WHEN- 7:00 PM CT
WHERE- AmericanAirlines Arena
HOW TO WATCH/LISTEN- Fox Sports Southeast/92.9 FM ESPN Memphis
The Memphis Grizzlies had their six-game winning streak snapped last night by the Miami Heat. That is the bad news. The good news is that the Grizzlies have a chance at revenge tonight, as they play the second of the rare home and road back to back against the same opponent tonight against Miami.
Memphis will again be without Zach Randolph, who is away from the team due to the death of his mother. Chandler Parsons, James Ennis, -and Brandan Wright remain out for the Grizzlies due to injury.
Memphis must shoot the basketball better tonight in South Beach if they hope to pull out the victory. The combination of Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Troy Daniels, Andrew Harrison, and Vince Carter shot 12-46, or 26%, from the field as a group against the Heat last night. It's pretty simple to see what the key to tonight’s contest is.
Memphis should hopefully shoot better tonight, while maintaining their current level of defense, on their way to a victory in Miami.
