James Harden scored 21 points on 6-of-23 shooting (2-of-11 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) in Friday’s win over his old Thunder squad, and also added nine rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and eight turnovers in 37 minutes.
Have you heard the revenge game joke? Maybe a Bane quote? All kidding aside, hopefully you didn’t declare it was ‘Mission Accomplished’ for the No. 1 seed, as Harden has dropped to No. 3 and No. 7 in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively. It’s all about slipping efficiency, turnovers and big time competition at the top of fantasy leagues — and the race for No. 1 will be a fascinating discussion pretty much all year.
