Clint Capela is sort of the anti-Dwight Howard. He has no problem with an offensive role that consists primarily of running the floor, setting screens, rolling hard to the rim and rebounding. He understands the value of the vertical spacing he provides. And you’ll certainly never hear Capela complain about a lack of post touches. “Nah, that’s not his personality,” says Rockets assistant coach Roy Rogers, who works with Houston’s big men. “Clint’s a team-first guy. He understands his role on the team, and he accepts his role. He’s excited about his role.”

Coach Mike D’Antoni revealed a poorly kept secret after the Houston Rockets’ series-tying, come-from-behind 95-92 win over the Golden State Warriors in Tuesday’s Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. Chris Paul has been battling soreness in his right foot during the series. “Chris felt better. His foot felt better,” D’Antoni said. “I called him after Game 3, and he said, ‘Coach, I’m telling you, if I can get my foot right, we’ll beat these guys.’ Lo and behold, he got his foot right. And just like I said, we’re back to even.”

“I think their owner would trade management/the coach before he would trade Karl-Anthony Towns,” Wojnarowski said. “I don’t think they would allow that. I just don’t believe they’d allow that kind of decision. And I don’t know that they’d want to trade him. To answer this first, Minnesota’s bigger issue is not…he’s Karl-Anthony Towns, they’re not moving him, Towns is eligible for his extension this summer. You know Jimmy Butler…it’s more of a question of Andrew Wiggins. That to me would be, if someone was going to get moved — and I’m not saying anyone’s going to get moved — I think Andrew Wiggins is the one you’re going to look at first. Because…you don’t have to make a decision on Towns and Jimmy Butler and one of those guys having to take less on an extension, because you can’t have three [max] guys.”

Storyline: Karl-Anthony Towns Trade?
Curry scored a team-high 28 points albeit on 10-of-26 shooting, missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer with .5 seconds left and shot only 1-of-8 in the fourth quarter. The Warriors would not have been in such a position to win, however, without Curry’s third-quarter play. Then, Curry scored 17 points, while shooting 6-of-10 from the field and 5-of-8 from 3-point range. “I could sit here and nitpick all you want,” Curry said. “I had some decent looks that didn’t go down, but that’s not why we lost.”
