Rockets' Harden named Western Conference player of the month

Share

James Harden is keen to shift the analysis of his game from his fouls to his "greatness" after the Rockets downed the Warriors.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green scored 9 points (4-of-7 field goals, 1-of-1 free throws) with 11 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks, and 4 turnovers in 36.9 minutes of a 135-134 overtime loss to the Houston Rockets on Thursday.

A week ago, the Portland Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard made a 26-foot 3-pointer before falling down along the right side to lift his team to a 110-109 overtime win at Oracle Arena. The reigning NBA MVP finished with a game-high 44 points to go along with 15 assists and 10 rebounds. It wouldn't surprise Curry to see the Rockets in a postseason rematch after the Warriors overcame a 3-2 deficit to beat Houston in seven games in the Western Conference finals a year ago.

The Warriors, who remain near the top of the Western Conference, understand that they are a marked target. The most he has scored is 50, which came in a win over LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers on December 14. It also marked his ninth-straight game with at least 35 points and five assists, an National Basketball Association record.

Harden has scored over 40 points in each of the Rockets' last five games. "It's simple as that", said Harden about people critical of his playing style.

The endless combination of dribble moves mixed with his point guard instincts and off-the-bounce shooting is something the league has never seen in a single player before, and it's led to the rewriting of the record book at least once a week. Harden is averaging close to 40 points per during that stretch while taking over the distribution duties with CP3 still out.

Houston trailed by as many as 20 points on the road, but thanks to James Harden, the Rockets were able to come back.

That's in line with what Harden has been doing all season long.
