The Atlanta Hawks have won eight of their last nine games but face a stiff challenge on Saturday when they travel to Memphis to take on the 14-3 Grizzlies.

The Atlanta Hawks have been rolling having won eight of their last nine and they hit the road on Saturday for a matchup against the Western Conference leading Memphis Grizzlies. Atlanta knocked off Washington 104-95 on Friday behind double-doubles from Josh Smith and Al Horford.

The matchup will feature two of the NBA's best defensive teams. The Grizzlies are allowing a league best 91 points per game while the Hawks are sixth at just over 94 points per game. Memphis has been really good at home going 9-1 this season but Atlanta has won nine of the last 11 meetings.

Memphis is also coming off of a win on Friday night having defeated New Orleans 96-89. Rudy Gay led the way with 28 points in the win.

Atlanta will be without Kyle Korver for the fourth straight game as he continues to recover from a sore back. The team announced on Friday that Korver would not play against the Wizards and would not travel to Memphis.
