Hawks' Clint Capela: Scores 14 with 11 boards

Capela mustered 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-6 FT), 11 rebounds and an assist across 38 minutes in Friday's loss to the 76ers. Capela has three double-doubles in the series, but he has yet to score more than 14 points in a single game and has grabbed single-digit rebounds twice as well, as he's had all sorts of problems dealing with Joel Embiid on both ends of the court. It's hard to rely on the big man at this point even if he's shooting 54.9 percent from the field while averaging a double-double (10.2 points, 11.0 rebounds) during the series.

Clint Capela, yes Clint Capela, must save the Hawks’ season

The Atlanta Hawks need a savior to help them overcome a 2-1 deficit against the Philadelphia 76ers. That savior is not Trae Young. It is Clint Capela. Here’s the thing about this series. Young is always going to hold the keys to the Hawks’ success on the offensive end of the floor. Atlanta relies on him for the majority of its playmaking and is also somewhat dependent on his perimeter efficiency. Yet, those are the things you come to expect from a franchise player.
