6:05 pm
time-out. >> mark: we talked about taking the challenge defensively. that's harden reading and reacting. and to beverley, he does the rest. but it started on the defensive end. harden has been spectacular, offensively, and on that trip, defensively. >> mike: beverley, all fired up. a couple of big buckets here in the fourth. as you said earlier, mark, you look at capela. and goudelock, mcdaniels. the young guys, they were down by 12 in the third quarter, looked like they weren't ready for a comeback. the youth and energy got them

6:08 pm

6:10 pm
out of bounds. >> mike: yup. >> mark: really, that's harden grabbing the arm of kevin durant. >> mike: he's so good at that. that's what kevin durant was trying to say. so, it will be the one free throw, and then possession again. >> mark: the toughest guy, maybe in the history of the game, to referee. with the contact that happens, isolation, pick and roll in the seams. a lot of times, he gets fouled, no question. but there are a lot of times where he creates the contact. >> mike: harden, now with 39. gets it. and roberson, grabs him. that's after the inbound. that's why it was away from the play, because the ball hadn't been inbounded. now, harden, with a chance to get to the 40-point mark. >> mark: people say it works for him.
6:11 pm
i guarantee referees look at the film, and say, i missed that call. and they're going to look at the film, and say, i didn't give them that call, the same amount of times. >> jeff: i think there's no doubt that despite his high free throw attempt numbers, they could be higher. >> mike: well, he's got 40 today. 11 of 13 from the free-throw line. 9 assists. >> jeff: and some knucklehead will post on youtube when he doesn't guard one time. no, seriously. instead of posting every spectacular play the guy makes. >> mike: you admit, sometimes his defense is poor. >> mark: he's a great player, and he can play for me any day of the week. >> mike: morrow, in and out. westbrook banks in the follow. seven-point game, with 11.3
6:12 pm
and the thunder, still battling. more free throws to wrap it up. howard, engaging some of the fans. j.b. bickerstaff, urging his team all afternoon. play better defense. boy, he got it in the fourth. >> mark: one thing you need to look at if you're okc, it's a pattern of losing ball games when you have the lead going into the fourth quarter. you need to find a way to fix it. >> jeff: and despite the individual confidence in themselves, the team confidence, to be able to execute under pressure, it can take a hit when you continually lose leads. >> mike: westbrook trying to draw the foul. gets it to waiters.
6:13 pm
six-point game, 5.7 remaining. thunder not giving up. and a foul on beasley. you would think the thunder, the way they're playing, this game is meaningless to them. they're going to be the third spot in the west. but still fighting. >> jeff: but the chance to improve, the chance to grow. into being what, they're feeling good about their chances to win it all. and tonight, the turnovers, to me, are the big problem. when they play with high turnovers, they have 20 tonight so far. no team can withstand that against the great teams in the west. >> mike: beasley hits those. this is james harden. with another huge game against his former team. westbrook lost it. that will do it.
6:14 pm
