On Friday night, Harden added 12 assists and 10 rebounds, another triple-double. Forget those stats. The most irritating number to Thompson was six — as in the amount of players who scored double figures for Houston. If the Cavs entered the night determined to take Harden’s teammates out of the game then how did that many get going? “How many games has it been? At this point, we’ve taught everything we can teach,” Thompson said. “Now it’s up to the players to come out there and just do their job. Do your job. Simple. Our players didn’t do their job.”

On Friday night, every member of the Rockets — all 11 that played — scored at least four points. The non-Hardens erupted for 98 points, as Houston scored a season-high 141 points. “He’s a dynamic scorer, one of the best scorers in our league,” Thompson said of Harden. “But what makes him more dangerous is when he’s finding guys and getting other guys going. Rather have him score all the points and have the other guys be cold and not engaged in the game. That’s what we did last time. That’s what teams do. That’s what Milwaukee was doing. Had some success. Guys just didn’t follow along the game plan.”
“If you played hard and laid it on the line and we have energy and fight and everyone can see that, I think everyone can live better,” Thompson said. “At the end of the day we’re not the team with the most firepower. We know this. So for us to be in ballgames or win a ballgame, we’ve got to play damn near a perfect game. If we can compete every night and leave it out there, live with the results, (we can) sleep better at night.”
