The NBA preseason continues Tuesday when eight teams hit the hardwood. The biggest matchup features the Oklahoma City Thunder visiting the Chicago Bulls at the United Center (8 p.m. ET on NBA TV).

Both teams enter the contest with 3-2 overall records, but the Thunder are looking for their first road victory of the exhibition slate. Oklahoma's Russell Westbrook (14.8 point per game) and Richard Hamilton (15.3 ppg) enter the contest as their teams' top scorers.

Miami Heat (3-2) at Charlotte Bobcats (1-4) - 7 p.m.: The defending champions visit a franchise that it has dominated in recent history, especially in the preseason. The Heat are 5-1 overall against the Bobcats in exhibition play and swept the 2012-13 season series 3-0, including a 39-point blow out last January.

It's expected the Heat will start LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.

Indiana Pacers (3-2) at Cleveland Cavaliers (3-3) - 7 p.m.: The Cavs' host the Pacers at Quicken Loans Arena. This will be Indiana's second-to-last exhibition game, while this will be Cleveland's preseason finale.
