Atlanta Hawks Vs. Memphis Grizzlies: Hawks 47, Grizzlies 37; Atlanta Running In Memphis

There's no stopping the Atlanta Hawks bench so far tonight.  They can't miss either.  The second unit comes in and steps on the gas against the Memphis Grizzlies.  Maurice Evans has seven, Jamal Crawford has five as the Hawks bench has outscored their Memphis counterparts, 23-4.

Zaza Pachulia is doing it all for the Hawks, scoring seven, grabbing a team-best six rebounds and finding Joe Johnson low in the post for an easy layup.  Yes folks, this Atlanta bench is as deep as it was last year and this team has been able to shred Memphis' half-court defense with their motion offense.

Atlanta held Memphis without a field goal for almost five minutes bridging the first and the second en route to building the double-digit lead.  Darrell Arthur is making the best of his starting opportunity, posting a team-best 15 points on 6-for-7 shooting for the Grizzlies, but they appear to be outgunned by a superior Hawks team.
