Analysis:

Nike Hoop Summit Game Notes — 04/12/2014

  • Line: 5 points in 3 rebounds 13 minutes (4 quick fouls)
  • Early foul trouble really limited Capela for most of the game
  • He looked lethargic on the court playing with very little energy and effort for the first three quarters
  • Even before the foul trouble he did not look like the bouncy athlete that he can be
  • Late in the game when his team was in desperation mode Capela scored off an offensive rebound and drew a foul using his athleticism
  • He did not have a great game on either end fouling often and not securing rebounds to end possessions
  • Overall this week in practice and in the game Capela did not have his best week of basketball. He did not have the energy or effort in practice as well as the game playing in front of 30 of his potential future bosses. Capela is a great athlete, but has very raw hands and feet, needs those to catch up with his leaping ability and explosion.
