BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS will surely take on more of a distributor role this year, but he's still this team's best option from three-point range, as well . . . JOE JOHNSON started to break down last season, so along with fewer shots (with the upgrade to the rest of the roster), he figures to play fewer regular-season minutes as well . . . JASON TERRY is clearly in the decline phase of his career, but is still the top scoring option among Brooklyn's second unit . . . ALAN ANDERSON gives them another shooter off the bench . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON steps into the back-up point guard spot vacated by C.J. Watson. The injury-prone vet will be one of the more rarely used back-up PGs . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR will be a non-factor. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE still has something left in the tank. While his athleticism is fading, he's still a cagey scorer who can also play some point forward to set up Williams . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO will be a Swiss army knife sixth man and should see plenty of starts as new head coach Jason Kidd rotates which veterans rest . . . REGGIE EVANS was retained for his rebounding ability and willingness to look ridiculous while flopping . . . ANDRAY BLATCHE will continue to settle in as a second-unit big. He's a name to remember for the future, as Kevin Garnett doesn't have much left in the tank . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC will be a seldom-used option as a stretch four . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA is still years away from contributing, and the influx of veterans will further delay his development. CENTERS: Last year did a lot to assuage durability concerns for BROOK LOPEZ. He's highly skilled, and he may be forced to grab more rebounds now that Reggie Evans is on the second unit . . . KEVIN GARNETT will start at power forward. He's still an effective pick-and-pop shooter and pick-and-roll defender, but he'll have to rest often during the regular season . . . MASON PLUMLEE is in no position to help this season.
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.

(EDITS fourth graf)

*Nets-Heat Preview* ===================

Brooklyn (32-30) at Miami (44-17), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Miami Heat ended a surprising losing streak in their last game. Now they'd like to stop one against the Brooklyn Nets.

Though they're one of only two opponents to beat the defending champions twice this season, the Nets haven't won in Miami in more than six years and no team has been better at home over the past three months than the Heat.

Brooklyn, however, heads to south Florida on Wednesday night with the Eastern Conference's best record in 2014 at 22-9 after winning six of seven.

"(The Nets) are playing some great basketball right now," said LeBron James, who came into this season having won 17 straight games against them going back to his Cleveland days. "We look forward to playing a team that's been playing good."

Miami had the better record in the new year and was riding an eight-game win streak until recently dropping three straight - all on the road - to match its longest skid of the season.

It ended Monday when the Heat (44-17) kicked off a four-game homestand with a 99-90 victory over Washington to clinch a playoff spot.

"We needed this win," said Dwyane Wade, who scored 13 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter. "We wasn't down on ourselves, but we really don't like losing two games in a row and we lost three. So this was a good way to pick it back up, and now we have a great week at home."

Miami is a league-best 16-2 at home since Dec. 10 - winning the last six - with the only losses coming to 40-win teams Golden State and Oklahoma City.

Brooklyn (32-30) has dropped eight straight there since Feb. 1, 2008, but enters this visit with a chance to win three in a row over the Heat for the first time since the 2005-06 season.

The only other team to beat them more than once is Chicago. However, the Bulls have had some success in recent years against Miami whereas the Nets had lost 13 straight meetings coming into this season, and eight of nine since James' arrival were decided by double digits.

One of Brooklyn's victories came during its 5-14 start, a 101-100 win Nov. 1. It was less surprising when the Heat lost 104-95 at Brooklyn in double-overtime Jan. 10, missing Wade as well as starters Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers.

The Heat's key players should all be available Monday. It's possible the only one missing for the Nets will be Brook Lopez (foot), but he's out for the season and hasn't been part of their resurgence. Kevin Garnett (back) has been out six straight games and Andrei Kirilenko (ankle) missed the last one, but both could return Wednesday.

It certainly appears Paul Pierce will play through his shoulder injury after doing so Monday, when he scored 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter of a 101-97 win over Toronto. That left the Nets within three games of the Raptors for the Atlantic Division lead.

"I knew the implications of this game. Maybe if it was a different type of game, (I sit out)," said Pierce, who hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:14 to play. "But this was one of our biggest games of the year. Division rival, a lot on the line tonight, so you can always pen me in with those type of games."

Pierce has keyed the two wins over Miami with an average of 21.0 points, and Joe Johnson has 25.5 per game in the season series. James had 26 points in the first meeting and 36 in the last one despite fouling out for the first time since 2008.
