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.
“Are they physical? They try to play physical. I feel like if they were really physical we’d have more problems than we have,” Capela said. “I feel like they’re trying to, but it’s not working.”
“We talked s–t and pushed you around, so what are you going to do about it? So that’s what happened. We can do it, too. We can be physical, but we can win games as well,” Capela said. “Now we’re coming to your home to win this game again, to send you on vacation.”
The Knicks have overachieved this season through their effort, defense and, yes, toughness.
And now Capela is mocking New York for coming up short, which can’t feel good entering Game 5 tomorrow.
