James Harden Carrying The Thunder

After trailing by 12 points in the first quarter, the Thunder have cut the Lakers' lead to four thanks in large part to the play of James Harden.

Harden leads all scorers with 12 points in his 10 minutes of play off the bench. Since he entered the game, Harden has attacked the Lakers defense, drawing three fouls. He's made 3-of-7 shots from the floor and 5-of-6 free throw attempts.

The Thunder have needed Harden's hot streak as Kevin Durant has not made a basket since the 5:03 mark of the first quarter.
