The Rockets big 3 (Harden, Paul, and Capela) are now 24-1 this season when they are all in the lineup together.

 

When Durant, Curry, Green, and Thompson are all together in the lineup for Golden State they are only 22-9.

You keep going at this omg. Such a fucking hypocrite.

 

Funny how you defended CLE when I vlasted them early for their play.

 

Now, the best and most accompkished tram in the NBA the past 3 or 4 years you act like that record is very telling? Please.

 

And they still hold first place....

The Warriors are barely in first place, only because they've played two more games. And the Rockets still hold the tie-breaker.

 

Houston has won 95% of their games with Harden, CP3, and Capela in the lineup. The only loss was by 2 points. Where is the hypocrisy here?

This is like the pot calling the kettle black.  

Dude, I don't regurgitate the same shit over and over and over.

 

Unless it's me responding to the shit that OF constantly duplicates.

 

At least I come with different stats, facts, articles to defend my position.

 

Not continually stating a record that shows my team is completely incompetent anytime ONE, just one, player is not playing. And still think we will beat the best team (by far) in the NBA.

How does a 1/2 game lead make them the best team by far in the NBA? And how are the Rockets completely incompetent missing just one player?

 

Harden is the front-runner for the MVP, and when he missed 7 games they went 4-3 without him. Is that completely incompetent?

 

Their other future HOFer, Chris Paul, has missed 18 games and they went 11-7 without him. That sounds really incompetent, right?

 

Take Trevor Ariza out of the starting lineup and you'd think that would hurt them, but they're 11-0 without him. Completely incompetent.

 

Ryan Anderson missed two games, they went 2-0. And they went 10-7 without Luc Mbah a Moute in the lineup, even though you insist he sucks.

 

They even went 4-1 without reigning 6th man Eric Gordon. The player they missed the most was Clint Capela, they were 1-4 without him.

 

But you seem to think that he's not even close to Nikola Jokic, a true sign of ignorance. Capela totally bitch-slapped him the other night. :cool:

Of the 13 losses suffered by the Rockets so far this season, only 4 of them were when they were missing just one player (and just 1 loss at 100%).

 

Two of their losses occurred with Paul, Capela, and Mbah a Moute out of the lineup.

 

Another two were with Capela and Mbah a Moute out of the lineup. And another two were with Harden and Mbah a Moute out of the lineup.

 

One came with Paul and Gordon out of the lineup, and the last one came with Paul and Mbah a Moute out of the lineup. No complete incompetence.

3 straight Finals appearances and 2 wins tell me that. Not a half fucking game lead in February.

 

The rest of this post is irrelevant.

 

Especially the part about Jokic and Capela. All you do is look at one game, look at a half game lead in the standings and want to dismiss everything else.

 

How about the rest of the year? Why are Jokics numbers better across the board? And doesnt have 2 HOFers setting him up for dunk after dunk. And has one less year of experience compared to Capela. And is still better.

 

Get a fucking clue.

Are they? Jokic averages 16.7 PPG in 31.4 MPG while Capela averages 14.4 PPG in 27.2 MPG, and guess what? In points per 48 minutes they are currently tied at 25.5, so their scoring is basically dead even. Except Capela shoots 65.4% (#1 in the NBA) and Jokic shoots just 47.8% although the reason for that is all the threes he shoots at a respectable 35.2% so yes Jokic is a vastly superior 3-point shooter compared to Capela.

 

Rebounding is important for centers, right? Capela averages 11.1 RPG while Jokic averages 10.5 RPG, but if you look at rebounds per 48 minutes it's not so close (19.6 for Capela, which is the 3rd highest in the NBA after Drummond and Jordan, while Jokic is at 16.1 which is 15th in the NBA).

 

Another big stat for centers is blocks, yes? Capela has 1.85 BPG and Jokic has just .74 BPG (per 48 minutes Capela is among the best at 3.26 while Jokic is just 1.13, not so great). The assists and steals definitely favor Jokic with 5.7 APG and 1.16 SPG compared to 1.0 APG and .65 SPG for Capela.

 

Capela has fewer turnovers per game (1.5 versus 2.6) and a higher player efficiency rating (25.4 versus 23.2), but Jokic is a much better FT shooter.

 

So Jokic is clearly ahead in 3-point shooting, FT shooting, assists, and steals but pretty much everything else belongs to Capela. How about Defensive Real +/-, another important stat for a center. Capela is #10 in the NBA and Jokic is only #53, although Jokic has a much better Offensive Real +/-.
