    JAMES Harden scoffed at a reporter who questioned him about his struggles from long range in the last two games of the Houston Rockets' face-off with the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Western Conference finals.

    "Who cares," Harden said. "I'm just missing shots, but we're winning."

    The Rockets' bearded star scored 19 points but went 0-of-11 from three-point land against the Warriors in Game Five on Friday.

    He's now a combined 3-for-22 over the last two games.

    But to his credit, Harden had a hand in two big defensive stops down the stretch that enabled the Rockets to hold on to the win for a 3-2 lead going to Game Six on Sunday.

    "We had to rely on our defense once again," Harden said. "Game 4, we weren't making shots but defensively we were really good. Same thing tonight."
