C-. Clint Capela didn’t have an absolutely terrible game, but he wasn’t stellar either. Capela finished with 8 points and 8 rebounds on 4-7 (57.1 percent) shooting, which is below average for a guy who’s shooting 68.1 percent from the field. Capela missed a couple of point-blank layups in the beginning of the game, and he missed his only two free-throws. Capela finished with 3 fouls and 2 turnovers in just 16 minutes of play, and he never really found a rhythm. Nikola Jokic was simply too big for Capela down low, so Mike D’Antoni gave most of the center’s minutes to Nene. Clint also had a plus/minus of +2, which was the lowest of the starters by 24 points.. Center. Houston Rockets. CLINT CAPELA

D-. Bobby Brown, who only played in garbage time, had a rough game. The 6’2″ guard missed all five of his shots and finished with 0 rebounds and just 1 assist in 8 minutes. Brown also had a plus/minus of -17, which really sticks out in a game that Houston won by 30 points. Luckily, the conclusion of the game was no longer in question.. Point Guard. Houston Rockets. BOBBY BROWN
