The Grizzlies added to their streak with another old-fashioned win, this one over a playoff team. Marc Gasol notched a triple double with 18/10/10. Mike Conley added 22 points and 12 assists. Tony Allen was also locked and loaded for this one, with 10 points and all sorts of energy, and Brandan Wright scored 10 in 12 minutes, his third double-digit scoring game of the season.
After a back-and-forth first half, Memphis held Atlanta to just 13 points in the third quarter (on 3-of-15 from the field), building an 18-point edge in the process.
The Hawks pulled within 8 in the fourth quarter, but Gasol’s triple-double was too much to overcome. This is the fifth game in a row that the Grizzlies have held opponents to under 100 points.
