Kevin Durant takes shot at Clint Capela for saying Rockets better than Warriors
After the Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors 116-108 on Saturday to snatch the season series and earn a potential playoff seeding tiebreaker, Rockets center Clint Capela proclaimed to ESPN that we are better than them.
Warriors forward Kevin Durant took exception when asked about Capela’s comments following Monday’s practice.
Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said earlier in the season that his main objective is to take down the defending champion Warriors. Houston even went after Warriors reserve free agent Andre Iguodala last summer.
We can beat anyone, as well, but we can be beat. We can be beat on any night if we don’t come to play, if we turn it over 20 times, if we don’t guard the 3-point line well, we can be beat. But we don’t want to give those kinds of teams that type of confidence, but we let it happen. We got to move on, and if we see this team, I’m sure it’ll be a fun one.
As of Tuesday, more than 100 fans combined to contribute nearly $5,000 to the passer’s foundation, which helps children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and first responders in both Jacksonville and Oviedo [Fla.] communities.
Cincinnati loyalists began donating after local sports radio host Mo Egger suggested they follow the lead of Bills fans, who donated more than $300,000 to the foundation of Bengals signal-caller Andy Dalton, whose winning touchdown pass against Baltimore in Week 17 propelled Buffalo into the postseason.
Fans are at the core of the football experience and it’s truly exciting and rewarding when they band together, regardless of the team they cheer for, to make a positive impact in the lives of others, Bortles said in a statement. I greatly appreciate the support displayed by Bengals fans and they should know their support will make a difference.
