A complete Twitter recap of the Grizzlies preseason win against the Atlanta Hawks.

It was happening, and fun.

Pretty standard starting 5. Although, I'd like to see one change made, but that's another topic for another day.

Aggressive Marc indeed. He backed up his offseason promise of being in more of an attacking mode as opposed to a facilitator.

Awesome. Sheer awesomeness.

Signaling the Grizz really are back.

*In my Rick Trotter voice* Again, such an awesome moment.

Jordan Adams showed off his newly shredded body on an incredibly athletic put-back to end the quarter.

Leuer is a big key for the Grizz this season. He showed off his athleticism on this jam, but he was very productive against the Hawks. He finished with 6 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal in 16 minutes.

Grizz went with either a Marc-Kosta or Kosta-Leuer front court for the majority of the game. Jarnell Stokes played exactly 3 seconds. For what it worth, the Kosta-Marc lineup was effective defensively. The Hawks had no answer on the interior.

Give the ball to Marc, and get out of his way.

Grizz played a very solid first half. There were many positive takeaways.

Coach Joerger's rotation was much closer to a regular season rotation than a preseason one. All of the starters played at least 25 minutes.

This was a fun, intriguing lineup.

Ray Allen quick. Maybe quicker.

I have nothing more to add to this.

This also happened.

Mike and Marc were awesome all game long.

The Hawks made a run at it, but Mike Conley said, "YOU WILL GET NONE, AND LIKE IT!"

It was great to see the Grizz not only back in Memphis but also back on the winning side of things (even if it's just preseason.) Marc was awesome. Mike was awesome. Vince Carter (9 points on 3 shots) was awesome. Everything's awesome.
