Inside the box score: Hawks 107, Grizzlies 90


Inside the box score and more of the Hawks’ 107-90 victory over the Grizzlies Saturday night:

Key players

* Taurean Prince led the Hawks with 17 points, his career-high by six points.

* Paul Millsap had 16 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block.

* Jose Calderon finished with 14 points, including two 3-pointers.

Key stat

The Grizzlies were 5 of 29 from 3-point range as Mike Conley and Troy Daniels were each 1 of 7. The Hawks were 15 of 30 from long range.

Noteworthy

* The Hawks ended the first quarter on 14-1 run and led 33-15 in a game they never trailed.

* Ersan Ilyasova drew his NBA-leading 32nd charge.

* Tim Hardaway Jr. extended his streak to 18 straight games with a 3-pointer.

* Taurean Prince’s previous career-high was 11 points. He had 12 points midway through the second quarter.

* The Grizzlies made just one of their first 11 shots.

* Official James Williams apologized to Dwight Howard, who did not play for rest. It was Williams who assessed a second technical foul on Howard for hanging on the rim but incorrectly ejected him from a game against the Celtics last month.

Quotable

“This is what I practice for. This is what I train for. I work my butt off all the time to be able to have opportunities like this to do whatever is asked of me. It’s a dream come true every day I live it.” – Taurean Prince
