Clint Capela had a tough night in Dallas, where the Hawks were beaten for the third time in their last four NBA games (118-117).
The Geneva interior of Atlanta was content with 6 points and 7 rebounds against the Mavericks of Luka Doncic (28 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists).
This is simply the second time this season that Clint Capela has not hit 10 rebounds, after his first appearance on December 28 against Detroit (9 catches). The Meyrinois, who remained on a capital performance (23 points and 16 rebounds Saturday against Toronto), had even lined up 19 games in a row with 10 or more rebounds.
Aligned for only 21 minutes, Clint Capela was even the unfortunate hero of a meeting where he was limited by faults. The tide thus turned after an offensive offense by the Swiss international, who moreover no longer appeared on the floor after this fifth personal foul committed at 7’08 ” from the ‘buzzer’.
The Hawks, whose lead was then five points (101-96), conceded an 11-0 in stride to find themselves down 107-101. They were certainly able to pick up the score, but never regained the advantage, wasting their last two possession of the ball after coming back to 118-117 at 1’05 ” from the end on an award-winning basket from Trae Young (25 points, 15 assists, 7 rebounds).
