The Atlanta Hawks have been one of the worst offensive teams in the preseason when it comes to their field goal percentage. The Memphis Grizzlies have been clicking on all cylinders, have yet to lose a game and just beat the Hawks by 22 points. I'm not trying to step in front of these young Grizzlies who seem to be regular season ready out the gate. I'll lay the bucket.
