The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Heat last 6 overall. The under is 8-2 in Grizzlies last 10 overall. The Heat are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Miami Heat are on the end of a back to back, which can cause problems against a young, athletic Grizzlies squad, but they're playing their best ball of the season and looking more and more like the team we saw in the NBA bubble. The Memphis Grizzlies have been on the struggle bus since the second half of the season started, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 3.2 points while allowing 47.9 percent shooting from the field. It's hard not to lay the bucket with the Heat given the way they're playing. I'll back Miami.
