(AP) -- James Harden had one of the worst games of his career his last time out. If the Houston Rockets are going to avoid a season-high third straight loss when they host the Golden State Warriors on Friday night, they'll likely need better play from their star guard.
Harden went 3 of 17 from the field and 0 for 10 from 3-point range in a 97-88 loss to Phoenix on Wednesday. His 10 misses from beyond the arc were tied for the most 3-point attempts without a make in his five-year career.
"We have 82 games, so it's going to happen. We're going to miss some shots," said Harden, who is still battling a foot injury that kept him out of four games in November. "Other guys have to step up and make plays and fit our system."
