James Harden led his Rockets to a 124-117 win in Portland on Saturday with 48 points, eight boards, three dimes, three steals, four 3-pointers and only two turnovers on 16-of-29 from the field and 12-of-14 from the line.
M-V-P! It’s lines like these that have him as the front-runner for the award so far in fantasy leagues. The one hole in is fantasy game, turnovers, has been easily manageable this season. After averaging 5.7 last year, he’s down to 4.5 this season and only 2.6 over the last two weeks. If he can continue that downward trajectory, which is a legitimate possibility with Chris Paul handling the ball more, he can finish as the top fantasy player in 9-category leagues as well as 8-cat.
