The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies this morning by a tight 116-117 in a preseason game. Thus, with their triumph, the Hawks equal their balance in the preparation phase at 2-2, while Memphis adds their first defeat in four games played.

Danilo Gallinari already shows his stripes as a leader in the Atlanta team, which he arrived this summer as a free agent from the Thunder. The Italian stood out with 19 points. In addition, he has been accompanied in the offensive work by five other players with at least ten points in their locker, including Cam Reddish (18), Kevin Huerter (16), and John Collins (15 points and 6 rebounds).

The Grizzlies, meanwhile, have released their loss record despite 17 points from an accurate from the triple (five of eight) Dillon Brooks. Ja Morant’s 15 points, De’Anthony Melton’s 14 and Grayson Allen’s 13 have added more resources for Memphis.

After a great start for the Grizzlies, the Hawks have been growing with the passing of the minutes. Atlanta has rebuilt to a 17-29 starting point to even the game in the second and third quarters. Of course, it was in the last when he beat the Grizzlies 36-25, who have seen victory slip away in this way.

At 113-115, McDermott had a 3-pointer with 33 seconds remaining to put Memphis ahead. However, he has not entered and the Hawks have sentenced the game before Buchanan reduced differences on the horn.
