Miami lost to the Grizzlies a few weeks ago on a last-second layup by Ja Morant that ended the Heat’s six-game win streak and sent them into a downfall before the trade deadline. But, on the heels of winning four straight and playing inspired team basketball, the Heat are soaring high. And it appears that the Heat are nearly fully healthy heading into this matchup.
The Grizzlies just smacked the Philadelphia 76ers a few nights ago as their starters put a hurting on the +/- for that game. Memphis can play with anyone when they shoot the ball well. They are one of the top assists teams in the NBA and also have a top 10 defense. However, they are mediocre everywhere else.
Let’s see if Jimmy Butler gets fired up again with Dillon Brooks guarding him.
ODDS: FiveThirtyEight gives the Heat a 70% chance to win the game.
