Heat basketball is back, as Miami faces off against the Grizzlies at home at 7:30 PM

NBA: Miami Heat at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

After what seemed like the longest offseason of all time, Heat basketball is back! The Heat will open the season against the Memphis Grizzlies at home. Of course, no Heat season is drama free, so it’s worth noting that Dion Waiters will be serving his suspension during the opener after “conduct detrimental to the team”. Otherwise, the Heat seemed poised to deliver a competitive season with a new star in Jimmy Butler and a lot of young talent.

This isn’t one to miss, the Heat will set the tone for the season tonight.

Probable Starters:


  • Jimmy Butler
  • Justise Winslow
  • Kelly Olynyk
  • Tyler Herro
  • Bam Adebayo


  • Jae Crowder
  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
  • Jonas Valanciunas
  • Dillon Brooks
  • Ja Morant
