Atlanta wins on the wire at the Pacers

Atlanta reacted perfectly after its loss to the Knicks last Saturday, which ended the Hawks’ seven-game winning streak.

Clint Capela and his teammates went to win 114-111 on the floor of the Indiana Pacers Wednesday in the NBA.

The Georgian franchise suffered until the end before plucking its third straight away win, the fourth in eight games played away from home this season. The ball lost by Trae Young 9”1 behind the buzzer, 112-111, could have been expensive.

The Pacers were victims of a bad decision by the referees in the last moments, believes their coach Rick Carlisle. According to the latter, a foul should have been called against the Hawk Kevin Huerter on the ‘layup’ of Chris Duarte at 5”6 from the end.

Duarte missed his attempt. Trae Young caught the rebound that followed, converting the two free throws he received at 1”2 from the end of the game after a foul committed by Domantas Sabonis to secure the victory for the Hawks.

The leader of Atlanta also shone on Wednesday, narrowly missing the triple double (33 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds). Clint Capela (8 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks) for his part was more discreet, also ending the game with the worst differential of his team (-15).
