Patrick Beverley    G  Rockets

 

 

The NBA is investigating an incident between a fan and Patrick Beverley after Game 3. It appeared Beverley had an argument with a fan just behind the basket, but there didn't appear to be any physical contact in the argument. As of Saturday afternoon, the NBA has not requested any video from Chesapeake Energy Arena. At worst, Beverley is likely just looking at a fine for this incident.

James Harden    G  Rockets

 

 

James Harden's 44 points were not enough in a Game 3 115-113 loss to the Thunder on Friday, adding six rebounds, six assists, one block, four 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 38 minutes. With the Rockets down two on the last possession of the game, Harden attempted a 3-pointer before the buzzer and couldn't get it to fall. It did look like he was trying to draw a foul on the play, and it's hard to blame him after he went 18-of-18 from the line in this loss. Harden's consistent scoring to start a postseason has been like nothing we've seen in quite some time, becoming the first player to start a postseason with three consecutive 35-plus scoring games since Michael Jordan in 1990. You can pencil him in for another one in Game 4 on Sunday.

Lou Williams    G  Rockets

 

 

Lou Wiliams scored 22 points with four rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Thunder on Friday. The Rockets went with plenty of no-center lineups in this game as they tried to battle back. Williams only played 23.5 minutes per game in the first two, which is a more realistic expectation for playing time in Game 4 on Sunday. He has scored at least 21 in each of his last two games, so he can clearly get it done with minutes under 25.

Patrick Beverley    G  Rockets

 

 

Patrick Beverley missed all six shots from the field and made 1-of-2 from the line against the Thunder on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three rebounds and six fouls. The 18.0 points per game he averaged in the first two games seemed like a fluke, but the law of averages was a little harsher than usual. Beverley will continue to see minutes in the 30s when he's not in foul trouble, so expect more scoring output with plenty of other stats on Sunday.

Sam Dekker    F  Rockets

 

 

Sam Dekker (hand) will see a doctor on Monday. He has been getting some shots up, but he's not catching passes with his left hand. Dekker suffered his hand fracture three weeks ago, so there's a chance he could have a timetable to return after his appointment. He is almost certainly out for the entire first round.

Mike D'Antoni    C  Rockets

 

 

Mike D'Antoni said the main reason he's in the discussion for coach of the year honors is because he has "a really good team." "Usually for the Coach of the Year the team has been underestimated, and that's how you get it," said D'Antoni. "Otherwise, Golden State and what they're doing, or what San Antonio's doing, but as people said, we're not going to make the playoffs, or barely make it, and then we have 55 wins. So, that's how you win Coach of the Year, and that's why most Coach of the Years get fired the next year. You overperform, then you come back to normal and they fire you." He's right.
