James Harden ripped for not shaking hands after Game 7 loss

29 May, 2018, 10:56 | Author: Hannah Francis

The Rockets will need to try and figure out a way to survive without Paul. He had a 27-point performance in their Game 4 win over the Warriors, keying a rally from 12 down in the fourth quarter, and he scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half of their Game 5 victory. "There's no way", D'Antoni said. The Warriors are plus-68 in third quarters during this season, including plus-35 in the past two games, when the Rockets really could have used Chris Paul's calming presence.

Golden State will host the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 NBA Finals with Game 1 set for Thursday night at 9:00 p.m. ET.

"It's the worst thing that could happen to him", Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said of Paul, referring to the emotional hit taken by the All-Star guard to miss out on the game that could have sent him to the finals for the first time.

That just means James Harden will have to heighten his game to a level he's never reached especially on a stage like this.

Given the talent disparity, on paper the Warriors should have no problem letting Cleveland hang around until delivering the final death blow in the second half.




"Monday", he said. "Please don't miss a game". "Forty-eight minutes, it lasts a long time and there's so many opportunities to get yourself going as a team". For example, if James Harden and Steph Curry play one-on-one and Harden wins 21-15, that means he is +6 while Curry is -6. But that could also cause Golden State to once again lack the necessary urgency from the get-go. "We knew it was a long shot".

"We were lucky to escape out of here", Kerr said. He's done everything he can to get Houston to this point. Kevin Love (13.9 points) is the team's next highest scorer, and he missed Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals with a concussion. His team had a 3-2 edge in this series and home-court advantage in their back pocket, and couldn't finish against a team that has mastered the style of play he introduced to the league during his days in Phoenix with a two-time Kia MVP running the show. The Cavs lost to the Warriors in five games a year ago, and they had Kyrie Irving to ease some of the scoring burden on James. They were 0 for 14 in the third quarter alone.

The problem has been Golden State had the same expectation. James Harden added 32 points for the Rockets.

It's easier to go with the Warriors if Chris Paul is ruled out for tonight's game. Thompson picked up his third foul with about 8 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter and sat out most of the period.

Curry finished with 27 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds.
