He literally wasn’t even in the game for the vast majority of the comeback.
Worst timing ever for an interactive fan event. Props to PJ for being a true professional, as he always is, but he must be livid about everything.
Russell Westbrook: “Honestly, I thought we played a pretty good game. We played a good game for the most part. Obviously the last 6 minutes we didn’t play our best basketball, but I thought we had pretty much control of the game. There’s some good we can take out of this game.”
Via @statmuse: Most 3-point misses in an NBA game: 16 — James Harden (today) 16 — James Harden (Jan 8 2020) 16 — James Harden (Dec 2019) 16 — James Harden (Oct 2019) 16 — James Harden (Mar 2019) 16 — James Harden (Jan 2019) 16 — Damon Stoudamire (Apr 2005)
He scored 1 point in the second half. Russell Westbrook had 32 points on 67% shooting, along with 12 assists and 11 rebounds. If you’re trying to make this a referendum on Russ, you are a total clown.
Reminder that the Thunder did this on the road and with Steven Adams, Nerlens Noel, and Terrance Ferguson (their best Harden defender) all out. Down 15 with 6:50 left. There shouldn’t be any “tip your hat” lines after this one. This was an embarrassing collapse.

RT @TermineRadio: The biggest issue in Houston is lack of accountability. There's no one to tell James Harden to try something else when something isn't working. Chris Paul tried, and he was traded. Kevin McHale tried, and he was fired.
