James Harden quotes

I just missed shots. I missed shots. I didn't convert my layups. We knew they were going to come out with some aggressiveness in Game 2.feedback

That's not going to change. Our pace is always going to be there. It's my job to make sure the ball gets past halfcourt and guys are in attack mode, guys are getting shots.feedback

Just talking greasy, talking crazy. So, I was standing up for my teammates and that's what it was.feedback

Just taking what the defense gives us. Last series (against Oklahoma City) was a more grind-it-out. We weren't really making a lot of 3s. We had to figure a way to get paint points and in this series so far they gave opportunities to shoot 3s.feedback

That's what's exciting. We can play 10-times better, especially offensively.feedback

Pat brings that every single night. He brings it and that's what we love about him. He's a dog especially on the ball and his offensive game has gotten a lot better, been knocking down the 3-point shots. We need him to be that way. That's what makes us who we are.feedback

We've got so many guys that can step up and make plays that haven't got going yet. And that's I think why I'm excited because those guys are going to step up and make big shots in the next series.feedback

He's just the coolest guy on Earth. I would have probably ran over there and tried to help him.feedback

Everything isn't always going to be perfect. You've got guys that step up and help you make big plays, always have your back ... we're not worried about our shooting, our shooting is going to come.feedback

We were down two, so I just wanted to get the best shot available, honestly. I didn't try to overthink it or whatnot. I just dribbled up the basketball court and I see the paint kind of close in once I passed halfcourt. I gave him (Roberson) a little jab, and he bit for it, and I just shot the ball. I shot it with confidence. It was a little bit short.feedback

It wasn't pretty. We didn't make a lot of shots. We gave them the early lead and we had to fight our way back and we did. We didn't give up. We continued to fight and grind and figure out a way to win.feedback

I told the guys, Just stay with it,' . If you got a shot, shoot it. And if you have an opportunity to drive, take those opportunities.feedback

That's all our offense is about, reading what the defense gives us and take it. Last game they did a really good job of taking away our threes, just try to get into the paint attack and get layups, just take what they give us.feedback

We tried it in New York, and it was going good for a while, and then a couple things happened and got us off the rails. Then Los Angeles, we just didn't have a chance.feedback

It was huge for us. The entire game, they had us down, I think, double-digits and we got it to 6 and we never got it over that.feedback

Our first game it was cruise control, and so we knew that Game 2 was going to be a lot different, and it was. We had to figure out a way to win the game, and so it wasn't pretty. We didn't make a lot of shots and we gave them an early lead and then we had to fight our way back and we did. We didn't give up, we continued to grind and fight and figure out a way to win. Tonight was a perfect case.feedback

He does it every game. That's the reason why we're in the position that we're in. He brings it every game. Whether or not his shot is falling or not, he brings that intensity. Tonight he made shots, he rebounded the ball at a high level, he's just Pat tonight.feedback

I don't want to talk about that. I'm focused on the playoffs. We got a game here tonight. That's the most important thing.feedback

When I get on the floor I got one friend and that's the basketball. Since 10 years old. That's never gonna change.feedback

I do, too. I'm at my own pace. I'm a little smoother. Just try to get the job done.feedback

For sure, as a matter of fact, I will text him when I get on the bus, that's big time. We don't do no hating, for sure.feedback

I think that's the most important thing, I thought winning is what this is about, period. I'm not going to get in-depth with all that, but I thought winning was the most important thing. If you set your team up in a position to have a chance, at the ultimate goal, that's the most important thing.feedback

It's a huge accomplishment. He's been playing extremely well all season long, it's never been done before it's a great individual accomplishment and it's great.feedback

It's just another great individual stat. But like I said my job is to go out there and try to get my teammates involved, try to build their confidence so we're able to go out there and play and everybody is feeling good that's the most important thing. If none of my teammates are feeling good, I won't be anything and we won't be far as to where we're trying to go, that's the most important thing. That's my job every night and I think for the most part, guys are feeling good we just got to continue to keep going.feedback

Yeah, because you're not leaving your teammates [hanging] out there to dry. For me, I worry about always having my teammates' backs, and always being out there knowing, no matter what, I'm going to be out there, unless I'm injured. That's a different story. But for me, I'm going to be out there and I'm going to have their back and they'll have mine, as well. For the coaching staff and the fans, especially in Houston, the front office, I'm here to play.feedback

Personnel, and the trust my teammates have in me. That's very important.feedback

Personnel. You ask any player around this league, and there's nothing better than having your teammates trusting you, knowing that you can go out there and play free, and knowing they have your back at all times.feedback

It's pretty tough man, I'm not going to lie. I don't feel sorry for myself at all (but) the shot is just short and it's frustrating when you can't really follow through.feedback

They did a good job of crashing the glass. Obviously, if we got some of those we would have given ourselves a better chance to get the win, but we didn't.feedback

We just have to figure it out. We are a team that is capable of doing that. We knew March was going to be a tough month when we looked at the schedule in the beginning.feedback

It's a big win for us, especially because we're down the stretch and it's time to begin preparing ourselves for postseason. Big win against the defending champs.feedback

That was a good block, but initially I got fouled. That's why the ball took so long to get up, but it's a good block. We just didn't win.feedback

That was a good block, but initially I got fouled. That's why the ball took so long to get up. It was a good block and we just didn't win.feedback

Of course, but it doesn't matter who we're playing. We're winding down to the end of the season, and it's very important for us to take care of business and lock in. We can face any of these opponents at any point in the postseason. We just want to continue to get better and win as many games as we can.feedback

I told him just go out there and play his game and if you have an open shot, shoot it. He led our team in scoring in his first game, so yes, he fits in well with us.feedback

Man, we just relaxed. Honestly, we did a good job in the first three quarters, and in the fourth quarter, I don't know what happened. Obviously, we didn't make shots, but defensively, we just relaxed. We didn't follow our principles.feedback

Just tried to be aggressive (in) attack mode and make plays for my teammates. They weren't leaving our shooters, so we had to figure different ways to be aggressive and attack them. In the second half, we figured it out. He's a problem. Big, athletic, can shoot the 3. He has an extremely bright future as you can see. Philly fans are always exciting. The atmosphere was good. It got me going it a little bit, I'm sure it got my teammates going. It's always fun to play in games like that.feedback

None of us are happy, but it happens. So what? What's next? And that's what our motto is.feedback

We had 15 turnovers as a team and I had 10 of them, and I've got the ball in my hands 90 percent of the time. It's going to happen. I can have 15 turnovers, as long as we have 15 turnovers as a team, it doesn't matter, who cares.feedback

Helping each other out, having each other's backs. Offensively, we're knocking down shots, we're playing off the catch, we're doing the small things to help each other out.feedback

Key plays at the end of the game. It was a charge. Just try to do the intangible things to help out. Obviously, we know I can hit shots and whatnot, but just trying to do the small things that win games.feedback

They (the Thunder) did a good job (setting up defensively) on the first play so we called a timeout. I just got open and I saw two defenders guarding me, made the simple play to Nene and he knocked down two free throws.feedback

I don't know what they was on tonight. That other team was trippin' tonight, just disrespectful, unprofessional -- players and coaches. I don't know what was their problem, but I think that got us going. They wanted to throw a little cheap shot and just woke us up a little bit, and it was over from there.feedback

Normal game, just didn't make shots, especially down the stretch when we needed to. That was it.feedback

We didn't shoot the ball well, and we still had an opportunity to win.feedback
