• James Harden
    G, Houston Rockets

    James Harden continued his MVP-like numbers into the playoffs as he scored 29 points with eight rebounds and 10 assists in a 122-90 blowout win over the Jazz in Game 1 on Sunday.

    He did shoot just 11-of-26 from the field and 4-of-10 from deep, but the Rockets had this game in the bag since just before halftime. The Rockets should win this series as long as Harden puts up these numbers, but the real test comes when they likely face the Warriors next round.
