The Grizzlies are 2-0 and searching for another victory while the Hawks are at 1-2 so far, looking direly to avoid another loss.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been a legit challenger for the Atlanta Hawks. Both teams have quite similar scores and patterns. In fact, in the 2016-17 NBA season, both teams won 43 and lost 39 against each other. For the Grizzlies, Mike Conley was the highest points scorer with a 20.5 average, and for the Hawks, it was Paul Millsap with an 18.1. In both offense and defense, the Hawks were better (by 2.7 and 4.0 points respectively).
The Memphis Grizzlies are in a good form. The team is, in general, an improvement over the last year’s team. The Grizzlies, no doubt, are a few of the really strong teams this season. Mike Conley, as usual, leads the team in points and assists (20.5 and 6.3, respectively). JaMychal Green leads the team in rebounds (7.1).
The Grizzlies are coming off from a great victory over the Philadelphia 78ers (110-89). Memphis was good at the shots. 46.7% vs 34.8% advantage against Philadelphia. Further, the Grizzlies were really good at the defense as well.
The Hawks are currently 1-2, which is a concern for the team and its fans. It seems as if the Grizzlies are in a much better form than the Atlanta team, and that could mean that the Atlanta leave the McCamish Pavilion with a 1-3 NBA score at the end, which is not a good sign, put aside being an acceptable tally for the season’s beginning.
They lost to Miami Heat 90-96 and to the Detroit Pistons 87-109. Between these two matches, they won against the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-93. Dennis Schroder leads the team in points and assists, with averages of 17.9 and 6.3 respectively. Ersan Ilyasova at 5.8 is the team leader in rebounds.
