Clint Capela scored 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting with 12 rebounds and three blocks against the Wolves on Sunday.
Capela was relied on heavily to anchor Houston’s defense as the Wolves mounted a comeback effort in the fourth quarter and he tallied five fouls trying to keep up with Karl-Anthony Towns. There was a point in the game where he was visibly bothered after hitting his thumb on a play, but Capela remained in throughout the rest of the game. He got his third block by quickly turning around to swat Taj Gibson’s second chance effort after forcing a Towns miss so we’re expecting him to be just fine for the next game.
