Three Takeaways From Atlanta's 99-92 Win Over Memphis


As a result of their victory over the Grizzlies on Saturday, the Hawks have obtained their third consecutive victory.

Even though it wasn't the most pretty win or game, the Atlanta Hawks beat the Memphis Grizzlies last night by taking advantage of another team that was hurt a lot. 

In spite of the fact that the Hawks experienced their own set of injury issues, the predicament that Memphis is currently facing is in no way comparable to what they are going through. 

There is a possibility that the Hawks will be able to get Jalen Johnson back for their game against the New Orleans Pelicans tomorrow night, but we will have to wait and see if that happens. 

What were the most important things you learned from last night's game?Dejounte Murray played one of his best games ever.The Hawks would not have won last night's game without Dejounte Murray. 

Murray had one of his best games ever and since moving to Atlanta. He had a fantastic game with 41 points, seven boards, and six assists on 17-25 shooting. 

"First, they began to trap him, and then we played pick-and-roll with a small, and he ended up getting some switches that he particularly desired. 

Statistically speaking, it was a significant game, but it was also a game that required a lot of mental effort. "His buckets were big buckets."

As a result of Trae Young's continued absence, Murray has been required to shoulder a greater burden in terms of offensive output, and he has responded to this challenge.

 If Murray is able to maintain a level of play that is comparable to this, the Hawks will be able to make it through till Young returns. 

Even a decent Murray game costs Atlanta. They received three points from Saddiq Bey on 1-12 shooting, seven from Bruno Fernando and Garrison Matthews, and three from Vit Krejci, who replaced Jalen Johnson.

Some players are playing due to injury, but Fernando and Bey have produced before, especially Bey, who has been playing well. The schedule will get tougher next week, therefore these men must perform better.

Because of how this season has been going so far, no one should blame the Hawks for the wins they've been getting, especially since they have their own issues.
