Thoughts: Considering Adams plays with a top 2 rebounding point guard named Russell Westbrook, I am not surprised Clint has the edge in rpg, having said that, it is clear Steven is better at crashing the glass on the offensive end. Close but I’d give the edge to Capela who played less minutes.

Comments: Man it’s  really close again, based off what has been provided, I would give the edge to Adams only because Steven plays well BOTH in the restricted area as well as in the paint non R.A. unlike Clint, but both do mainly get their points because of their main playmaker  (Russ and Harden). If you watch both players you would know Steve takes more contested shots than Clint as well.

Thoughts: Clint is the superior rim protector and has had a lower defensive rating (that’s a good thing) each year, but on Iso D, Steve held bis man to a lower percentage than Clint did. Also, overall Steven held his man to a lower field goal percentage than Capela did. The contested shot stat goes as far as 2017, another stat Adam had more than Clint. Clint did defend the 3 better, but Steve defended the 2s more well so, overall I give Adams the edge.

Comments: No doubt in crunch time Steven Adams was the better rebounder, scorer and factor than Clint. Once again Adams win a category.

 

Head to head:

Steven: 10.8pts, 7.1rpg, 1.1apg, 1.1stls, 1.1blks, 1.4 fouls, .646 FG%, 29 mins, 5-5 record vs Clint.

Clint: 10.6ppg, 6.1 rpg, .2apg, .8stls, 1.6blks, 3.1 fouls, .657 FG%, 21 mins.

 

Conclusion:

In the end of day both do their roles well but I’m gonna take Adams over Clint since he has the edge in more categories.
