Tips For Betting On Grizzlies Heat – Grizzlies Take On Ascendant Heat In Contrast Of Styles

As the calendar turns to March, LeBron James looks to carry his historic February with him as the Heat continue their climb to home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference.

Memphis Grizzlies @ Miami Heat – Friday, March 1

Why Memphis Will Win

The high-stakes poker games that take place on a nightly basis in the NBA require an imposing presence on the floor, and Memphis has this in the low post. The Grizzlies are one of the best teams in the NBA at slowing the game down and more or less “compacting” everything into the halfcourt. The Brooklyn Nets are the only team in the NBA which plays a slower-paced game than the Grizzlies. That will be a big key in this matchup. The Heat feed off the energy of their building, and that is often fueled by transition dunks and alley-oops. Memphis should make this tough to come by for Miami.

Secondly, if there’s one area you can get at the Heat, it is in the paint. The Indiana Pacers have shown time and time again that strong frontcourt play can abuse a Heat front line that is void of many big bodies or overall strength. The Grizzlies, behind the combo of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, possesses the necessary duo to give the Heat fits. Randolph has always been a monster of the offensive glass, and that holds true again this season, with over four offensive rebounds per game. Just because the first shot misses doesn’t guarantee anything.

The Grizzlies, between Tayshaun Prince and Tony Allen, bring two strong wing defenders into the fold that will challenge LeBron and Dwayne Wade. If those two can keep even one of the two from having a big night, the Grizzlies have a shot.

Why Miami Will Win

People in the football betting world who don't pay all that much attention to NBA basketball have probably still managed to realize that the Heat have been dominant at home all season and have been playing their best basketball of the year for a month. When you get the defending NBA champions playing at that level, it almost doesn’t matter who the opponent is; that team will be in for an uphill battle. LeBron James will give either of the Grizzlies' wing defenders problems with his size and strength.

He has his jump shot falling at a ridiculous rate, making him nearly uncoverable at the moment. The Heat also have the ability to lock up offenses, and the Grizzlies get little to nothing out of their backcourt or their wings since Rudy Gay was dealt to Toronto. Miami’s offense is tied with Oklahoma City as the most efficient in the NBA. It should be up to the challenge of facing the second most efficient defense in the league.

The Heat, for all the flash they bring to the floor most nights, just don’t turn the basketball over that much. If the Grizzlies can’t get quick baskets, it is hard to see how they will score enough on the road to win.

Who Will Win

You don’t poke beehives, you don’t take more than a 10-minute shower at someone else’s house, and you don’t pick against the best basketball player in the world when he is playing at the height of his game. Take the Heat and be confident about it.
