When you are losing by 21 midway through the 2nd quarter, having your shot swatted into the first row isn’t going to help you gain any confidence or build any momentum. James Harden doesn’t lack confidence so getting his shot swatted by Jeremy Evans didn’t stop him from shooting…and shooting…and shooting against the Mavs on Saturday. He ended up with 25 points but missed 16 of his 21 field goal attempts. Most of his points came from the charity stripe where he made 14 of 14.
Harden also had 10 assists but 6 turnovers.
This block also gives me an excuse to post 2 of my favorite pics of the Evans who I once had the pleasure of judging a dunk contest with.
