Even when the Rockets won in the playoffs, Harden failed to live up to expectations. He had one of the worst games of his career in part three of the first-round series against the Utah Jazz. His stat line was the stuff of nightmares as he tried to ruin it for his teammates again.
Yes, he scored 22 points but 14 of these came from the free-throw line. He missed a ludicrous number of shots as the Rockets scraped a victory. This is the story of Harden’s postseason record because he isn’t a clutch performer. That’s the difference between him and the all-time greats (via CBS Sports).
