James Harden finished Game 5's closeout win with 26 points (10-of-26 shooting), six rebounds, six assists, three steals, four blocks and three 3-pointers.
Similar to his Game 3 win, Harden was unable to get his shot to fall throughout the first half of this game. His shot was hitting in the second half of this game, however, and his all-around effort left him two steals and a block away from a 5-by-5. He and the Rockets will now turn their attention to a likely date with the Warriors in Round 2.
