MEM vs. ATL Dream 11 Team Prediction, NBA Preseason: MEM vs ATL Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Memphis Grizzlies are going through a rebuilding phase, this season for them is about tapping out young talent and build a long-term platform under the leadership of athletic and exciting Ja Morant, who led the team in scoring last year with 17.3 PPG. On the other hand, Atlanta Hawks are also going through the same rebuilding process but have a very exciting pairing of the deep shooting Trae Young, a promising Jaren Jackson, who had a breakout 2019-20 season. Memphis comes into this preseason game with a 2-0 record and the Hawks enter with a 1-1 record, but preseason Wins and Losses really don’t hold much meaning. This game will be about setting up rosters for the Regular Season and identifying what combinations work under which circumstances. Although both teams may end up struggling this season, any game with the likes of Ja Morant and Trae Young can be an exciting one.

He is a total package indeed.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Atlanta Hawks Match Prediction
While Grizzlies have won their first two encounters and look like a better-rounded roster than the Hawks, Preseason games tend to focus more on bringing out combinations that will be useful during the Regular Season. Both of the coaches will like to distribute minutes here so they can learn which bench players can contribute during the Regular Season. This skirmish will be more about shaping up the roster, loosening up the players, and prepare for the real battle that commences once the Regular Season begins. The game can swing both ways and there is not much to look into it that way.
