What to Know
This Monday, the Atlanta Hawks are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 119.11 points per game. They will square off against the Memphis Grizzlies at 7:30 p.m. ET Monday at State Farm Arena. The Hawks know how to get points on the board -- the team has finished with flashy point totals in its past three matchups -- so hopefully Memphis likes a good challenge.
Atlanta didn't have too much trouble with the Portland Trail Blazers at home this past Saturday as they won 129-117. Atlanta's success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but point guard Trae Young led the charge as he dropped a double-double on 25 points and 15 dimes. That's five consecutive double-doubles for Young.
Meanwhile, Memphis strolled past the Los Angeles Lakers with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the matchup 105-88. Among those leading the charge for the Grizzlies was point guard Ja Morant, who posted a double-double on 27 points and 14 assists in addition to six rebounds.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Atlanta is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Their wins bumped Atlanta to 19-43 and Memphis to 29-31. We'll see who can continue their climb to a .500 record.
