Grizzlies vs. Heat: 4 Reasons Grizzlies Ended Heat Home-Win Streak

The Grizzlies earned a startling road win on Friday by downing the Miami Heat, 97-82. They put the Heat away early, mounting a 13-point lead less than 10 minutes into the game, and keeping the lead in double digits the rest of the way.

They led the Heat wire-to-wire, something no opponent had done to Miami since the Boston Celtics on Nov. 11, 2010.

Memphis amazed in the win. They hit shots from three-point land, something the 23rd-ranked three-point shooting team seldom does. Also, the Grizzlies won the rebounding battle, which they typically don't do on the road. Then again, it was against a Heat team that is weak at center.

This was a special sight from a Grizzlies team that entered the game 4-11 against .500 teams on the road.

Similarly, it was strange to see such a poor home showing from Miami, which is 23-3 at home and hadn't lost at home since January.

Follow along for a few reasons why the Grizzlies took down the Heat.
