The coach also praised “The best game of Harden’s career, it was perfect”

I read the opponent’s defense completely.

James Harden played a game that will go down in NBA history. Game 1 of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs in the 2022-2023 season held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 16th (Korean time). Against the Brooklyn Nets, he led the Philadelphia 76ers to a 121-101 victory with 23 points, 4 rebounds and 13 assists, including 7 3-pointers.

Harden is the only player in NBA playoff history to have 7 or more 3-pointers and 12 assists in a single game. After the game, Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers praised, “I think it was the best game of Harden’s career. I played a perfect game. I have nothing more to say.”스포츠토토

Teammate Joel Embiid, who was in the top 3 regular season MVP for three consecutive seasons, also helped. “Harden is by far the best playmaker in the league. But I hoped that Harden would not stop passing and assembling the game. I would like him to be more aggressive like today (16th). He should not stop as a playmaker, but also develop his own creative attack. do,” he said.

On this day, Philadelphia threw 43 three-pointers and scored 21 of them. He holds the record for most 3-pointers made in team playoff history.

In particular, 58% of the shots entered were through passes. This is the second highest in Philadelphia playoff history. In all, Harden’s stake was absolutely great.

Brooklyn played a double-team defense with two defenders on Embiid. Harden attacked it relentlessly. He finished with a quick pass to an empty teammate or scored himself.

Harden said, “I tried to participate in the offense more actively. The opponent double-teams Embiid. It means that someone other than Embiid should shoot and attack.” “I think Embiid will be the MVP this season. “Whether he scores 40 points alone or checks his teammates’ shooting chances, it will definitely help the team. We are all ready.”
