The Heat have surprised me this season and are near the top of the very bunchy Eastern Conference this season.
Memphis is playing just OK this year. It kind of looks like the league might be passing them and their style of play by.
The Heat are just behind Atlanta in the Southeast Division, missing a chance to close ground last night while losing to Brooklyn.
The duo of Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade has been very good, averaging 18ppg each, but players like Goran Dragic and Luol Deng have not performed as expected. Especially Dragic who ha snot lived up to the contract they gave him in the offseason.
At the same time Hassan Whiteside is proving that last year’s breakout was no fluke. He is averaging 12/11 and is one of the most fearsome post defenders with four blocks per game. His game is not the smoothest but the results are there.
Turning things around on the road in the second game of a back to back is not going to be very easy. Players are going to have to step up.
The Grizzlies are definitely having an up and down season. Injuries and suspensions are keeping it frmo being the kind of consistent force we are used to.
One thing that hasn’t changed is that this is one of the most physical teams in the league. They will beat you up if you let them.
I am not sure why but Mike Conley has been off this season. His shooting has been off and he definitely has not been among the elite point guards in the league this season. They need him to be better.
This team is desperate for more shooting and they are not getting it from Matt Barnes, now suspended.
Memphis is always a tough out but they are no longer a team that others fear playing

As usual it is going to be all about whether they can get their shots to fall. They have such a small margin for error this season.
