Hawks share the wealth against Grizzlies, win fifth straight

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- When Joe Johnson is shooting like, well, Joe Johnson, and the Atlanta Hawks are sharing the ball and taking care of it the way they did after a slow start Wednesday, they're not going to let a home game get away against a team like the Grizzlies.

The Hawks won their fifth straight game Wednesday, beating Memphis 110-97 as their All-Star guard scored 26 points on 10-for-16 shooting in less than 29 minutes. Johnson had plenty of help, too.

All 11 players who entered the game for Atlanta scored one game after all 12 scored in a 130-107 win Sunday over New Jersey.

For a spell, it looked like Memphis -- which often appears to qualify as a rising team, albeit one still prone to lapse into youthful ways -- might harass the Hawks.

That was largely because Atlanta was letting it get away.

Memphis led 24-22 after the first quarter after the Hawks turned the ball over seven times.

But when they turned it over just three times in the second quarter and made 12 of 21 shots, including nine of 12 from inside the paint, the rout took root.

Atlanta expanded a 51-42 halftime lead to 17 points by the end of the third quarter, when the Hawks coughed the ball up just once in the period.

"We've been sharing the basketball," said Atlanta coach Mike Woodson. "I think earlier in the game we were somewhat selfish, which cost us some turnovers."

It didn't help Memphis that forward Rudy Gay left the game for good with 2:25 left after spraining his right ankle.

Truth be told, the biggest difference in Philips Arena came in the way the Hawks played defense and the Grizzlies tried to -- especially in the second and third quarters, when Atlanta made 26 of 47 shots, including 17 of 24 in the paint.

Coach Lionel Hollins was not tickled. Repeatedly, the Grizzlies were beaten off the dribble, and failed to call out switches.

"They are hard to match up against, they're very athletic, and they do a good job of diversifying what they're doing," Hollins said. "They have unique talent. We don't have that kind of versatility. Youth had nothing to do with that. It was turning the ball over, and letting them have layups, and not executing very well. You can't defend layups."

Rookie Sam Young led Memphis with 20 points, but botched an offensive back-door play in the fourth quarter, leading to one of the Grizzlies' 20 turnovers. Atlanta scored 33 points off those miscues.

Memphis forward Zach Randolph entered the game leading the NBA in offensive rebounds (4.7 per game), but all 10 of his caroms Wednesday were on the defensive end. Atlanta provided a nightmarish matchup problem on the boards (although the fourth quarter skewed the final statistics), as the Grizzlies had just eight offensive rebounds through three quarters in falling behind 83-66.

"We just couldn't do anything with their athleticism," said Memphis center Marc Gasol, who had 14 points and eight rebounds. "The way they switched and boxed out hurt us tonight. Al Horford is a great offensive rebounder, and Josh Smith is coming from the outside to box out."

Memphis has lost three of four games, but is a respectable 9-7 since a 1-8 start, and not long ago beat the Mavericks and Cavaliers in consecutive games.

Young players, when particularly talented like O.J. Mayo (15 points), Gasol, and point guard Mike Conley (12 points, five assists), can if given enough time together usually figure out how to score pretty regularly.

Teaching them how to consistently dig in on defense can be another matter.

Gay had an off night with 11 points, but, like Hollins, harped on getting stops.

"It's a mentality," he said. "Defense is not something that kids come out of college wanting to do. It's learned behavior, and just being around winners, and people who know how to win, how to play defense. There are a lot of people out there less athletic than other people, and they can lock people down. It's not how fast you are, and how strong you are. It's position."

The way Atlanta is clicking, it didn't matter whether starters or reserves were on the floor. The Hawks got 45 points from their bench, led by Maurice Evans (who has averaged 17 points over the past four games, making 25 of 38 shots (65.8 percent) and 14 of 21 3-pointers (66.7).

"Coach's confidence in [the bench] is growing game by game . . . and our starting unit is continuing to play well," Evans said. "When we have 11 or 12 guys contributing, it's tough to stop."

Note: Gay said he would have continued playing through his sprained ankle if the game were closer, and he anticipates playing Friday against Indiana.
