James Harden struggled to score in Thursday’s Game 2 111-98 victory over the Thunder, finishing with 21 points on 5-of-16 shooting (2-of-11 3PM) in 36 minutes.
Luguentz Dort made his return to the floor after missing Game 1 and he made it very difficult for Harden on offense. Harden was able to find others throughout the game as he had nine assists and pitched in with five rebounds, three steals and a block with no turnovers. The poor shooting doesn’t come often from one of the league’s most dominant scorers so we can expect some adjustments from the Beard ahead of Game 3 on Saturday. It was a very impressive victory over a tough Thunder team with Harden's shooting woes.
