James Harden went just 3-of-17 from the floor on Wednesday, finishing with a mere 13 points against the Spurs in Game 2.
The Spurs threw everything they had at Harden, pressing to force the ball out of his hands and daring Ryan Anderson and Clint Capela to beat them. To his credit, Harden made smart passes and still finished with 10 assists, along with seven boards, two steals and two triples. Unfortunately for the Rockets, however, Harden attempted to shoot his way out of his slump late, generating empty possessions as Kawhi Leonard and company clamped down. Harden will look to bounce back at home on Friday as the Rockets attempt to reclaim the lead in the series.
