Atlanta Hawks Team Report – December 11
=== Atlanta Hawks Team Report – December 11 ===
(Sports Network) – The Atlanta Hawks were denied their first winning streak of
the season on Wednesday, as they were dealt a 103-90 setback at the hands of
the Memphis Grizzlies.
Jason Terry scored 19 points and handed out five assists and Shareef Abdur-
Rahim finished with 12 points and a game-high 15 rebounds, as the Hawks fell
for the fifth time in six games.
Stephen Jackson returned to the Hawks lineup after a one-game suspension for
conduct detrimental to the team and ended with 14 points off the bench.
However, rookie guard Boris Diaw left the contest late in the fourth quarter
with an ankle sprain. With the Hawks down 12, Abdur-Rahim fed Diaw under the
basket but Diaw missed a layup, then came down awkwardly on his left ankle.
Diaw grabbed it and rolled over, grimacing, before he left the game.
He will be re-evaluated today in Indianapolis, where the Hawks will meet the
Pacers on Friday.
Atlanta fell to 3-10 away from home this season.
