Grizzlies top Hawks in preseason game No. 3, 110-102

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Atlanta Hawks, 110-102, in a much better showing in their third preseason game.

It was nice to see Mike Conley draining threes for the Grizzlies tonight, hitting all five of his attempts. Hey, we're not asking for much, but how about just making two of them per game, Conley, at about 40 percent from beyond the arc? Please?

The Grizzlies shot an impressive 10-of-21 from the three-point line, making it one of their better performances in, oh, years. Wayne Ellington hit two, Quicny Pondexter hit two and Rudy Gay added one. Unfortunately, Jerryd Bayless missed all three of his attempts, but he did look much, much better running the offense, dishing seven dimes and turning the ball over twice in 27 minutes. A much improved performance by Bayless.

In all, the Grizzlies looked good, specifically Conley and Zach Randolph who was up to his old tricks, posting a highly efficient 14 and 10 in 32 minutes. Man, I hope Randolph is all the way back... please let him be all the way back!

Here's your nifty little chart from NBA.com, which thankfully, for Pondexter, doesn't count posterized dunks:
