Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies prediction

I'm not excited to get behind either the Hawks or Grizzlies, as they're both teams that are having poor years. The Hawks have been one of the biggest letdowns and are still without Trae Young. The Memphis Grizzlies have an injury report longer than the day is long. However, somebody has to win and cover, and the Hawks are the healthier of the two teams. If the Hawks are going to tread water and remain in the playoff / play-in race, these are games they need to win. No excuses for the Hawks. I'll lay the bucket, but there are better games to bet on Friday's NBA card.
