Clint Capela and the Hawks picked up their sixth straight NBA success on Wednesday.
Atlanta won 124-106 at San Antonio, rising above the 50% game-winning mark for the first time since November 1.
The Hawks, who had chained six defeats in a row before starting this winning streak, now have a record of 10 wins for 9 losses in this 2021/22 exercise. “We just knew how to play fast basketball while having fun,” said Trae Young at the end of this game.
Author of 31 points, 11 assists and 7 rebounds for a differential of +30, the leader of Atlanta was the man of the match. But Clint Capela was not left out, especially on the defensive level: the Geneva interior managed 11 points, 13 rebounds, 5 interceptions and 3 blocks on the floor of Spurs.
Atlanta, which celebrated its second win of the season away from its bases in ten games on Wednesday, forced the decision at the start of the third quarter. The Hawks – including no less than eight players scored at least 10 points – signed a partial 12-5 after the locker room to take 14 lengths ahead (77-63).
