Miami Heat vs Memphis Grizzlies: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Miami
Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Heat dropped their second game of the season with their trip to take on red-hot Memphis, falling to the Grizzlies 104-86.

You know when you see Josh Harrellson checking into the game things are either going very bad or very good, this was one of the bad times for Miami.

Miami wasn't just outplayed in this one, they were downright overmatched. 

Maybe the trip all the way to Memphis from Atlanta had them worn down, or perhaps the sight of stars and stripes on the headbands and socks was distracting, but the Heat were downright throttled in this one.

Memphis pulled out to a lead early on, and save for a brief lead by Miami halfway through the first quarter, Memphis never looked back.

So what happened in this one that made the Heat look as bad as they did, or is it just another case of a bad night of basketball like their first loss of the season against the New York Knicks.

It's easy to harp on the fact that Miami got beat resoundingly, but you've also got to give it up to Memphis for putting on an absolute show. They were running and gunning a beautiful balanced attack from the moment the game started. Kudos to them.

Still, it's not every day Miami ends up getting blown out of the water, so this is a little glimpse into Miami's weaknesses that we've got to take a look at.
