• James Harden
    G, Houston Rockets

    James Harden carried the Rockets to a 102-97 win on Monday with 47 points on 14-of-31 shooting to go with four triples, six rebounds, five assists and five steals.

    Harden has been carrying the majority of the Rockets' offensive load over the past week and tonight was no exception. The Jazz took a lead in the third quarter, but Harden scored nine straight points by himself to retake control of the lead. The game was tied late in the fourth quarter and Harden hit two step-back triples to seal the deal and extend the Rockets' winning streak to four games. The Beard is as sharp as ever with improved numbers from last year's MVP campaign.
