The Hawks falling to the Warriors, the return of Ricky Rubio, and the end of the Grizzlies' losing streak highlight this weekend's NBA action.
The Atlanta Hawks struggled against the Golden State Warriors this weekend, losing 115-93 at home on Saturday. The Hawks had issues shooting the ball all night, in particular Josh Smith and Jeff Teague. The two combined to shoot 4-of-23 from the floor, and the team shot only 36.9 percent. They also struggled shooting the three ball, going only 5-of-26 from behind the line. John Jenkins and Louis Williams were both 1-6.
It was the final game of Golden State's seven game road trip, in which they went 6-1.
Elsewhere in the NBA, Ricky Rubio made his long-awaited comeback for the Minnesota Timberwolves, putting up eight points and nine assists in 18 minutes during their 114-106 overtime win over the Dallas Mavericks. Also, the Memphis Grizzlies snapped their three game losing streak by beating the Utah Jazz on the road, 99-86. Just a few days ago, Memphis had the best record in the NBA, but their brief funk has dropped them to fourth in the Western Conference.
