How goes James Harden so goes the Thunder? That's been the case the first four games of the series.
After going scoreless in two losses in Los Angeles, Harden averaged 16.5 points in the Thunder's two Ford Center wins. Harden, who grew up 20 miles from the Staples Center, went 14-of-16 at the line in the two wins.
Thunder fans are getting creative. Two signs in the “Show Me the Money” contest Saturday night took jabs at the Lakers. The winner was a picture of Ron Artest's yellow hair, the sign reading: “Dennis Rodman Wants His Hair Back.” The runner-up was a sign with a picture of Jack Nicholson in a Thunder shirt: “I Make Blue Look Good.”
Fast break. . .
The Thunder did not practice Sunday. They will practice today at their facility before flying to Los Angeles this afternoon. ... Harden's 4-point play in the second quarter (3-point basket, foul and free throw) was the Thunder's first since Feb. 21 when Durant had a 4-point play in a win at Minnesota.
