The Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors have tipped off Game 4 of the 2018 Western Conference Finals, and needless to say, there’s a lot on the line in this game. Houston can tie the series up and reclaim home-court advantage with a win while Golden State can take a commanding 3-1 lead heading back to Houston, where they can close it out and advance to the NBA Finals in Game 5.
With a lot on the line for James Harden, his team needed him to be extra aggressive and he did just that, finishing with nine points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block in the opening quarter. One questionable moment, however, happened in the first when Harden had a wide open three-point shot attempt and didn’t take it. He was open for a few seconds, actually, and still decided to pass it up to teammate P.J. Tucker.

The Rockets will need Harden to take and make those types of shots if they want any shot at winning tonight’s game and going back home with a tied series.
