James Harden stole the show on Tuesday night with 38 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in the Rockets’ 120-104 win over the Wizards.
The Beard is the likely MVP of the season and this is the type of performance that reaffirms that. Harden dismantled the Wizards with his offensive, well, wizardry. Much has been made about his shooting percentage of late and that’s a fair criticism after a 10-game stretch that saw Harden hit only 24 percent on triples. He corrected that with tonight’s 5-of-8 performance on top of everything else he did. An epic game and perfect timing to get the Rockets back on track after their blowout loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
