The Memphis Grizzlies snapped their five game losing streak after they beat the Milwaukee Bucks in their last outing 113-93. While out in the Eastern Conference the Atlanta Hawks weren’t as lucky, falling short to the San Antonio Spurs 107-99.
Memphis was able to end their five game losing skid last game, and defense and the play of Vince Carter had a huge part to do with that.
The Grizzlies held Khris Middleton to 2 of 8 shooting from the field, while Giannis Antetokounmpo wasn’t any better shooting 6 for 14. The play of those two stagnated the Bucks offense, because they rely on them to produce.
However, it wasn’t just that. Vince Carter’s scoring also allowed the Grizzlies offense to get going.
He scored 24 points on 8 of 8 shooting from the field, and a perfect 6 of 6 shooting from deep.
His scoring production really helped elevate the Grizzlies offense, now it just comes down to doing it again next game.
If Memphis can get that same scoring output from him, they’ll have themselves a chance at making it two wins in a row.
The Atlanta Hawks fell short to the San Antonio Spurs in their last matchup. And that wouldn’t have been the case had it not been for their lackadaisical play in the first quarter.
San Antonio outscored Atlanta 28-18 in the period. But Atlanta continued fighting back, however by then it was a little too late.
The hole they’d dug themselves into earlier was too much to overcome, and because of that they ended up falling short.
But there are still some positives to take away. Atlanta learned what not to do next outing.
They can’t come out with little to no energy and expect to win, that just isn’t possible. So Atlanta needs to be ready to bring it for 48 minutes if they hope to earn the “W” against Memphis.
