MIAMI - Season Results
 Team StatsOpp Stats
8/12/2020*OKLAHOMA CITY              
INDIANA: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in first round.
COACH: Nate McMillan (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Malcolm Brogdon (15.6 ppg), G Jeremy Lamb (15.3 ppg), F Domantas Sabonis (14.1 ppg), F T.J. Warren (18.0 ppg), C Myles Turner (13.3)
KEY LOSSES: F Thaddeus Young, F Bojan Bogdanovic, G Darren Collison, G Cory Joseph, G Tyreke Evans
KEY ADDITIONS: Brogdon, Lamb, Warren, G T.J. McConnell, F Justin Holiday
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The big question heading into this season is when will two-time All-Star Victor Oladipo return from a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee? He's not expected back until at least December and when he does start playing, it's unclear how long it will take him to return to form. Until then, this will be Turner's team and everyone will be watching how this new starting lineup plays together. Indiana expects Brogdon to play like the $85 million man while Sabonis moves from a valuable backup role into the starting lineup for the first time. Sabonis and Turner being paired together give the Pacers a more traditional two big-man look.
OUTLOOK: The Pacers know it will take time for all the new faces to get acclimated in sync, and they expect some rough patches early. But the offseason moves should give Indiana more scoring punch and better balance offensively. Defensively, it will be interesting to see how Sabonis or Turner defends the perimeter. But if the Pacers have a solid start and Oladipo is back to full strength before the All-Star break, they could become a surprise contender in the Eastern Conference.
MIAMI: LAST SEASON: 39-43, finished in 10th place in Eastern Conference.
COACH: Erik Spoelstra (12th season, 523-363).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Justise Winslow (12.6 ppg), G Dion Waiters (12.0), G Jimmy Butler (18.7 with Minnesota and Philadelphia), F Kelly Olynyk (10.0), C Bam Adebayo (8.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Dwyane Wade, G Josh Richardson, C Hassan Whiteside, G Rodney McGruder.
KEY ADDITIONS: Butler, G Tyler Herro, F-C Meyers Leonard.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler gets a team to call his own, and assumes the role of locker-room leader in the place of Wade ' who retired after 16 seasons, most of them with Miami. The Heat are hoping for healthier years from Waiters and PG Goran Dragic, after both missed about half of last season. Herro, the No. 13 pick in this year's draft, had a strong summer league and followed that up with big numbers in the preseason so he'll clearly be in the mix somewhere. Adebayo enters his first full year as the starting center, a job he won down the stretch last season, and will get help from fellow bigs Olynyk and Leonard. Winslow wants to be a leader for the group, but has missed 94 games in the last three seasons.
OUTLOOK: The Heat haven't won a playoff series since 2016 and are only 124-122 over the last three seasons, yet believe they can get back into more of a postseason-contender role ' even without Wade, who was the team's best player last season. Getting Butler was a major boost and he'll unquestionably be the key to everything Miami does, though he won't be asked to carry the load by himself. Defense wasn't the problem for Miami last season after the Heat finished No. 2 in the league in points allowed; the biggest issue was inconsistent offense, which figures to get better.
Butler, Warren get anticipated rematch as Heat face Pacers

The Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers, tied for fourth place in the Eastern Conference at 43-27, will meet on Monday night near Orlando.

Since the NBA's restart began, the Pacers have matched the Toronto Raptors as the best team in the Eastern Conference with identical 4-1 records. Indiana wing player T.J. Warren is the league's top scorer in the restart, averaging an impressive 34.8 points on 60.5 percent shooting from the floor and 55.6 percent shot-making on three-pointers.

"He's on a different planet right now," Pacers teammate Victor Oladipo said. "I don't need to encourage him. He's going to put the ball in the rim regardless of who is out there."

The last time the Pacers and Heat played was Jan. 8, a 122-108 Miami victory. Warren and Heat star Jimmy Butler got into a verbal skirmish during that game. Warren, held to three points in 23 minutes, was ejected, and Butler blew him kisses as the Pacers now breakout star exited the court.

Ironically, Butler has missed the past three games due to a sore right foot, although he is expected to return against Indiana. Butler, a five-time All-Star, leads Miami in scoring, assists and steals.

The Heat have dropped two straight games and fell Saturday to the Phoenix Suns, who at 5-0 in the restart are even hotter than the Pacers.

The Heat were without three of their top four scorers against Phoenix: Butler, Goran Dragic (sprained left ankle) and Kendrick Nunn (Covid-19 quarantine).

Dragic, like Butler, is expected to return for Indiana. Nunn, who left the bubble for personal reasons, will miss the Pacers game because he needs to quarantine for at least four days.

"We want to get healthy," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Our No. 1 priority is getting ready for the playoffs."

One trend to watch for the Heat is the rise of 20-year-old guard Tyler Herro, the former Kentucky Wildcats star and Miami's No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft. With Nunn out against the Suns, Herro -- known primarily as a shooter -- earned just his seventh start of the season and showed a surprising amount of all-around skills.

Herro had 25 points, a career-high 10 assists and eight rebounds.

"I've been working really hard with the ball in my hands," said Herro, the 13th overall selection in the 2019. "I'm still young. I'm learning a lot, and my teammates are trusting me more."

Despite the loss to the Suns, Saturday brought some good news to the Heat as Nunn was named one of three finalists for NBA Rookie of the Year. In addition, Heat center Bam Adebayo was named one of three finalists for the NBA's Most Improved Player award.

Meanwhile, the Pacers beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 116-111, on Saturday night, holding superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis to a combined 39 points in 70 minutes.

In that same game, Warren scored 39 points in 37 minutes, making 15-of-22 shots from the floor, including 5-of-8 on three-pointers. He also went 4-for-4 on free throws and had one assist.

Hey, who needs multiple assists when you are shooting like Warren?

"I'm in a groove," Warren said. "During the time off, I stayed locked in and in love with the game."

Warren said he is meditating more, so maybe that's the reason for his offensive explosions. In his first game in the Orlando bubble Warren scored 53 points against the Philadelphia 76ers, and he's been rolling since.

But it's not like he wasn't a competent scorer before the relocation to the bubble. He is averaging 19.9 points this season, and averaged 19.6 points per game in 2017-2018.

"He's taking shots he can make," said Pacers coach Nate McMillan, keeping it simple. 'He's not forcing anything."
