We didn't shoot the ball well, but we got to the paint and we finished.

Beverley sandwiched a floater and consecutive 3-pointers around three Harden free throws in the third quarter to extend the lead to 73-62. I think I missed my first six or seven shots from the perimeter, and I knew that wasn't going to go on for long, but I just continued to stay with it and continued to be aggressive.
