Ja Morant circled back toward the top of the 3-point arc, took two more dribbles and sized up James Harden. The reigning NBA MVP didn’t budge, so Morant uncorked a 3-pointer that hit nothing but net. Then he turned back down court and was caught on camera uttering a new catchphrase that’s made its way around the country this week. “Tell that mother-(expletive) about me,” Morant said
Harden, with nary a word of pessimism, alluded to a lack of continuity this season. Eric Gordon has missed 24 games, Clint Capela seven and Westbrook five (mostly for rest). “We haven’t had any consistency with our full rotation yet this entire season,” Harden said. “Hopefully, that time will come when we can get a full roster and catch a rhythm, but until then, we’ll continue to rack up wins. “Overall, we’ve been playing pretty good. We know who we are. We know that our time’s gonna come, as far as catching a rhythm and running off multiple —10, 12, 15 games in a row. We haven’t done that yet. Our time’s gonna come.”
“Attention to detail,” Covington told The Athletic about how he defends Harden. “I’ve played with Harden, I’ve watched a lot of film. It’s just knowing I’m a defender, and like you said, paying attention and watching film, tendencies, and stuff.” “His length,” Saunders added in what helps Covington. “His size, his ability to contest. He’s a tough cover, James is, but Robert is a guy who’s been around him and forced him into some tough looks at times.”
