Straight to the heart of the game…
The Clutch, the Center, or the Guard?
At 7 minutes and 18 seconds of the 1st quarter, the Houston Rockets makes its first three-point of the game with James Harden jump shot.
Game 2 of the NBA playoffs gave the Golden States Warriors, Klay Thompson, the first shot for 2 after the jump ball.
It’s a tie to 2. The first one goes to the Warriors and this time it’s a 127-105 in favor of the Rockets.
Is it an 83 or an 82? Watching Harden getting a 3-pt. or a 2-pt. shot on the 3rd quarter? The game was very intense when the team shows passes, switching, starting on the 4:20 of the 2nd quarter to the 3rd quarter of the game. Starting on the 2nd quarter, Warriors put 3 guards on Chris Paul every time he has the ball making easy for PJ Tucker and Eric Gordon free for a 3-pt.
Gaining on “the Clutch” tag, being bench for a technical foul on the 2nd half of the game, pushing James Harden off of the court.
“Clutch performance in sports is the phenomenon of athletes under pressure, usually in the last minutes of a game, to summon strength, concentration and whatever else necessary to succeed, to perform well, and perhaps change the outcome of the game. It occurs in basketball, hockey, football, other sports and sports.” -From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
