    Following Houston's 116-108 win over the Warriors on Saturday, Clint Capela spoke about the confidence he has in his team.

    "We're confident because we know if we're doing what we're supposed to do, we're going to beat them," Capela told ESPN. "We've got to keep playing. We know that they're going to come back if we have the lead, and we've just got to keep that mindset. Sometimes I feel like, in the past, we were all dragging down after mistakes. But today, we were ready. I think that if we're doing what we're supposed to do on defense -- all the switches, the weak side -- and keep playing our offense by keeping that mentality all game long, we have the weapons to beat them.

    "We are better than them."

    James Harden also said Houston's Saturday night win was important "for our swag."

    Celtics officially in a slump.

    Man it would be nice if our offence didn’t revolve around one guy. We’re basically a worse version of last year’s offence right now.

    The Celtics’ 104.2 offensive rating is ranked 20th in the league right now for the season.

    In January their offensive rating is 96.4

    Yep just awful. It was about time though that the lack of Hayward got exposed.

    We have no shot creator outside of Kyrie. If Tatum, Brown etc don’t knock down threes we’re screwed.

    Cleveland are 3.1 pp 100 possessions better when LeBron is off the court.

    Can you be an MVP with those numbers?

    Amazing what a good defence can accomplish.

    Boston give up 101.7 per 100. To put that in context OKC has the third best D and yet they give up 105.1... that means their defence is closer to the Knicks' level than it is to Boston's, despite ranking in the top three.

    Still think we’re a high chance.

    Toronto hasn’t slumped yet and we no longer have to deal with the London affected schedule. Should start to freshen up a bit soon hopefully.
