Capela finished with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 22 minutes during Houston's 126-85 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of their Western Conference Finals playoff series Sunday.
Capela was actually a bright spot on an otherwise mostly disastrous night for the Rockets, despite the fact he played the fewest minutes among the starting five. The surging center bounced back from a five-point effort in Game 2 to tally his best scoring total since Game 2 of the semifinal round against the Jazz, while also keeping his contributions on the boards strong. He'll look to repeat the feat when Houston tries to even the series in Tuesday's pivotal Game 4.
Capela offered five points (2-3 FG, 1-5 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during Houston's 127-105 win over the Warriors in Game 2 of their Western Conference Finals playoff series.
Capela's scoring contributions weren't necessary on a night when the quartet of James Harden, Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza combined for 95 points, and Chris Paul added another 16. His teammates' stellar offensive efforts helped lead to Capela putting up his second-lowest number of shot attempts this postseason, but he was able to generate his first double-digit rebound tally since Game 4 of the semifinal round against the Jazz. The four-year veteran's well-rounded game allows him to contribute on both ends of the floor as needed, and he'll undoubtedly play an important role again in some form during Sunday's Game 3.
Capela finished with 12 points (6-7 FG), six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 29 minutes during Monday's 119-106 loss to the Warriors.
Capela was able to put up a nice line but was far less impactful than he has been in the previous two series. The Warriors are going to go with a lot of small ball lineups in an attempt to take Capela out of the game and it worked here with the Warriors recording a reasonably comfortable victory. He will need to find other ways to get involved on Wednesday if the Rockets hope to come away with a victory.
Capela totaled just five points (1-2 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, five blocks and three steals in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 112-102 victory over the Jazz.
Capela was kept very quiet on the offensive end of the floor but was still able to contribute with a combined eight defensive stats. He has been a pillar of consistency across the playoffs and this was merely a blip on the radar. The Rockets have now advanced to face the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals and Capela's role is going to likely change based on the matchup. The Warriors play a lot of small ball and will look to nullify some of the impact Capela provides. He should still figure to see at least 30 minutes but his production could fluctuate from game to game.
Capela had 12 points (6-11 FG), 15 rebounds, six blocks, two assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Sunday's 100-87 victory over the Jazz.
Capela was at it again Sunday, basically taking Rudy Gobert out of the game as the Rockets moved to within one win of the Western Conference Finals. His development this season has been nothing short of spectacular and despite his limited offensive range, he fills his role to perfection while providing elite rim protection on the defensive end. He will look to round off a strong series on Tuesday when they travel back to Houston to try and finish off the Jazz.
