James Harden was terribly inefficient on Saturday night, shooting 7-for-27 from the field en route to 25 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in a loss to the Spurs.
Harden went a horrific 1-for-13 from deep and only salvaged this line by going 10-of-13 at the charity stripe. The counting stats were there at least. He's still getting his numbers but you have to wonder how much his percentages will suffer with defenses adjusting to the fact that the Rockets just aren't an offensive juggernaut these days. Teams can start to feel more and more comfortable throwing extra help his direction. It's not going to knock The Beard too far down the rankings but it's an unappealing development.
