The Miami Heat snapped their streak of 17 consecutive victories at home against Rudy Gay and the Memphis Grizzlies Friday night.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for 60 points but it wasn't enough, as the Heat trailed the Grizzlies for the entire game.

The Memphis Grizzlies got great contribution across the board, finishing with an incredible 7 players in double digits, lead by 17 points from Rudy Gay.

Zach Randolph, who's recently been relegated to a bench role, dominated the Heat for 14 points and a game high 14 rebounds.

Newly acquired free agent Gilbert Arenas hit 4-5 3-pointers and finished with 12 points and O.J. Mayo tallied 10 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists.

Miami shot a dismal 40% for the game and got outscored in bench points 36-19.

Lebron James had a team high 21 points, Dwyane Wade had 20 and Chris Bosh finished with 19 but that was all Miami got offensively.

All Miami Heat players other than the Big 3, shot a combined 9-30 for the game.

Terrel Harris was the one bright spot for the Heat off the bench, who finished with 10 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists in 26 minutes.

Miami will look to bounce back on Sunday when they host the Detroit Pistons.
