Temple, Jackson Jr. lead Grizzlies past Hawks 131-117

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The Memphis Grizzlies' newcomers made a fine first impression on the home crowd.

Garrett Temple, picked up in a trade from Sacramento, scored 30 points, rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. added 24 as the Grizzlies built a first-half lead and coasted to a 131-117 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.

"The energy was more like a spectacle," Jackson said of pregame fireworks, dancers and the performance by Memphis rapper Young Dolph in the home opener. He later added: "It's a blur. I ain't gonna lie. I really can't (remember specifics)."
