard scoring 22-plus in six of his last nine while shooting 62.0 percent. Wade is shooting a career-best 55.5 percent overall.

But for all of the Heat's success - they're 2 1/2 games behind Indiana for the Eastern Conference lead - president Pat Riley offered a more grounded evaluation.

"We're playing very well right now, but every day you keep ratcheting up what you need to do to get ready for what you know is going to be an incredibly competitive playoff," Riley said. "Right now, you have to keep in mind we have a long way to go."

Charlotte has struggled to provide Miami with much competition, failing to beat the Heat since March 9, 2010. With three wins already over the Bobcats this season - including a 104-96 overtime road victory on Jan. 18 - the Heat can clinch their fourth straight season sweep Monday.

The Bobcats (27-32) won a season-best four in a row from Feb. 18-22, but have taken a step back following losses at league elites San Antonio and Oklahoma City. The schedule won't get any easier after facing Miami with the league-leading Pacers visiting on Wednesday.

Charlotte, which currently is seventh in the East as the franchise aims for its first playoff appearance since 2009-10, was dominated inside in a 116-99 loss to the Thunder on Sunday. The Bobcats, who were outscored 31-18 in the fourth quarter, were outrebounded 44-29 and outscored 50-32 in the paint.

"I think through three quarters we did a good job, but we came out in the fourth, and again, particularly when they brought their starters back, we just couldn't contain the ball and couldn't keep the ball out of the paint, which has been something we've been good at all year," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said.

Al Jefferson scored 25, marking his 11th performance with 25 or more in his last 15 contests.

James is averaging 30.6 points while shooting 69.0 percent (58 for 84) over his last five matchups with Charlotte.
