ATLANTA (AP) -- Jeff Teague had 22 points and a season-high 13 assists, Josh Smith added 19 points and 11 rebounds and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Memphis Grizzlies 103-92 on Wednesday night.

Al Horford finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds to help the Hawks snap a two-game skid.

Zach Randolph scored 20 points and Mike Conley added 17 as the Grizzlies lost their second straight.

Atlanta played without No. 2 center Zaza Pachulia, veteran guard DeShawn Stevenson and swingman Anthony Morrow, but still held the Grizzlies to 26.3 percent shooting in the third quarter.

Memphis missed its first 13 shots from the field in the third before Randolph hit a 22-footer at the 6:26 mark, but the Grizzlies trailed by 19 and never recovered.
