Despite a 6-of-18 shooting line, James Harden’s abilities were on full display in Saturday’s 123-120 win over the Celtics in the form of 26 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, five steals, a block and three triples.
The Beard made up for his poor shooting by hitting 11-of-13 at the free throw line as the Rockets hung on for their 15th straight win. They were down by six in the fourth but their starpower is simply too much to overcome, and Harden is cruising to a well-deserved MVP award. His fantasy owners only need to worry about bringing the snacks while Harden and the rest of the Rockets put on an incredible offensive show. We’ll see if he can somehow find another gear as Houston sets its sights on the league record for most consecutive victories.
