Saturday night's Grizzlies vs. Heat live stream online and televised 2016 matchup brings early playoff contender Memphis to struggling Miami's home court. The two teams will meet for the second time of the season, with the 10-6 Grizzlies looking to avenge an earlier home loss. Miami is a team in need of wins as they appear to be a sinking ship. Can the Heat grab this important home victory with several of their players sidelined with injuries? There will be NBA live streaming and televised coverage made available for this latest game.

Miami with the road win

On Friday night, Tyler Johnson helped lead the Heat to a 90-81 victory over this Memphis Grizzlies team.

Johnson tied a career-high with 22 points in the win while Dion Waiters led all starters for the Heat with 15 points. The team's leading scorer, Hassan Whiteside, was limited to four points on the night, but finished with 12 rebounds and two blocks in 27 minutes of game time.

Two players who didn't participate in Friday's win were point guard Goran Dragic (strained left elbow) and small forward Justise Winslow (sore left wrist). They'll both be out of action again for Saturday night's home contest in Miami. The Heat will try to move to 6-10 on the season as they have struggled in the Southeast Division to be part of the early playoff contenders in the Eastern Conference.

Is Memphis among contenders?

Despite the recent loss to Miami, Memphis has quietly remained amongst the top four teams in the Western Conference. Believe it or not, only the Spurs, Warriors, and Clippers have a better record. However, the Houston Rockets are also tied with the Grizzlies for the fourth spot, making each win crucial as the season continues on.

In Friday's loss, guard Mike Conley came off the bench to score 16 points. The Grizzlies won the rebounding battle 51-44 in the previous game but had 17 turnovers compared to just eight for the Heat. Memphis will look to take better care of the ball and shoot better in their next effort to get their winning ways back on track.

Prior to Friday's loss, they'd been on a six-game winning streak, which was right behind the Spurs and Warriors with their latest streaks.

Of note, Memphis is expected to be without forward Zach Randolph for tonight's contest due to the death of his mother.
