Clint Capela absolutely crushed the visiting Jazz in Monday’s 120-99 win, posting a monstrous 24-point, 20-rebound double-double while shooting 10-of-12 from the field, even adding three assists and two blocks for good measure.
Capela also shot 4-of-5 from the charity stripe in what might be the best game of his impressive season. He has most certainly asserted himself as a dynamic presence in the middle and life is both good and easy with his two elite guards throwing him plenty of lobs. Capela’s breakout season is very real and he should be able to finish inside the top-50 this season as a huge producer in terms of rebounds, blocks and field goal percentage. Congratulations are in order if you were able to pick him up on the cheap in your drafts.
