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 improve on road vs. Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers, who have the worst record in the Eastern Conference, will play host to the Miami Heat on Monday night in a rematch game.

Miami whipped the Cavaliers 124-105 on Saturday night, improving to 23-3 at home.

"It's a beautiful thing we've created," Heat center Bam Adebayo said of Miami's home-court advantage. "We want to keep it going."

However, as good as the Heat have been at home, they have struggled on the road, playing to a 13-17 record away from American Airlines Arena.

But the Cavaliers may not be able to take advantage of Miami's road weakness, considering that Cleveland is just 7-22 at home this season.

Miami has beaten Cleveland eight straight times -- regardless of the location -- but the Cavaliers are still hopeful.

"We're going to take a lot of good lessons from here," Cavaliers forward Cedi Osman said after Saturday's loss in Miami.

Osman, who led the Cavaliers with 19 points on Saturday, is a 6-foot-8 24-year-old from Macedonia who has shown some potential.

In 2015, he was the first pick of the second round -- No. 31 overall -- for the Minnesota Timberwolves, who traded him to Cleveland on draft night.

Osman, who has played for Turkey's national team, has had more than one big game against the Heat. On Jan. 25, 2019, he posted a career-high 29 points in a 100-94 loss to Miami. His scoring average has gone from 3.1 points as a rookie to 13.0 last season and 11.0 in the current campaign.

Guard Collin Sexton, a 6-1 speedster in his second year in the league, leads the Cavaliers in scoring this season (19.8). But Sexton doesn't have great court vision, and his assist totals are low for a starting point guard - 3.0 last season and 2.8 in the current campaign.

In fairness, Sexton doesn't have much in the way of passing options on this struggling Cavaliers team. That was especially true on Saturday, when power forward Kevin Love sat out for the second time in three games due to a foot injury.

Love, a five-time All-Star and an NBA champion in 2016, is averaging 17.5 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

Miami is also playing shorthanded. Rookie guard Tyler Herro -- who has been a terrific shooter off the bench and has lived up to the hype as a first-round pick from the University of Kentucky -- and starting power forward Meyers Leonard have each missed seven straight games due to ankle injuries.

In addition, Miami's top player, five-time All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler, missed Saturday's game due to personal issues.

Butler leads Miami in scoring (20.6), assists (6.2) and steals (1.8). He also makes 83.6 percent from the foul line and attempts more free throws (9.1 per game) than anyone on the Heat.

Without him on Saturday, the Heat didn't get to the line as much - rookie guard Kendrick Nunn led the way with six free throws.

The Heat, though, still have a lot of firepower, including Adebayo, a versatile player who has emerged as an All-Star in 2019-2020 in his first season as a full-time starter. He is averaging 16.0 points, a team-high 10.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists. He had a team-high nine assists against Cleveland on Saturday.

Nunn is averaging 15.5 points, and Miami's bench is potent with players such as Goran Dragic (16.1 points, 5.0 assists) and Jae Crowder (16.2 points, 6.0 rebounds).
