Hawks: Clint Capela has a clear message for the Knicks

After back-to-back blowout wins over the Knicks at home, the Hawks have a commanding 3-1 lead in the series as they prepare to return to what is bound to be another raucous crowd at MSG for Game 5. It’s become obvious over the first four games in this series who the superior team is, but elimination games are always the most difficult. The Knicks have nothing to lose, and they are sure to play their most physical game yet.

However, that doesn’t seem to bother Hawks center Clint Capela. He acknowledged how New York has attempted to bully them so far in this series, but it hasn’t worked, and he doesn’t think that will change in Game 5.

Capela didn’t mince words regarding Julius Randle‘s bush-league foul at the end of Game 4, either.

Frankly, the Knicks have been outclassed, and they are acting like a team that’s never been there before. Frustration is boiling over from all of their young players, and their one veteran — Derrick Rose — who has been in these situations many times does not seem impressed by their antics.


Clint Capela had one final message for the Knicks in his press conference — enjoy your vacation.

Of all the Hawks, Clint Capela is one of the few with plenty of playoff experience. He knows what it’s all about from his days with the Rockets, and he seems to have a sense that this Knicks team is broken. The Hawks have all the momentum, and they don’t plan on stepping on the brakes. We will see tomorrow if they can take care of business, earning them some extra rest before their second-round series.
