Plagued by foul trouble, Harden watched most of the 3rd quarter from the bench – the same place the Clippers star and birthday boy Chris Paul was painfully watching the game. But once James got back into the game, he took over the way you would expect a player who felt he should have won MVP would play.
“I knew my team was battling extremely hard and basically it was up to me to go out there and push us forward,” Harden said.
The Beard went off for 16 of his 32 points in the 4th quarter and helped the Rockets even up the series with a 6 point win.
“We let Game 1 slip away and we didn’t want that feeling for Game 2,” Harden said. “It’s going to be a tough two games in a row, but we’ve got our mojo now.”
