James Harden insists he’s “not involved in any respect” concerning the Rockets regardless of one other dismal quarter in defeat to the Jazz on Thursday.
On Monday, the Rockets had been outscored 17-9 by the Timberwolves within the fourth quarter en path to a street loss and a 12-minute spell once more value Houston in Salt Lake Metropolis, happening 38-11 within the third because the Jazz coasted to a118-91 win.
But Harden says there may be little to be overly nervous by, saying “it occurs in basketball”, though he’s eager for the Rockets to enhance.
“I am not involved in any respect,” Harden instructed reporters. “What would I be involved about? It occurs. It occurs in basketball.
“We have to look at the movie and work out learn how to get higher, whether or not that is successful the turnovers or defensively being higher. We do not know but. I am fairly certain it is a wide range of issues, although.”

Requested for his evaluation of the decisive third quarter, he added: “[The Jazz] bought off to a very good third quarter. We did not make photographs, they made photographs. We had a few errors on protection they usually capitalised on them.”
Houston slipped to 11-13 towards Utah, however Harden isn’t occupied with drawing comparisons to the Rockets crew that completed the 2017-18 common season as prime seeds.
“We won’t do something about final 12 months. We have to only concentrate on this 12 months, every sport and every day getting higher,” he stated. “Truthfully, we have got a very completely different roster.
“We concentrate on what we have got to enhance each sport. Issues aren’t at all times going to nice, however generally issues are going to go nice. We have simply bought to remain the tempo, keep the course till the tip.”
