Hawks center Clint Capela: Knicks try to be physical, but aren’t really
Clint Capela was brash while playing for the Rockets against the dominant Warriors.
Now on the Hawks – who are up 3-1 in their first-round series against the Knicks – Capela darned sure isn’t becoming less outspoken.
The Knicks have overachieved this season through their effort, defense and, yes, toughness.
They just aren’t tough enough to overcome their talent deficit in this series. It’s hard to look tough while getting schooled by Trae Young and multiple skilled role players.
And now Capela is mocking New York for coming up short, which can’t feel good entering Game 5 tomorrow.
