Welcome back, Clint Capela.
James Harden made sure to get him involved in the offense early.
Harden, Capela connect on no-look pass, dunk
With the Rockets trailing 12-10 about halfway through the first quarter, Harden and Capela worked the pick-and-roll to perfection with a no-look bounce pass in traffic from Harden that led to a two-handed Capela slam through traffic that included LeBron James and JaVale McGee.
Rockets come out of break healthy
It was Capela’s second dunk of the game as previously injury-laden Rockets return from the All-Star break with a lineup that also includes a healthy Chris Paul and Eric Gordon.
The return of Capela and his teammates may present a threat to Harden’s streak of 30-point games. But it should also lead to a dangerous Rockets squad.
