The Atlanta Hawks were out for revenge after losing Game 2 against the New York Knicks as the series moved down south to Georgia. In the 4th quarter, with the game on the line, Clint Capela had an epic rejection on Julius Randle and busted out a Dikembe Mutombo-like celebration.

The Hawks would go on to win the game and take a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 also in Atlanta. Capela’s block and celebration got the Hawks fans bumping as they could taste the sweet victory of Game 3.
Trae Young was fantastic as always, dropping 21 points with 14 dimes and Capela added 13 points and 12 rebounds with a pair of blocks.
As for the Knicks, Derrick Rose led all scorers with 30 points in his first playoff start in over five years, but it wasn’t enough. The Hawks, who have been a revelation since the firing of Lloyd Pierce, are suddenly in the driver’s seat and could potentially head back to New York with a 3-1 lead.
Capela and Young definitely know how to pump up the fans, and Game 4 should be just as wild as the fans flock back in to watch their young, exciting team.
Can the Hawks keep the momentum up and take a 3-1 series advantage?
