Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies Prediction & Match Preview – October 9th, 2021 | NBA Preseason 2021-22
After playing two preseason games each in the 2021-22 NBA season, the Atlanta Hawks will face the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedExForum in Memphis on Saturday.
While the Hawks will likely play without their main offensive duo of Trae Young and Bogdan Bogdanovic, the Grizzlies will have a fit Ja Morant.
Fixture – Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies | NBA Preseason 2021-22.
Date & Time – Saturday, October 9th; 8:00 PM ET (Sunday, October 10th; 5:30 AM).
Venue – FedExForum, Memphis, TN.
Atlanta Hawks preview
The Atlanta Hawks have lost two consecutive games, the first against the Miami Heat and the second against the Cleveland Cavaliers. While Trae Young was present at the Hawks’ debut game, the lone All-Star was out with a strained quadriceps. Most likely, he will also miss Saturday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
With clouds of uncertainty over Camp Atlanta, the team can play its next game without Bogdan, Hurter, Young and Clint Capela. The Atlanta Hawks have already suffered two losses this preseason and will need a miraculous performance with the players left to win the next game.
Memphis Grizzlies preview
The Memphis Grizzlies are heating up. So far they have won both of their preseason matchups, killing the defending champions Milwaukee Bucks and then the Charlotte Hornets. Steven Adams has been a crucial player in the success of his team, racking up 16 rebounds in the game against the LaMelo Ball-led Hornets.
If Desmond Bane, Adams, and De’Anthony Milton can keep up their supporting act on Saturday, it will be tough to beat the Memphis Grizzlies on their home court.
Hawks vs Grizzlies match prediction
The 2020-21 Eastern Conference finalists have suffered greatly in their last two games. With Kevin Huerter, Bogdanovic, and Young in doubt for the next game, the Atlanta Hawks could lose to the Grizzlies on Saturday.
With the Grizzlies red hot, with their top offensive and defensive players healthy, the Hawks may find it extremely difficult to win this preseason game on Saturday.
