James Harden and Rockets Advance

For the first time since 2009, Houston will advance to the second round behind another solid performance by James Harden, who scored 28 points in the Rockets Game 5 win to beat the Dallas Mavericks 103-94.

“We have a lot of guys in this locker room that are hungry,” Harden said. “They want to win and want to do whatever it takes to win. When you get a group like that, you got a lot of guys who are willing to sacrifice.”
