Capela finished with 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-8 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 115-109 loss to Golden State.
Capela had a string game Tuesday, ending with 14 points and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes. The matchup with the Warriors certainly doesn't do Capela any favors and the fact they are running a lot of small ball negates much of Capela's impact. Both teams will get a few nights off before heading to Houston for Game 3 Saturday. James Harden could take the court with some limitations after suffering an eye injury in Game 2, and if that is the case, Capela could be called upon to do a bit more on the offensive end.
Capela produced 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks, and two assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 100-93 Game 5 win over the Jazz.
Capela looked like himself again after suffering through an illness for the first four playoff games. He did manage three double-doubles during this first round series, but this was by far his most well-rounded performance of the postseason.
Capela is feeling better after suffering through an illness for the first four games of the first-round series against the Jazz, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Coach Mike D'Antoni articulated that Capela was feeling much better and wouldn't be limited in Game 5 during a press conference Wednesday. Although Capela's appeared in each game in the first-round series so far, his production has lagged as he's struggled through two separate respiratory illnesses that have adversely affected his breathing. While he's not completely over the illnesses, Wednesday's news was a good sign for Capela going forward.
Capela revealed Monday that he has been battling two respiratory illnesses during the first-round series against the Jazz, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
Capela received this news Sunday from a doctor in Salt Lake City and was told it would be another four or five days before he was back to full strength. Capela was held to just four points and seven rebounds in the Game 4 loss and mentioned that he was very difficult to breathe. Regardless, it looks like Capela is going to play through it no matter what, but he may still be limited in what is now a crucial Game 5 for Houston.
Capela mustered seven points (3-4 FG, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 29 minutes during the Rockets' 118-98 win over the Jazz in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.
Capela was minimally involved on the offensive end after putting up 13 shot attempts in Game 1, but he helped make up for it with another double-digit rebounding effort and a trio of rejections. The 24-year-old big was a defensive force down low during the regular season as well, and although his offensive contributions may fluctuate from game to game, his work elsewhere on the stat sheet keeps him viable as the series shifts to Utah for Game 3 on Saturday night.
