The Memphis Grizzlies came out on fire Tuesday afternoon against the Miami Heat. Our GBB team revived the “Recapping the Enemy” series that takes a look at the Heat’s perspective of today’s scrimmage.
Memphis torches Miami.
The Memphis Grizzlies happened to have one of the better first halves of the season. Dropping eight three pointers in the first quarter alone, along with 41 points in the first frame.

Then, dropping 69 first half points on the Heat. The Grizzlies led by 17 at the half, and you’d think the Heat actually had traded for some primary defenders, but maybe I’m wrong.

The Hot Hot Hoops team really didn’t tweet about the scrimmage, as it seemed that it wasn’t of importance, due to the Heat getting absolutely annihilated by Memphis juggernaut of an offense.
Feelings weren't mutual.
Heat forward Andre Iguodala scored for the first time against his former team with 8:51 remaining in the fourth quarter of a blow out, and the Heat bench was LIT!
Then, two former teammates got into it at the rim. An elbow from Jonas Valanciunas led to Jae Crowder taking offense to that move, even when Jonas tried to dap Crowder up.

The Memphis Grizzlies would go onto drop 128 points on the Heat, and win their third and final scrimmage by a score or 128-110. Memphis ended their “preseason” on a good note, playing very solid for four quarters heading into their first seeding matchup on Friday afternoon against the Portland Trail Blazers
