De’Andre Hunter tried to reel the team back with a three of his own in the third quarter.
By the fourth quarter, the Hawks were down 102-76, and the rest of the game was a breeze for the Grizzlies.
Hunter finished with 19 points, Johnson finished with 14 points and nine rebounds, and Griffin finished with 13 points.
