Coaching. Barry Trotz’s playoff woes in Washington are well documented. He’s all but coaching for his job here. It has been widely reported that the 55-year-old does not have a contract for next season.

We’re going to shoot the 3-ball well, we’re going to be aggressive, we’re going to attack.
Harden, who missed all seven of his shots from the floor in the first quarter, didn’t hang his head when his easy floater missed to start the second half. He attacked again the next possession, getting a finger roll to fall.
