Kevin C. Cox

Jeff Teague finished with 22 points and 13 assists as the Atlanta Hawks sweep the season series from the Memphis Grizzlies with a 103-92 win.

The Atlanta Hawks snapped a two game losing streak with a much needed 103-92 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Jeff Teague led the way with 22 points and 13 assists as the Hawks jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

Teague and Josh Smith got the Hawks off to a good start as they jumped out of the gate and led 26-22 after one. The Hawks kept the pressure on in the second pushing the pace and attacking the Grizzlies off the dribble. Penetration forced Memphis' defense to collapse and Atlanta made them pay from long range with some timely three point buckets.

At one point in the second quarter, Larry Drew used a lineup that featured both John Jenkins and Kyle Korver on the court at the same time. The result was a stretched Grizzlies defense and driving lanes for the likes of Teague and Devin Harris who returned to action from a foot injury.

The Hawks put the game away in the third quarter as they began the second half with an 11-0 run to extend the lead to 69-48. Atlanta pushed the lead out to as many as 23 points in the second half before Memphis closed the gap somewhat in the fourth.

Teague went 7-10 from the floor and made all six of his free throw attempts. Atlanta hit more than 60 percent of their shot attempts in the first half and shot 51 percent for the game. Josh Smith had an all around great night finishing with 19 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. Al Horford battled foul trouble early but notched another double-double with 17 points and 11 boards. Kyle Korver finished with 12 and tied Mookie Blaylock's franchise record for consecutive games with a made three at 42.

Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with 20 points while Mike Conley added 17 and eight assists. Jerryd Bayless kicked in 15 off the bench while Marc Gasol finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

With the win, the Hawks sweep the season series between the two teams and win for the 11th time in the last 13 meetings. Atlanta is off on Thursday and will be back in action Friday night when they host Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets.
