Harden scored 35 points and the Rockets overcame 51 points from Westbrook in the highest-scoring triple-double in playoff history.
For the Wizards, John Wall made playoff career-high 32 points in the win over Hawks in Game 1 on Sunday. "We don't care if he shoots the ball 30 times, I think he didn't know he shot it 27 times until he got in the locker room, but like we said, those are all good shots you're taking and when he's aggressive for us, it opens up the floor for me".
"Been getting a lot of treatment every day and doing the stuff I was doing before I had it", Wall said. Thanks to 23 points and almost 11 assists per game this year, Wall catapulted the Wizards to a 49-33 finish and spent a good portion of the year fighting for a top 3 seed in the conference.
Wizards and Hawks meet for Game 2
WIZARDS: In addition to containing Howard, C Marcin Gortat had 14 points on 7 of 11 shooting and 10 rebounds.
"It's all a part of the game, man", Morris said. They won home-court advantage and they got this first game. He's the one with the big contract. Atlanta can't steal the series from Washington if Hardaway is missing shots because he's going to shoot regardless. He plays with a chip on his shoulder. In short, it was a "successful" quarter in that the Hawks mucked things up to the tune of 16 combined fouls and 18 combined three throws but it certainly was not a viewer's choice period. That lead remained until Brandon Jennings hit back-to-back jumpers and fed Jason Smith for a tying dunk during a 70-second flurry.
When John Wall sees backcourt partner Bradley Beal square up for a jump shot, one thought goes through his mind: "Game over". And this particular streak went a long way in helping the Wizards secure a playoff win. He's trying to find his teammates at all times.
The third quarter, unequivocally, was better for the Hawks and it began with Washington's trio of Markieff Morris, Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre picking up a fourth foul each within the first four minutes. It was Jason Smithwho really stepped up for the frontcourt, playing almost 28 minutes with eight points, eight rebounds, and a few thunderous slams. He was shooting some free throws. Gortat's signature moment came late in the game when he threw down a viscous slam over Paul Millsap that not only counted for two points, but also sent a bit of a message to the opposition.
"They were the aggressor for more of the 48 minutes than we were and they were probably more physical for more of the 48 minutes than we were", said Budenholzer. He's the most mild-mannered person that I've been around that has a competitive spirit.
