Another stop for Clint Capela! Hit in the heel, the Genevan followed from the stands Atlanta’s 115-112 victory in Orlando.
Clint Capela was injured Tuesday during the game won in Miami in a fortuitous shock. The injury worsened over the hours to bar the NBA’s top rebounder from holding his place.
Without Clint Capela but with a Trae Young still as valuable with his 32 points, Atlanta managed to chain to pick up a second victory in two games under the rule of his new coach Nate McMillan. It was all the more meritorious as the Hawks were led by 19 points at the break (61-42).
The man of the evening was James Harden. The rear of Brooklyn has, in fact, pulled out all the stops for his comeback in Houston. Author of a triple double with his 29 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists, James Harden left no chance to his former team which conceded Wednesday night a thirteenth defeat in a row.
