James Harden finished with 24 points, 12 assists, five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in the Rockets' 18-point win over the Wolves on Wednesday night.
Take away Harden's rough Game 2 and you find an excellent series from the probable MVP. Not only is he using his usual unbelievable offensive game but he's doing it at the other end too. In this five-gamer, the Beard averaged 2.4 steals and 1.2 blocks and if his defense is going to be at that level for the rest of the playoffs, we could be seeing that Rockets shade of red deep into June.
