James Harden finished Thursday with 28 points on 8-of-16 shooting to go with one rebound, 10 assists, two steals, a block and five triples.
Harden was awful again to start the first half (2-for-7 FG, seven points), but turned it up and closed out the game with some impossible looking stepbacks. He's actually been slumping a bit lately as teams are getting more creative with defending him and the Clippers had plenty of capable guys to handle him tonight. There was a moment in the fourth quarter where he missed both free throws and finished with a 7-for-10 mark at the line which was uncharacteristic. Considering how the game started, it was impressive he was able to turn it around.
