The NBA is back in action today as the Atlanta Hawks will clash with Memphis Grizzles.
Atlanta comes in after an away defeat in the game against the Wizards with a score of 118-112.
And on the other side, Memphis suffered a 96-121 defeat in the game against the Mavericks.
Atlanta Hawks Form
The Hawks managed to get two wins in a row. However, they took a step back as they lost in their last game against Memphis and in the game against the Wizards. Therefore, the team is still in the basement of the Southeast Division, 21.5 games behind the Heat for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is 14th, 8.5 games behind Orlando for the final playoff spot. The Hawks are not having a good season overall, same as the last season. The only positive is that they have some young and upcoming players. And that is something that the Hawks should be looking at for their future.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hawks scored an average of 111.1 points per game. And that is the 17th scoring record in the league. Also, Atlanta has an average of 43 boards a night combined with 23.8 assists per contest. As for the defensive side of the game, Atlanta is 29th in the league in scoring defence as they allow opponents to score 119.2 points per game this season.
Memphis Grizzlies Form
The Grizzlies were on a good run before their game against the Mavericks. Moreover, they have suffered probably an expected defeat in that game against Dallas. Therefore, they still have the winning momentum in their side as they have been solid in the previous week. Also, the Grizzlies won the last meeting between these two teams in Atlanta 127-88 on Mar. 2. So the expectation is they are heading into this game as the favourites.
On the offensive side of the game, the Grizzles score an average of 123 points per game. Also, they have 43.2 boards per game combined with 24.2 assists per night.
As for the defensive side of the game, the Grizzles concede an average of 105.1 points per game.
The Hawks suffered a defeat in the game against a tired Wizards team. And that just showed their lack of depth in the squad. And on the other side, the Grizzlies are 4-2 in their last six on the second night of a back-to-back coming into this one. Look for the Grizzlies to win this one.
