Hawks vs Grizzlies final score: Atlanta comes up short in Memphis 108-101

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Paul Millsap finished with 21 points but the Atlanta Hawks come up short in Memphis 108-101.

The Atlanta Hawks saw their two-game winning streak come to an end in Memphis with a 108-101 loss to the Grizzlies.

Atlanta came into the game on a roll defensively having held their opponents to 91 points or less in each of their last four games. They couldn't sustain that effort in Memphis thanks to some good shooting from the Grizzlies and too many turnovers from their offense that led to easy fast break opportunities.

Memphis shot 52 percent for the game and turned 15 Atlanta turnovers into 25 points. The Grizzlies finished with 20 fast break points and converted on 9-10 opportunities.

Still this game wasn't without its moments and the Hawks once again exhibited their ability to come back from a big deficit. Mike Miller's bucket with 1:55 remaining in the third put the Grizzlies up 77-64. Atlanta then responded with a 16-0 run that took them from down 13 to up three at 80-77 with 10:11 remaining.

Memphis quickly answered and Courtney Lee's three with 8:48 remaining put them back in front for good. The Hawks would continue to threaten but the Grizzlies had an answer every time.

Millsap led the Hawks with 21 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals. Jeff Teague added 20 points to go along with five assists. DeMarre Carroll and Mike Scott finished with 15 points each.

Mike Conley led six different Memphis players in double figures with 21 points and 13 assists. Zach Randolph logged a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds while Courtney Lee and Mike Miller added 15 points each.

Atlanta flies to London Monday night in advance of their matchup with the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday.
