Trevor Ariza couldn’t replicate his success in Game 1 on Wednesday against the Spurs, scoring just two points on 1-of-5 shooting.
He missed all four of his looks from downtown despite being left wide open on all of them. The Spurs sold out to stop James Harden and Ariza simply couldn’t take advantage, as he added just five boards, one assist and one steal to his paltry scoring numbers. Ariza couldn’t even slow down Kawhi Leonard on the other end, making a rough night even worse. The Rockets will need him to bounce back in a major way if they hope to defend their home court on Friday in Game 3.
