The Memphis Grizzlies Look to Cool the Miami Heat

By: Brendan Smart (@bsmart21)

When the Memphis Grizzlies and Miami Heat come together, in Summer League or the Regular season they always seem to make it a game. Both teams in their own respectfully way rebuilding. Saturdays third round matchup is going to be one of the toughest test the Grizzlies have faced throughout their unbeaten run in the 2017 Summer League.

Today, second year play Deyonta Davis will have his hands full around the basket. Davis will have the pleasure of guarding Bam Adebayo, who I see as their only threat. Other guys to note, Okaro White a forward who is averaging 41%, and 18 points per game is another guy to watch for.

Memphis Looking To Sweep in the Unbeaten City

When you go to the city of Las Vegas, do you ever really win? Gambling, drinking, and very little eating doesn't sound like a healthy win, right? The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to change those odds.

Going a strong (3-0) in the three preliminary games, the Grizzlies earned a first round bye for the tournament. Entering the Vegas tournament with 60-1 odds to win the championship, Memphis is looking to upset the Vegas system.

This team is very well constructed with play makers and young defensive specialist. Second year point guard Wade Baldwin IV hasn't changed his offensive game, consisting of straight line drives, and prayer shots, but he plays really good defense. Also, second year guard Wayne Selden Jr., has played both ends of the floor really well. Then, there is the tall tower defending the paint in second year Center Deyonta Davis. Offensive game has been inconsistent, but his defense, and rebounding have been consistently there.

Then, there are the “questionable” players in rookie forward Dillon Brooks, and third year player Jerell Martin. Unlike Brooks, Martin is fighting for a roster spot, and minutes on a playoff team. He has seemed to struggle in several games throughout the preliminary games, but has shown signs of what he can do. Now, Brooks has the goods, no questions asked. Not afraid of the moment, and learning when to take his shots throughout the game. Brooks is the future wing of the Grizzlies, and it is exciting to watch.

The Grizzlies opponent tonight is the Phoenix Suns (2-2). The Suns coming in off of a big first round win against the Utah Jazz yesterday. With having a little over 24 hours to rehab the Suns will have their hands full with a quick, and defensive team in the Grizzlies.

You can catch the game on NBA TV tonight at 8:00 ET, and follow @blu3worldorder on twitter for live updates.
