"But I think the one thing we know is that this is really about James Harden, Chris Paul and our star-level players". He had a 50-point game and 47-point effort last month, and he's scored over 40 points per game in five straight contests. "He is the master of isolation and the step-back three and drawing fouls".

On Thursday's showdown against the Warriors, Capela had his third 20-point, 20-rebound outing of the season.

Houston was just 6 of 23 from long range, 3 for 9 by Harden, while the Warriors shot 62.8 per cent. "So I felt badly, honestly", Popovich said of the booing.
