This day in Rockets history: Clint Capela outshines Anthony Davis

When the Houston Rockets squared off against the New Orleans Pelicans on March 24th, 2018, the matchup everyone overlooked was Clint Capela vs. Anthony Davis. Davis was going to be defended by Capela, and AD is obviously one of the best in the league, which is why most people around the league ignored the matchup.

The game had the look of a potential playoff series, as the Pelicans had a record of 43-31, while the Rockets boasted the league’s best record, as they were 59-14. The Capela/Davis matchup was a tale of the tape, and it almost had the look of David and Goliath.
