Last year, in their only matchup, Memphis defeated Miami on the road, 97-82. Now with their two biggest stars ailing, the Miami Heat might not be at full strength in a matchup between two of the league's hottest teams. Memphis is looking for a fifth straight victory. Dwyane Wade. The All-Star guard is considered day-to-day as he recovers from an illness that sidelined him in Friday's 95-89 win at Atlanta. Zach Randolph leads Memphis with 15 rebounds per game. The Grizzlies (4-1), one of the league's best rebounding teams at 44.8 per game, seem to make the most of their work on the boards. They're shooting 42.9 percent from the field, but are still averaging 100.0 points. Memphis is also limiting their opponents to an average of 90.8 points per game during its winning streak. Shooting guard Tony Allen, one of the league's top defenders, held James Harden to 4-of-18 from the field in their win over Houston on Friday. Harden had been averaging 30.3 points per game.
