Harden, before facing the Lakers: "I played like the m ..."

James Harden has not been a regular in the series against the Thunder and will face one of the big favorites to win the NBA after it.


After the torture that the Thunder have subjected the Rockets to, for the Texans now comes a major challenge: LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers. The semifinals of the Western Conference are already complete with Houston's pass after a game and a tie that have put James Harden on the ropes. Brilliant in some games, gray in others and with bipolar in the final, in which he was very bad offensively but saved the ballot defending well.

After finishing with 17 points but with a terrible 4/15 in shots, below the 25% threshold, and 1/9 in the specific plot of the triples, James Harden released the outburst on television: "Sorry about the language, but I've played like shit. " 'The Beard' added: "I couldn't make a shot, I was losing the ball ... I was doing what is not supposed to be done, but I have kept trying because my teammates have given me enough confidence."

Harden averaged 29.7 points and 8 assists despite his feeling was bittersweet after such a negative finish. He is, along with his team, in the second round of the 2020 Playoffs, in which he will face the Lakers, who have had a few days to prepare for the duel with peace of mind, whoever wins that seventh game will win.

After his pairing with Luguentz Dort, Harden will now face other expert defenders. It remains to be known what Vogel's plan is now that the Rockets have also recovered Russell Westbrook, but they have valid outside defense such as Danny Green, Alex Caruso or Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
