Clint Capela scored 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting and added four rebounds, a steal and a block in only 18 minutes of action in Tuesday’s win over the Warriors.
Capela saw his playing time heavily restricted last year by coach Mike D’Antoni in favor of veteran big men. He was still able to turn in mid-round value in 24 minutes per game last year, but we hope to see the reigns come off Capela a bit more this year. He was one of the few big men on the Rockets that didn’t draw a DNP, so this was likely a game specific scheme, but keep an eye on his minutes going forward.
