Clint Capela is not shy about making his belief in his team known. The Houston Rockets center doubled down on a prior Jan. 20 post-game claim that he believes his team is better after taking down the Golden State Warriors a second time, winning the season series 2-1.

Asked if that belief has remained intact, the young, brash center remained unequivocal on his previous thoughts.

“I believe we have a team capable of winning a championship,” said Capela, according to ESPN’s Stefano Fusaro. “So if I think that we can win a championship, then yes I think we are better.”

Warriors forward Draymond Green recalled Capela’s prior comments after eliminating the New Orleans Pelicans 4-1 last week, noting the game will have to be played and that those words will have to be backed up by the Swiss international.

The Rockets will enter the series with something no other team has had in the last three years against the Warriors — home court advantage. That alone should play a massive part in this series, allowing the team’s role players (who historically perform better at home) to thrive in a matchup where outside contributions have proved the X-factor.

Capela has been brilliant in the postseason, a key cog as the Rockets’ third scoring option, and one that will gobble up rebounds at either end of the glass, giving his small-ball team a blanket of confidence on that front.
