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.
OKLAHOMA CITY: LAST SEASON: 49-33, lost 4-1 to Portland in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Billy Donovan (fifth season, 199-129).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Chris Paul (15.6 ppg with Houston), G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (10.8 with Los Angeles Clippers), F Danilo Gallinari (19.8 with Clippers), F Andre Roberson (5.0), C Steven Adams (13.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Russell Westbrook, F Paul George, G Jerami Grant, F Markieff Morris, F Patrick Patterson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Paul, Gilgeous-Alexander, Gallinari, Darius Bazley, Justin Patton, Mike Muscala. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Even though the Thunder will be widely expected to struggle this season, the backcourt of Paul and Gilgeous-Alexander ' assuming health ' is certainly good enough to help Oklahoma City contend for a postseason berth. It'll be interesting to see if Paul is energized by the trade, Gilgeous-Alexander is a budding young talent and Gallinari (coming off his best scoring season) is a veteran presence who fits very nicely into today's perimeter-based NBA game.
OUTLOOK: The Thunder went all-in on title-chasing in recent years, and now they're all-in on a reset after trading away Westbrook and George. But this isn't anywhere near a tank; there are plenty of good players on the Thunder roster, and GM Sam Presti has accumulated more than a dozen first-round picks over the next seven years to play with if he's inclined to make a big move. If they can trade Paul, which may still be an option despite the veteran's massive $44 million player option for the 2021-22 season, that would only add more pieces to Presti's plan for an OKC reload.

Because of this information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

After offseason of rumors, Heat & Thunder to finally meet on court

In the wake of the Oklahoma City Thunder's trade of Paul George in the offseason, the Thunder and Miami Heat looked like potential trade partners on multiple occasions.

First, Miami was one potential landing spot for Russell Westbrook.

Instead, Oklahoma City wound up trading the superstar point guard to the Houston Rockets for a package that included veteran Chris Paul.

Then the Heat made the most sense as a trade partner when the Thunder reportedly wanted to trade Paul.

Nothing ever materialized on that end, however, and now Paul will be playing for Oklahoma City when the Thunder host the Heat on Friday night.

Paul has been a strong presence for the Thunder, averaging 16.5 points and 6.5 assists. His 2.1 turnovers per game currently matches his career-low mark set eight seasons ago.

Nonetheless, the Thunder have dropped two of their last three.

In both losses -- first to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday and then Wednesday to Toronto -- Oklahoma City fell behind big early before scraping its way back into the game before ultimately falling short.

"We can't wait that long to impose our will," Paul told reporters recently.

The Thunder have made several big comebacks this season but avoiding flat starts is now a priority for all of Billy Donovan's team.

"We know if there's time on the clock, there's nothing us as a group is not capable of," guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander said. "It's been a little bit of us in the past to get down a little bit -- a lot actually -- to start games. We've just got to figure out a way to not let that happen, and put together a full four quarters."

While the Heat are 28-12 and second in the Eastern Conference, they have struggled away from home.

The Heat are just 10-11 on the road, scoring 7.5 points per game fewer away from AmericanAirlines Arena.

"We definitely have to carry this momentum into the road games," center Bam Adebayo told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "We're going into other people's gyms, and we can't have the same game that we play at home. We've got to have a better game, because we're away.

"Rims look different, atmosphere is different, so just got to go out there and bring more of an edge on the road than we have recently."

The meeting will be the first of the season between the teams. Oklahoma City and Miami split their two games last season.

Oklahoma City could be without both of its primary big men.

Starting center Steven Adams suffered a right knee contusion in Wednesday's loss and will be re-evaluated before the game to determine his status.

Adams' backup, Nerlens Noel, has missed the last six games with a left ankle sprain.

The Heat could be without rookie guard Tyler Herro, who suffered a left knee bruise in Tuesday's practice and missed Wednesday's game.

Heat forward Justise Winslow's status is also unclear. Winslow returned Jan. 8 after missing 15 games with a bone bruise in his back but has missed the last three games with recurrent back issues.
