James Harden had 38 points, 10 boards, 9 dimes, 3 steals, and the ball in his hands, down 1, with the clock ticking down. Harden passed it to a surprised Dwight Howard, who quickly passed it back, and Harden felt the double team of Clay and Curry. Harden never got a shot off, the clock expired, and with it the Warriors had a 2-0 edge in the Western Conference Finals.  Steph Curry had 33 points and 6 dimes for the Warriors.
