Memphis Grizzlies vs Miami Heat Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Thursday, March 18th 2021, at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Miami Heat Preview

After a sobering 122-99 defeat away against the Phoenix Suns, Ja Morant and the Grizzlies will look to bounce back in style, hosting a tricky Eastern Conference contender in Miami overnight.

Morant had almost half of his 15 points at the foul line (7-of-10), where Monty Williams' players kept him to another low-scoring game - he averaged 14.5 PPG in two previous H2H meetings this term. 

Jonas Valanciunas led by example with an efficient double-double (24 pts, 17 rebounds), while SG duo Dillon Brooks (13 pts) and Grayson Allen (15 pts, four ast) were the other Grizzlies into double-digit scoring. 

Valanciunas is capable of leading by example, as evidenced by his ten 20-point games this term, though it's clear their success is centred around Morant and his ability - or lack thereof - to produce efficient shooting numbers.

The 2019-20 Rookie of the Year has suffered from troublesome injuries this term, but perhaps more worryingly, his FG% (44.7) and 3P% (24.7) are down on his debut campaign. Can they bounce back against Erik Spoelstra's men here, who have won four straight? 

Memphis Grizzlies vs Miami Heat Betting Tips

After a sluggish start to the season where they began 6-12, Miami is hitting their stride as the campaign's business months continue. Their 113-98 win over Cleveland means they have 11 victories from their last twelve games, an impressive feat they will not want to stop on the road here - even in the second of a back-to-back.

ESPN's BPI has them as favourites (61.3%), and I'm also backing a hard-fought road win here.
