james harden Therefore, he will have waited for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal to find his scoring skills and, above all, to take the game on his own. We are in the fourth quarter and Embiid is on the bench. It’s time for the All-Star guard to step up and put his team on his shoulders.
That’s what he’ll do as he planted 16 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, and obviously we remember this “step back” that gives him a 12-point lead heading into the 4th quarter. The room and the Philly bench explode, and James Harden lets his rage explode. This may be the first time we see him in a Sixers jersey.
That’s why he’s here. That’s why we brought him here.” explains Joel Embiid. “Since he’s been there, he’s adjusted to what we need, whether it’s creation or points like tonight. Seeing how they defend themselves against others, she had to take some tough shots. That’s what he’s been doing his entire career, and that’s why he’s here! »
What Doc Rivers remembers is that Philly took the break while Joel Embiid rested, and that bodes well.
“Joel needed a break, and when that group came onto the pitch, we drew fouls, increased the lead, and when Joel came back on, they were already at the penalty spot.” Doc Rivers says. ” It’s huge. At that point, every time they touch you, they foul, you go over the line and you have shots. It’s important to us. »
In this fourth inning, James Harden took just 18 shots but was involved in 54 of 98 points (or 55%) for the Sixers when he was on the field.
“Nothing has really changed. I just put in some shots…” assures the former MVP, who remembers that he has only been there since February. “We are still a fairly new team. We only have two months. We’re finally getting a foothold in this series, and tonight we found some things that worked.”
” We had three minutes to create the biggest difference possible and try to get more than 10 points ahead.
For Tobias Harris, James Harden adapts to what the defense gives him, and the Heat’s many zone passes forced him to take more of his chances. Successful: 6 of 10 in triples.
“Does a great job analyzing the game” believe the end of the Sixers. “In his way of analyzing the moments in which he has the right to create, and those in which he has to shoot. Tonight we could see his confidence, and after going to the circle the 3-point spots opened up for him. He sees so many different defensive covers in front of him. They are often in the zone and sometimes it is difficult for him to be aggressive in attack. But when he finds his rhythm, you just have to give him the ball, and things go on. »
For James Harden, it’s all about “defense and pace.” “In the fourth quarter, that’s where the game is played. Jo had done a great job of putting us in a good position. Especially in the 3rd quarter. In the 4th quarter we started with possession and we had three minutes to create the biggest difference possible and try to get more than 10 points ahead. We did a good job thanks to our defense and our pace. »
