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.
COACH: John Beilein (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Collin Sexton (16.7 ppg), G Darius Garland (Rookie), F Cedi Osman (13.0 ppg), F Kevin Love (17.0 ppg, 22 games), Tristan Thompson (10.9 ppg, 10.2 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Channing Frye, G J.R. Smith.
KEY ADDITIONS: Beilein, Garland, C/F John Henson, G Kevin Porter Jr., G Dylan Windler.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Garland could accelerate the Cavs' rebuilding project. Before a left knee injury cut short his freshman season at Vanderbilt, the 6-foot-2 playmaker was ranked as the top player in his class, ahead of even Zion Williamson. His pairing with Sexton gives Cleveland a young, dynamic backcourt drawing comparisons to Portland's duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Sexton's growth as a rookie was extraordinary, and it will be interesting to see how he blends with Garland, who is more of a traditional point guard. Love's future, which is always in question, could hinge on how quickly the team's youngsters bloom. If the Cavs get the right offer, Love could be traded despite his hopes to stay with Cleveland.
OUTLOOK: Beilein's forte in college was player development and the former Michigan coach appears to be an ideal fit for Cleveland's youth movement. He'll push the Cavs and make sure they play hard, and Love and Thompson will give the squad invaluable leadership. Injuries have sidetracked Love the past few seasons, but the 31-year-old feels physically refreshed and is committed to showing his young teammates what it takes. It's going to be another long season in Cleveland, but there appears to be a promising future.
Heat look to keep cooking against Cavaliers

The Miami Heat are off to their best 10-game start since the Big Three Era in 2013-14, and they've done it by overcoming injuries and absences to their lineup.

The Heat look to keep the temperature on high Thursday when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers, whom they swept in a four-game season series in 2018-19.

"Just finding a way to win," center Bam Adebayo told the Miami Herald after recording 18 points and a season-high 14 rebounds in the Heat's 117-108 victory over Detroit on Tuesday.

"I feel like we relaxed when we got up big and that's when they started to come back, so fighting against adversity is a good thing for us and it's a learning process. It's early. It's the first 10 games and we need that adversity. You need that type of adversity for the beginning of the year, so as the season goes on, we'll be ready for it."

Adversity has come in various forms for Miami, which has seen forwards Derrick Jones Jr. and Justise Winslow encounter various injuries and shooting guard Dion Waiters suspended for 10 games.

Jimmy Butler, who missed the first three games while on paternity leave, scored 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter versus the Pistons. The star swingman also had a season-high 13 assists, three rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers.

"He just really controlled the entire game in the fourth quarter offensively for us," coach Erik Spoelstra said of the 30-year-old Butler. "He choreographed basically every action. Either we got him in the middle against the zone or had him handle up top versus the man or zone going down the stretch. He just reads the game and plays the right way, even when there's some stress and pressure and some tough possessions and the momentum shifting.

"It's a great luxury that we certainly don't take for granted. To be able to put the ball in somebody's hands and you know you're going to get something good in a possession."

Cleveland appeared to be in line for something good as it flirted with its first three-game winning streak dating back to the LeBron James days, however Kevin Love's 3-point attempt rimmed out in the waning moments of Tuesday's 98-97 loss to Philadelphia.

"I'm still in disbelief," Love said. "I knew when it left my hand, I thought it was good, everyone on the team thought it was good. That's why I just threw my hands on the top of my head.

"It's like one of those feelings where you expect everyone to be rah rah and then we get a stop at the other end and we win the game. Then you come in here, sit in this corner and feel how I'm feeling. Couldn't ask for a better shot."

Jordan Clarkson's season-high 20 points matched Love on Tuesday while Tristan Thompson posted his eighth double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Cavaliers.

"People don't expect much from us," Thompson said, via Cleveland.com. "We just have to keep showing everyone and showing the rest of the league that when you come and us, you're going to come for a dogfight."
