This season ended for James Harden and the Brooklyn Nets after they lost Game 7 of the second round in overtime against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Harden played a total of 53 minutes as he scored 22 points, grabbed nine rebounds and dished nine assists, but it wasn’t enough for his team to prevail.

After the game, the 31-year-old guard revealed that he was dealing with a grade 2 hamstring strain, which limited him in this series. “It’s basically a grade 2 hamstring strain, so the first possession of Game 1 up until Game 5, that was the first time I did any basketball competition against anybody. I was literally going out there on a limb,” he said, per Michael Scotto.
