Harden Leads Elite Display to Silence Jazz in Game 1

posted by Ben DuBose - 

MVP lock James Harden had 41 points (12-of-26 FG), 8 rebounds, and 7 assists as the red-hot Rockets (17-of-32 from three-point range) raced ahead of the Jazz in Game 1 of their second-round series and never looked back in a 110-96 victory.

Our postgame show breaks it all down, including the importance of Houston showing its so-called “A game” after a dynamic performance from Golden State the day before; continued postseason excellence from Clint Capela (16/12) against another elite big in Rudy Gobert; strong defense amid the return of Luc Mbah a Moute; and why a sluggish game from Eric Gordon (7 points, 0-of-6 FG) and rust from Mbah a Moute (1-of-5 FG) suggests the Rockets could offset a probable regression from three-point range.
