James Harden was asked if he thought the Sixers were less engaged as the Heat in Game 5.

(Via House of Highlights):

“Yeah. From the jump, though. What they got? 31 points in that 1st quarter. I think we just weren’t engaged defensively and that slowed down our offense. We gotta be engaged. We gotta be locked in. In the 2nd round of the playoffs on the road in a Game 5, it’s not good enough just to play hard. You gotta play hard and you gotta be able to think, possession by possession. We just didn’t put enough thinking possessions together, and that was the case.”
