"It's OK," Harden said when answering a question that started with how the Rockets were on a roll. "Yeah. Nah, it's alright, man. We lost. We know we did. Good thing about it is we play again on Friday. It's one loss."
Of course, a loss to the Warriors has the potential to carry more weight than others, especially for the Rockets, who Golden State has eliminated in the playoffs in three of the last four postseasons, including last season's seven-game Western Conference finals.
