Russell Westbrook: “They thought it was theirs, we came and took it”


The NBA League continues to show how much we were missing, and this morning (Saturday), the Texan derby stole the show. Although the Dallas Mavericks dominated and led for the most part, including a seven-point lead 45 seconds to go, the Houston Rockets managed to force overtime and win at the end 149: 153.

The undisputed hero of victory was James Harden Who bombed 49 points (14 of 20 from the field), 9 rebounds and 8 assists. “We kept telling ourselves we were built for it,” the man and the old man explained. “We said we played four quarters because we have legs to push hard, and that we are mentally strong.”

Harden’s 49 points ensured that this is the third season in a row that he has at least 20 games in which he has scored more than 40 points, and he is second only to Wilt Chamberlain, who did so six seasons from 1959 to 1965.

“We ran for victory through our willpower,” he concluded Russell Westbrook, Who starred himself with 31 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists. “We came and took the game. They thought it was theirs, but we came and took it.”

Christopher Forzingis Did not hide his disappointment after providing 39 points and 16 rebounds: “It was a big loss for us. We have to learn lessons from this game. We have to watch it and see what we could have done a good day at the end to close the game, that’s all. I think we should To take the positive from this difficult loss, and try to learn from it. ”

Luka Doncic Although he recorded a triple double of 28 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists, but unfortunately, it just was not enough and he continued in the spirit of his Latvian friend: “We are a young team, we have a lot more to learn,” the Slovenian concluded. “Sure we’ll be better. I know we’ll connect when it’s most important, in the playoffs, so I’m not worried about that.”
