After the Memphis Grizzlies’ final scrimmage against the Miami Heat, Memphis seems prepared for their eight seeding games.

The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Miami Heat 128-110 in the final scrimmage game for both of the teams involved. When the season officially picks up, the Miami Heat will have their first seeding game at 1 PM EST on Saturday against the Denver Nuggets, and the Memphis Grizzlies will kick off their season Friday at 4 PM EST against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Both teams came into the scrimmage with what is assumed to be their starting lineups for the seeding games, and in many ways this was the first showcase of how both teams will fair in the bubble. If that is the case, things are looking good down on Beale Street.

Memphis did exactly what they needed to do in this one: control the pace, stop the inside game, and don’t miss easy shots. The Grizzlies stepped right up to the plate against a tough Eastern Conference opponent, and took a win in spite of a few missteps.

So–with an honorable win mention to Memphis getting an impressive victory over Andre Iguodala’s new team and an honorable lose mention to all of the angry Heat fans on my Twitter timeline after the game–here are some of the best and worst moments from the game.
