2022 NBA Play-In: Hawks eliminate Cavaliers to become No. 8 seed, meet Heat in first round

The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-101 in Friday night’s play-in tournament to finish the No. 8 seed. Atlanta meets the Heat in the first round of the playoffs.

Hawks center Clint Capela went out late in the second quarter with a right knee hyperextension and was ruled out. The incident came late when Cavaliers forward Evan Mobley fell into Capela’s knee while being planted after Capela grabbed Mobley from behind as he shot in the paint. Officers reviewed the call to determine if it was a blatant foul and ruled that it was a common foul.

Coaches came out to look at Capela’s knees and helped him into the locker room. He left the game with seven points and eight rebounds.
