Harden connected on 16 of his 32 field goal attempts while also knocking down eight 3-pointers throughout the night. I took my shots when I had the opportunities, and not only myself. And against the Heat, Houston needed every minute of that performance. "I worry about taking the shots that I work on, and they're going to go in eventually". "All of us were like, 'He had that many points?' We had no idea he had that many points". It was a must-win for us. "It was a total team effort tonight".

"Double-digit lead all of us a sudden you look up and they were right there".
