James Harden was his typically electric self on Wednesday night, scoring 31 points with 10 assists, seven boards, one steal and three blocks against the Nuggets.
Denver has one of the more putrid defenses in the NBA, so it should come as little surprise that Harden was able to pick them apart. He went 8-of-19 from the floor, 4-of-10 from 3-point range and 11-of-15 from the line, and absolutely butchered the Nuggets in the paint. Harden consistently snuck by the Nuggets perimeter defenders and drew contact in the lane time and time again. He’s looking like a lock to finish as the top player in eight cat leagues.
