Harden turned back the clock in game 4 where he completely took over the game and helped the 76ers cruise past Miami to level up the series. He once again will be expected to shine and try to win this game for his team.

Jimmy Butler has quite arguably been the best player in this series, and he will look to continue his dominance to win this game for his team, and get the lead back in the series.
