Basketball: The Capela Hawks stop the Kings

For two weeks, Atlanta has found a certain regularity in its results in the NBA: the Hawks win one game out of two. Beaten Monday by Cleveland, the Georgian franchise recovered Wednesday at the Sacramento Kings (115-106), thus ending the beautiful Californian series (seven wins in a row).

Carried by a radiant Trae Young (35 points in 35 minutes at 11/19 shooting), Atlanta made the difference in the first half to return to the locker room with a fifteen-point lead. Very prominent lately, Clint Capela has been instrumental in the success of his team, with 11 points and 14 rebounds in 28 minutes.

In the standings, the Hawks are 4th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 11 wins and 7 losses, two successes ahead of the New York Knicks (7th). Winners of the Dallas Mavericks (125-112) by Luka Doncic (42 points), Boston and Jayson Tatum (37 points) retain the lead and the best record in the league (14-4).
