The Memphis Grizzlies blasted the Atlanta Hawks in front of 17,000+ at FedExForum on Friday night (10/19). It was a coming out party for Jeron Jackson Jr., forced into extra action as JaMychal Green went out after busting his mouth, jaw, and teeth. 

Jackson finished with 24 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists. He certainly looks the part and will be important to the Grizzlies win/lose total in 2018-19. But Friday night was also about new pieces like Garrett Temple showing out for 30 points, Kyle Anderson (+10, 19 mins with 3/4/4), and Omri Casspi (24 mins/11 points/4 rebounds). Marc Gasol (+31) and Mike Conley (+26) were solid with 13 points and 16 points respectively.  It was "just what the doctor ordered" after a lackluster opener in Indiana earlier in the week.

The Chandler Parsons transformation tour also continued in full swing Friday night at FedExForum.
