James Harden fought through a poor 6-of-17 mark from the field to cook up 26 points, six rebounds, six assists, four threes, two steals and one block on Monday night.
The Beard supplemented his poor shooting by going 10-of-10 from the free throw line, and it’s nearly impossible for him to be held down. The Rockets got plenty of big fantasy lines in this one and that versatility is going to help them out in the postseason. While the thought of Harden being able to pump the brakes even a little bit is a mild concern for fantasy owners on paper, there’s nothing to keep him from cruising to a top-5 finish. The Rockets are a pinball machine and Harden will continue to produce monster lines with ease.
