Clint Capela: “We Are Better Than The Rockets”


This past Saturday, the Houston Rockets beat the Golden State Warriors with 116-108. With that win, Houston also won the series (2-1), meaning if both teams end the season with identical records, the Rockets would get the higher seed and home-court advantage should they meet in the postseason.

Rockets big man Clint Capela has emerged as one of the key player this season, and made a bold statement after the game. Capela said that the Rockets are better than the Warriors:


“We’re confident because we know if we’re doing what we’re supposed to do, we’re going to beat them,” Rockets center Clint Capela told ESPN. “We’ve got to keep playing. We know that they’re going to come back if we have the lead, and we’ve just got to keep that mindset. Sometimes I feel like, in the past, we were all dragging down after mistakes. But today, we were ready. I think that if we’re doing what we’re supposed to do on defense — all the switches, the weak side — and keep playing our offense by keeping that mentality all game long, we have the weapons to beat them.

We are better than them.”
