Rockets' Clint Capela: Scores career-high 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting
Capela finished with a career-high 21 points (9-12 FG, 3-4 FT) to go with nine rebounds and two blocks across 33 minutes in Sunday's 130-114 win over the Trail Blazers.
After a slow start to the season, Capela has slid in seamlessly as the Rockets' starting center, hitting double figures in the scoring column in 11 of his last 12 games while averaging 14.3 points (on 64.2% shooting), 9.2 rebounds and 2.3 blocks across 27.7 minutes per contest. The defensive excellence wasn't unexpected for Capela, but the consistency he's shown as a scorer has helped elevate his fantasy stock more than anticipated. At 22 years old, Capela still may have another level he can reach.
