According to Second Spectrum tracking, Houston Rockets guard James Harden did not make a stepback 3-pointer in either Game 2 or Game 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves after hitting five in Game 1. That was a factor in Harden shooting a combined 11-of-39 from the field in those two games. He's found the touch again during tonight's Game 4, knocking down a pair of stepback 3s in the second quarter.
