The Houston Rockets struggled early in their Game 5 outing against the Utah Jazz Wednesday night.
But once the action hit the second half, Houston opened up a double-digit lead. That was aided by this absolutely brutal dunk Clint Capela threw down after pretty much humiliating reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert.
Houston might have two future Hall of Famers in the backcourt, but this is the most-impressive play we’ve seen from the team in the series.
Not many players can make Gobert look that bad on defense. For his part, Capela opened up the game with 14 points and seven boards on 5-of-5 shooting.
A win here, and Houston will advance to likely take on the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Semifinals.
