It really stretches people out. Houston does the same thing. It was an interesting chess match, because they like to go small and we like to go small.
Harden on Game 1 loss:
You can’t give a really good shooting team easy layups and confidence. That’s what we did in the second quarter.

Harden on Howard:
He was a beast. He was a beast. Go ahead.
Tonight wasn’t my night to score. I was OK with that. But the one thing that I can always control is the paint and just try to get every rebound.
It was an up-and-down game, shot-making and play-making all over the place. This ranks up there with the toughest playoffs losses I’ve had in my long playoff career.
It was a hell of a game if you like offense. If you like defense, maybe not so much.

We want to win a championship and that’s the goal. You can have a great regular season but the most important thing is what you do in the playoffs.
We came out and had good juice. We had a great second quarter and really got out running and got some stops.
They were just better than us. They just outplayed us and there’s no shame in that for our group.

Having ‘Big Fella’ back today kind of helped us out a little bit, We’ve got to get his rhythm going ’cause we’re going to need him in the postseason.
Howard on knee protection:
There was a point in the game where I got kneed in my knee, but gotta go back to the Hakeem knee pads now, The most important thing is for me to stay healthy and kind of get into a rhythm for these last couple of games, then in the playoffs, really stride out.
I feel like in the second half we slowed our tempo down. I think we had them on their heels in the first half.
