In their 20 minutes of defensive time, the Rockets made 9 of 21 shots and blocked 6 shots. In the two games where Harden, who is known for scoring, played against the Lakers, he made only 1 of 9 shots in the face of the heavy eyebrows and the high-pressure defense of the two men.
Looking at it again, in today’s Thunder game, the two have almost reached the limit of their control over the outside line of the Thunder. In their defensive time close to 18 minutes, the Thunder made only 2 of 7 three-pointers during this period.
With this rhythm, the team history record of 7 consecutive away games at the start may continue to be refreshed.
