INDIANA: Paul George's departure completely changed Indiana's game plan. Rather than making moves like a potential championship contender, new president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard decided to rebuild on the fly. Conventional wisdom suggests this team will struggle, and it could. But the Pacers seem to be playing like a better unit and may have just enough to sneak into the Eastern Conference playoffs. Although it's expected to be Myles Turner who replaces George as the face of the franchise, the key to Indiana's success this season will be Victor Oladipo, a defensive stopper who can provide the consistent energy the Pacers were lacking last season. Oladipo's ability to play fast and to share the leadership duties with Turner could finally push the 6-foot-4 guard to have that breakthrough season expected from the No. 2 draft pick four years ago.
MIAMI: Miami went 30-11 in the second half of last season, and kept the core of that team together after giving long-term deals to Dion Waiters and James Johnson, plus finding the space needed to pick up Wayne Ellington's option. Kelly Olynyk does some things in pick-and-roll situations that draw comparisons to what Chris Bosh used to do in Miami, and Justise Winslow's return to the rotation after an injury-plagued year may also help. The key to the team's success, however, is going to be the play of Goran Dragic, who found a new gear this past summer when he led his native Slovenia to its first European championship. He's a clear locker-room leader alongside 15-year veteran Udonis Haslem, and the Heat, who don't have a true backup point guard, need Dragic to be great if they're going to contend in the East.
Heat, Pacers both missing big men

MIAMI -- The Miami Heat will be without center Hassan Whiteside and the Indiana Pacers will play their second straight game without big man Myles Turner when the teams meet on Saturday night.

Whiteside has a bruised left knee while Turner is dealing with a concussion. The Heat (0-1) will be the more rested team and they will also have the benefit of home court when they host the Pacers (1-1).

It's Miami home opener and the first of six straight games at AmericanAirlines Arena -- Miami's longest homestand of the season.

The Heat have brought back 11 players from last season's team that finished with a 30-11 run but fell just short of the playoffs due to a nightmarish start.

"It feels like it's been a two-year offseason," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told The Miami Herald. "That's what happens when you miss the playoffs."

The Heat want to avoid another bad start, and they'd like to put Tuesday's loss to the Orlando Magic behind them as quickly as possible.

A win over the Pacers would accomplish that, but Indiana -- like most teams at this point in the season -- is optimistic about its own potential.

This is the first time since before the 2010 NBA Draft that four-time All-Star wing Paul George is not on the Indiana roster. George, who will be a free agent in 2018, demanded a trade, and the Pacers shipped him to Oklahoma City in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Oladipo has moved right into the starting lineup as a shooting guard, scoring a team-high 22 points in his Indiana debut on Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets. Sabonis came off the bench to score 16 points on 7-of-7 shooting.

"I have no doubt (Oladipo and Sabonis) are starting-caliber player," Pacers general manager Kevin Pritchard told Lindy's Sports. "They are top-level talents."

Oladipo, who starred at the University of Indiana, said he is overjoyed to be playing for the Pacers.

"This is where it all started for me," Oladipo told Lindy's. "I'm a Hoosier. Representing the Pacers organization is a blessing."

Besides trading George, Indiana has had four other rotation players depart -- Monta Ellis, Jeff Teague, C.J. Miles and Rodney Stuckey.

Turner, just 21 and in his third year in the league, is supposed to be one of Indiana's leaders. The 6-foot-11 power forward, a first-round pick out of Texas in 2015, averaged 14.5 points and 7.3 rebounds last season.

Veterans Thaddeus Young at small forward and Darrin Collison at point guard join Oladipo and 3-point shooter Bojan Bogdanovic in the starting lineup. Sabonis is filling in for Turner.

Cory Joseph and Lance Stephenson are the leaders of the Pacers' bench brigade, and coach Nate McMillan has Indiana playing an up-tempo offensive style.

For Miami, Whiteside will be tough to replace. He had a 26-point, 22-rebound performance against Orlando.

"I was wearing padding everywhere but on my knee," Whiteside told The Miami Herald of his injury. "We just have to get the swelling out. It's day to day -- it could've been worse."

Kelly Olynyk, a former Boston Celtics power forward, will likely move from power forward to center. James Johnson could move from the bench to starting power forward.

Miami, which has also won five straight regular-season home games against Indiana, should be confident on Saturday.

This is a veteran Heat team with playoff aspirations, and that's why the Pacers game is important. That 11-30 start the Heat experienced last season is something Miami badly wants to avoid.
