Adidas' James Harden Gives Lackluster Performance in Final NBA Playoff Game

17 Мая, 2017, 02:05 | Author: Glenda Knight

The Golden State Warriors host the San Antonio Spur on Sunday for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. And the last time these two faced off, in March, the Warriors beat San Antonio by double digits (110-98). San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills (8) talks with guard Danny Green after Green was called for a technical foul during the second half in Game 6 of the team's NBA basketball second-round playoff series against the Hous.

"He's going to play", said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. And they've got all those weapons on the Warriors.

Watch him here: he stays as the ball goes baseline, in case he can help, backs out to play free safety as the ball passes the basket, checks to see where the pass may go, cuts off the angle and deflects it, causing the turnover. "I was trying to be more dominant down there".

Harden, an Adidas athlete, had a forgettable game in the 114-75 throttling of his Houston Rockets by the San Antonio Spurs at the Toyota Center in Houston. In doing so, the Spurs reminded everyone of how unsafe they can be - with seemingly any combination of players in the starting lineup - and also set up the matchup that we have been waiting for in the Western Conference for three years against the Golden State Warriors.

Game one of the best-of-seven Western Conference Finals will be played at the Warriors' Oracle Arena on Sunday (Monday 5.30am AEST).

"It's frustrating", Harden said of the loss.

"It falls on my shoulders. It happened, now we move forward". "I've been on both sides of this thing".

"Some nights, life hits you in the face", Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We've got just to figure out a way to get better, and we will".

The Celtics lead their second round series 3-2 and can close it out with a win Friday in Washington. Standing in their way is a playoff-tested San Antonio team, albeit one that is without injured point guard Tony Parker and now has a banged-up Kawhi Leonard. He did not attempt a shot until the 6:19 mark of the second quarter. The Rockets went 0-of-4.

His trey trimmed the Spurs' lead to 18 points.

A 3-pointer by Harden not long after that got Houston within 20, but San Antonio scored the next four points to make it 77-53 a couple of minutes later. The Warriors shot 51.2 percent overall (43/84) and were 50 percent (13/26) from the 3-point line.

"When we went down there our last time playing them in the regular season, they jumped on us the first quarter by making shots, but majority were second, third and fourth opportunities", Curry said.
