James Harden came up short in Game 7 against the Warriors on Monday despite scoring 32 points with six boards, six assists, four steals and two triples in the 92-101 rout.
Houston took the Warriors to the edges of their comfort zone but ultimately fell short. The Warriors used a 33-15 third to pull ahead of the Rockets who had their 3-point shot abandon them in the second half when they shot 1-of-21. The Rockets have found a formula to success but it’s going to be rough if Chris Paul is continually hurt for the games that matter most.
