Memphis Grizzlies v Atlanta Hawks

The Hawks fell to 1-4 this preseason with a 90-82 loss to the Grizzlies. Memphis got 22 points from Jerryd Bayless, who shot 89 percent from the field and was a perfect 6-6 from three-point range. Atlanta struggled shooting the ball, particularly from the outside as they were 25 percent from three-point range on the evening and just 34.6 percent from the field overall.

– Despite the overall struggles, Paul Millsap shined in his 25 minutes of work scoring 19 points on 8-11 shooting and hauling in eight boards. Millsap also did well on Zach Randolph, holding him to four points on 1-4 shooting with five rebounds and three turnovers. After a rough night against the Spurs on Friday, it was good to see him bounce back with a big game against one of the best frontcourts in the NBA.

Al Horford spent much of his afternoon battling with Marc Gasol which proved a difficult task for both players offensively. Horford had eight points on 3-7 shooting with five rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes. Gasol had 10 points on 4-10 shooting with three rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes. Both players did well defensively to deny the other position inside and contested outside shots.

Jeff Teague had one of his best games of the preseason with 15 points (5-9 shooting) and five assists. Teague looked to be more comfortable running the offense in this game than he has earlier in the preseason and did well finding his shot and distributing the ball.

The bench struggled on the evening as they went a combined 7-39 from the field. Cartier Martin had a poor night offensively going 1-12 and looked to be forcing his shot at times. Dennis Schröder got back on the court and went 3-10 for six points along with five boards and one assist. Dennis’ biggest impact was defensively, which is expected, as he continues to develop a consistent offensive game.

The Hawks defense looked pretty good, especially on the inside where Millsap, Horford and Pero Antic did well to keep the Grizzlies out of deep post position and contested shots at the rim. The Grizzlies did most of their damage from the outside, shooting 9-14 from three, led by Bayless’ three-point onslaught.

    I wonder does Paul Millsap realize how gifted of a player he is. His skill level is above average but offensively he’s a below average scorer/rebounder(14-7). What gives? He should be putting up all star numbers(25-11)every night. Is the guy afraid of the spotlight or something?
