The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game.
The Miami Heat look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Miami Heat are averaging 106.4 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 107.1 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 21.2 points and 7.3 assists while Bam Adebayo is averaging 19.3 points and 9.6 rebounds.

The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Heat are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 road games. The over is 6-2 in Heat last 8 home games. The Grizzlies are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Miami and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies are an inconsistent team that's tough to figure out and often struggles defensively in the underdog role. The Miami Heat are playing some of their best ball of the season, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 6.2 points. With improved health and the addition of Victor Oladipo, the Heat will be a team to watch down the stretch. At home, I'll lay the reasonable number with the Heat.
