Clint Capela started his Atlanta adventure in the best possible way: a 128-120 win over Detroit that gave the Hawks their best start to the season in four years.
Starting in the 5 base, Clint Capela enjoyed a playing time of 20 minutes. Injured to the Achilles tendon at the start of the season, the Genevan scored 7 points, caught 9 rebounds and managed 2 blocks for a differential of – 10. It will be recalled that Clint Capela had not played an NBA game since January 30. It was then under the jersey of the Houston Rockets.
Victorious in their first 3 matches, Atlanta will pass a revealing test this Wednesday in Brooklyn against the Kevin Durant Nets. With an inspired Trae Young – the rear scored 29 points against Detroit – and a remarkable address behind the three-point line – 47.6% for a 20 of 42 Monday night – Atlanta can approach this meeting with some certainty.
