Clint Capela hit 7-of-11 from the floor to finish Monday’s road win with 19 points, adding nine rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes.
Capela is going to enjoy life this season and could be a huge boost for your field goal percentage. The lack of blocks was disappointing, but more troubling was the fact that he shot 5-of-9 from the charity stripe. He’s a brutal free throw shooter but might take them at a good clip for the first time in his young career, so tread carefully. Capela might better as a punt option, but we’re not expecting him to take nine per night when the real games begin. He’s one of our favorite centers to take in the middle-rounds due to his field goal percentage, rebounds and blocks potential.
