Game Story:

The Miami Heat (19-7) visit the Memphis Grizzlies (9-17) on Monday night in the second of three games on their current road trip.

After a thrilling overtime victory in Dallas, the Heat will have to be careful not to look overlook their current opponent in anticipation of their nationally broadcast rematch against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

Though the Grizzlies have already lost 11 times at the FedEx Forum, they have won three of their last four games and have their own dynamic rookie with Ja Morant, who is averaging 18.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game.

Justise Winslow (back) and Goran Dragic (groin) continue to be listed by the Heat as day-to-day.

FiveThirtyEight gives the Heat a 50% chance to win, though ESPN’s Basketball Power Index is more generous with a 69.2% edge.

Heat:

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Meyers Leonard
