KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
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.

*Heat-Cavaliers Preview* ========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Miami (45-19) at Cleveland (26-41), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Cleveland Cavaliers won't have All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving available when their tough week continues with a visit from their former star player.

LeBron James will try to help the Heat further distance themselves from a recent rough stretch by taking advantage of the short-handed Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

If trying to make up a significant deficit in the Eastern Conference playoff race wasn't enough, Cleveland (26-41) will have to attempt to accomplish that goal with its leader in scoring and assists out for at least two weeks.

Irving, averaging 21.2 points and 6.2 assists, strained a tendon in his left arm in Sunday's 102-80 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavaliers had won the first two games on the trip.

"We had a lull period for almost a quarter and a half, and we just didn't go out and compete," guard Jarrett Jack said. "Then the game kind of started to turn in our favor, but fighting an uphill battle against a team like that is a very tough task."

Cleveland's difficult week features a three-game homestand against teams that are in the top four of their respective conferences: Miami (45-19), Oklahoma City and Houston. Even with Irving available, that stretch might have seriously hindered the Cavaliers' chances of cutting into a five-game deficit on Atlanta in the race for the East's final playoff berth.

The 10th-place Cavaliers will try to snap a nine-game skid to Miami. James has been on the court for all but one of those wins and is 4-1 in return trips to Cleveland since leaving for Miami before the 2010-11 season.

He's been a part of three of the Heat's four consecutive wins at Quicken Loans Arena, and had 28 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a 95-84 victory there Nov. 27. James totaled 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in a 114-107 home victory over the Cavaliers on Dec. 14.

The Heat will try to add to that win streak in the series while earning their second straight victory following a 1-5 stretch, which contributed to their 3 1/2-game deficit to Indiana for the East lead. Before leaving for a two-game trip, Miami used a late surge to pull away for a 113-104 victory against Houston on Sunday.

The Heat scored 21 of the final 28 points in the game after blowing an 11-point lead in the second quarter. Ray Allen provided a season-high 25 points off the bench while James and Dwyane Wade contributed 24 apiece.

"We came in with a mindset that we wanted to get this win. It was good to see us have to gut one out," James said.

James has averaged 29.2 points, 8.6 assists and 8.0 rebounds in his five career games in Cleveland.

Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters is averaging 19.6 points and shooting 50.0 percent in five all-time games against Miami. He had 24 points in the November matchup.
