Game Recap

Marc Gasol looked to be in midseason form, scoring the first 10 points of the game for Memphis, and had 12 points in the first quarter. The Grizzlies attacked the lane in the first half, scoring 24 points in the paint while also getting to the free throw line, going 18-of-23 (.783) from the charity stripe.

Including a Chandler Parsons four-point play at the 1:15 mark and a Dillon Brooks jumper with 0.5 seconds left in the second quarter, the Grizzlies closed the first half and opened the second half on a 20-4 run over a span of 5:56 to grab an 18-point lead early in the third quarter.

MarShon Brooks caught fire, scoring 16 of his 18 points in the half without missing a shot. The Grizzlies defense harassed the Hawks into 24 turnovers in the game. Atlanta mounted a comeback effort by outscoring Memphis 36-22 in the fourth quarter, but the deficit was too much for the Hawks to overcome.

Gasol would lead all scorers with 21 points while going 10-of-11 from the free throw line. Brooks finished with 18 points off the bench on a perfect 7-for-7 (3-3 3PT) shooting night, marking the second-straight game a Grizzlies player made all field goal attempts (min. six attempts) off the bench. JaMychal Green added 13 points and nine rebounds. Mike Conley and Parsons reached double-digits for the second-straight game, as they both scored 11 points.

Tyler Dorsey led the Hawks with 18 points. Rookie Trae Young added 15. Alex Len, Kent Bazemore, DeAndre’ Bembry and Alex Poythress all chipped in with 10 points each.
