“We don’t really go for stuff like that, but we know we’re capable of hitting a lot of threes like that. I expect us to do that, it was good to see,” said Gordon, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.
“It was our night, but I think we can do more. We’re gonna break the record again. We can make more than 26 threes. We just gotta continue to do what we do and thrive, but tonight was fun.”
The pace was incredible for Houston, and the Wizards were in for a rough night.
“They got a lot of good isolation plays and they made tough threes, the step-back threes were tough and they make them,” Wizards coach Scott Brooks said.
“They took 55 threes. We knew going into the game they were going to take a lot of them. They were hot and they’ve been hot for a while now. They have a couple of hot players and there’s not much you can do when they’re making contested threes.”

“It takes the body a little time to adapt. But I’ll hit my stride. I’ll be ready for the playoffs.”
Rockets’ James Harden Prefers to Play in a System Versus Hero Ball
Houston Rockets superstar James Harden has been having a phenomenal season offensively, but many people aren’t a fan of his “hero ball” style of play to rack up the stats.
Golden State Warriors’ guard Steph Curry said that he spoke with Harden, and that Harden stated his preference to play in a system, rather than play “hero ball”.
2019 | @stephencurry30 on conversation with @jharden13 “I talked to James in the back… obviously complemented him on what he’s done. First thing he says is, it’s fun, but I want to play different. Playing by myself or whatever , heroball — the people wanna play in a system where they actually can play beautiful basketball with guys that know how to play.”
