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.
MEMPHIS: GUARDS: MIKE CONLEY has steadily improved every season. He's now a borderline All-Star point guard . . . TONY ALLEN is back as the defensive half of Memphis' SG platoon. He's a favorite of new head coach David Joerger, the mastermind of the Grizzlies' suffocating defense as an assistant . . . JERRYD BAYLESS is on the cusp of being one of the NBA's top sixth men. He's the only pure scorer they have on the perimeter . . . MIKE MILLER's minutes will be limited in the regular season, but he's still an effective bench option with his long-range shooting . . . Ultra-athletic rookie JAMAAL FRANKLIN seems like a future rotation guy if/when he grasps Joerger's defensive schemes. FORWARDS: ZACH RANDOLPH has taken a back seat to Marc Gasol, but Z-Bo is still a dangerous low-post scorer. He might give way to Ed Davis a little more often when Memphis needs defense . . . TAYSHAUN PRINCE brought another quality defender to Memphis at last season's trade deadline. He's no better than a fifth option on offense, though . . . QUINCY PONDEXTER is one of the only shooters Memphis has, and he seems ready for a bigger role after a strong postseason performance. If nothing else, he's the heir apparent to Prince . . . ED DAVIS seems ready for a bigger role, but it's not coming behind Randolph and Gasol. He's a back-up for at least one more season . . . JON LEUER gives the Grizzlies another savvy reserve big. CENTERS: He's a bit overrated defensively (good, but not Defensive Player of the Year good), but MARC GASOL has emerged as the centerpiece of the Memphis offense. He's one of the league's best passing big men, to go along with some skill in the post . . . KOSTA KOUFOS gives them another 7-footer who can move the ball, though his role will be much smaller than it was in Denver.

*Heat-Grizzlies Preview* ========================


Miami (53-23) at Memphis (45-32), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies find themselves in the unenviable position of having to make up ground in the late stages of a playoff race, and that task is especially difficult with three of their remaining five opponents all playing for something in terms of the postseason.

They may be thankful that this final stretch begins at home.

The Grizzlies look to win a 12th straight at FedEx Forum on Wednesday night when they face the Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat.

Memphis' run at home has allowed it to stay within striking distance of the West's final postseason spot, but it has dropped four of six overall after Sunday's 112-92 loss to San Antonio.

The Grizzlies (45-32) are in ninth place in the conference, one game back of Phoenix. After this contest, they'll play also-rans Philadelphia and the Los Angeles Lakers before facing the Suns and seventh-place Dallas to end the regular season.

Memphis, which ranks third in the league in scoring defense allowing 94.4 points per game, has given up at least 100 in each of its last four defeats. It is 5-20 when opponents reach the century mark.

"We've had to work very hard to get back to where we are right now, to even be in this position," said Mike Conley, who scored 18 points against the Spurs. "It's the end of the year. Everybody's legs are tired. You're going to hit that wall here and there. We have to fight through it just like every other team."

The Grizzlies seemed to show signs of fatigue against San Antonio, as Zach Randolph finished with eight points and six rebounds while Marc Gasol scored six points. They'll look for a better performance against a Miami team that holds a one-half game edge on Indiana for home-court advantage throughout the East playoffs.

The Heat (53-24) had won five of six before Tuesday's matchup with Brooklyn, but LeBron James' dunk attempt in the final seconds was blocked by Mason Plumlee in an 88-87 loss.

James, who finished with 29 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, thought he was fouled on the final play.

"He grabbed my right hand," James said. "He didn't do it on purpose, but he got my right hand."

Miami will play three of its next four on the road. It had dropped six of its previous seven away from home before winning its last two.

"Every single one of these games, however you want to slice it, however you get to that point, there are plays to be made in the fourth quarter," coach Eric Spoelstra said. "And for whatever reason, they made more plays."

The Heat once again were short-handed - Dwyane Wade missed his seventh straight game with a nagging hamstring injury, Udonis Haslem sat out with a stomach virus and Greg Oden nursed a back injury.

Miami dropped to 17-9 without Wade, who is day to day. Spoelstra said Wade made a strong effort to play Tuesday, but he and the trainers decided he should sit out as a precaution.

Randolph had 25 points and 14 rebounds against Miami on March 21, but the Heat finished the game on a 14-2 run to beat the Grizzlies 91-86 at home.

Miami, though, has dropped four of the last five meetings in Memphis.
