Harden Wants Ball in Fourth Quarter
In the final 12 minutes, (James) Harden initiated and orchestrated just three plays in the halfcourt. The first two came in the first 1 minute, 14 seconds of the fourth quarter. The last one was drawn up for Harden with 1:11 remaining.
During that 9 minute, 35 second gap, the Thunder went from being up seven points to down seven points.
“I think this entire postseason, even in the regular season, the fourth quarter, the majority of the time, I have the ball in my hands and making plays,” Harden said. “Hopefully, we’ll get back to that.”
