James Harden entered Thursday leading the NBA in points per game. The reigning MVP was averaging 32.3 points per night. After scoring 45 points against the Boston Celtics, Harden’s scoring average is only going to rise.
Harden shot 11-of-26 from the field, 9-of-18 from beyond the arc, and 14-of-17 from the free-throw line versus the Celtics on Thursday. Whether you like the way he plays or not, the Rockets star is one of the best scorers the game has ever seen. Whenever you can put your name in a stat category that has Kobe Bryant in it, you are doing something right.
The Rockets are 8-2 in their last 10 games and starting to play like an elite team again. The offensive load is going to continue to fall on James Harden’s shoulders until All-Star point guard Chris Paul returns from his hamstring injury. Expect Harden to keep scoring the ball at a high rate and putting up staggering numbers.
