James Harden finished with 20 points, four assists, one steal, one block, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in the Rockets’ lopsided loss to the Wizards on Friday night.
This isn’t really a line to complain about but Harden owners have come to be spoiled by his statistical brilliance that this line doesn’t live up to the standards that the Beard has set. When a guy is averaging 32-5-9, a 20-0-4 isn’t quite going to cut it. Beyond that, Harden might be tired after a barnburner of a game in Boston last night. He didn’t play with the aggression normally seen. He shot just six free throws, his first time shooting less than 10 free throws in more than two weeks.
