It’s an inter-conference showdown between two probable playoff teams in their respective conferences as the Atlanta Hawks travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies.
Although both teams are essentially locks for the playoffs, neither has been playing particularly good basketball lately.
The Atlanta Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak on Wednesday, defeating the Brooklyn Nets 110-105. This will be the second night of a back-to-back as they host the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
The Memphis Grizzlies are currently on a four-game losing streak and have probably hit the lowest point of their season. They fell at home to the Clippers on Thursday 114-98.
The Hawks faced a tough schedule last week and lost three in a row to the Cavaliers, Pacers and Warriors.
All of the losses were at home, which has to make it worse for Atlanta. They snapped the streak against the NBA’s worst team, the Brooklyn Nets, on Wednesday but were far from impressive in the five-point victory.
Atlanta is currently comfortable in the 5th spot in the Eastern Conference, but the Pacers are creeping up on them.
This will be the second game of a back-to-back for the Hawks; they will host the 3rd place Toronto Raptors on Friday.
The Hawks rank 20th in the league in scoring, averaging only 103.9 points per game. They rank 9th in rebounding with 44.2 and 8th in assists with 23.6. The Hawks have played defense relatively well, allowing 104.7 points per game which ranks 10th in the league.
Paul Milsap leads the way for Atlanta, averaging 18.2 points and 7.9 rebounds a night. Dennis Schroder adds 17.7 points and 6.2 assists, and Dwight Howard contributes 13.2 points and 12.9 rebounds per game.
It’s tough to figure out exactly what is going on with the Memphis Grizzlies right now. They thought that the 13-point loss to the worst team in the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets, was the lowest point of the year, but they managed to lose the next game against the Clippers by 16 points.
During this four-game losing streak, the Grizz have lost the last three by double-digits. Coach David Fizdale promises to shuffle the lineup in order to try and get his team out of this funk.
Memphis scores only 101.4 points per game which ranks 27th in the NBA. They rank 21st in rebounding with 41.3 and 24th in assists with 21 per contest. The Grizzlies continue to live only by their defense, which allows only 100.7 points and ranks 4th in the league.
Marc Gasol leads the Grizzlies with 20.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.
Mike Conley runs the offense and averages 20 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest. Zach Randolph adds 14.4 points and 8.3 rebounds a night.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
These are two good basketball teams that are playing bad basketball lately. The Hawks snapped their losing streak but needed all four quarters to pull away from the last-place Nets.
The Grizzlies are still on a four-game skid, but they have the home court advantage and will be more rested. The Hawks play an important game against the Raptors the night before, and that will have an impact.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies -4.5
This should be the game where the Grizz get back on the winning track.
