James Harden was able to collect 29 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, three triples and a steal on Saturday but it wasn't enough to keep the Wolves from winning their first game of the series.
Harden was one of the few Rockets to get cooking on offense tonight and had to shake tight coverage throughout. To be clear, defense was more of the issue tonight, but some help with the scoring burden certainly wouldn't hurt. We'll see how he responds after the Minnesota faithful delivered some MVP chants to Jimmy Butler as well as some "Wolves in six" numbers towards the end of the game.
