The Memphis Grizzlies take on the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday in a matchup of young, superstar point guards.

Ja Morant is listed as questionable following an apparent injury scare involving his lower back in Tuesday’s win over the Miami Heat. Assuming Morant is suiting up, this game figures to be an entertaining one, with both teams playing solid ball as of late.

Memphis and Atlanta have both won four of their last five games, with the Grizzlies coming in on a three-game winning streak and Atlanta in the midst of a four-game winning tear.

Trae Young went for 30 points and 12 assists in Tuesday’s 16-point win over the New Orleans Pelicans. He also scored 36 points in the first matchup, way back on Dec. 26, against the Grizzlies.

Over the last five games, both have ranked in the league’s top 10 when it comes to Net Rating, with the defenses in the top 15 and offenses that are averaging well over 117 points per 100 possessions per NBA Advanced Stats.

If Morant isn’t 100 percent, Memphis will need an even bigger scoring effort from Dillon Brooks and big man Jonas Valanciunas, who combined for 48 points in the road victory over the Heat.

Our latest PRO Report shows that sharp bettors are expecting the Hawks’ recent defensive improvement to hold up. Let’s take a look.
