Harden had 40 points (12-19 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 11-11 FT), five rebound, five assists, three steals, and one block in 41 minutes during the Rockets' 102-93 loss versus the Grizzlies on Wednesday. Harden committed four turnovers, but it's hard for fantasy owners not to be thankful when he scores 40 points on only 19 field goal attempts. Expect Harden to continue to do all he can to help lead his Rockets back into the playoff picture after a sluggish 5-10 start to the year.
Harden amassed 24 points (8-20 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 assists, seven rebounds, two blocks and three steals over 38 minutes in Saturday's 107-102 loss to the Knicks. Harden posted his fourth double-double of the season and once again led the Rockets in scoring. The perennial All-Star was busy across the stat sheet Saturday, handing out 10 dimes and enjoying another productive night on the glass. He also took a season-low four shots from beyond the arc, but did post his best percentage of the season from long range (75 percent). Notably, Harden now has 22 boards and 26 assists over his last three contests while averaging 30.3 points over that span, making him even more valuable than usual to fantasy owners.
Harden exploded for a season-high 45 points (11-29 FG, 4-15 3Pt, 19-20 FT) to go with 11 assists, eight rebounds, five steals, and one block in 47 minutes Wednesday against the Blazers. Harden was coming off a season-low 16-point performance Monday, and he definitely felt his stroke, especially from the free-throw line. He's now notched double-digits in free-throw attempts eight times out of ten games in the month of November, and it doesn't appear like he's going to slow down anytime soon.
Harden matched his season low with 16 points (4-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with three assists over 30 minutes in Monday's 111-95 loss to the Celtics. Boston pulled away in the third quarter and Harden didn't get the ball enough to be effective, taking a season-low 10 field goal attempts. The Rockets leading scorer wasn't able to get to the line, which is what makes him such an effective point producer. The lone bright spot was that Harden had his best shooting performance from beyond the arc.
Harden scored a game-high 25 points (5-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 14-14 FT) with 10 assists, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in 42 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Mavericks. Another poor shooting night was salvaged at the charity stripe, and Harden has now attempted double-digit free throws in seven of eight November games while averaging 30.8 points on 39.7 percent field goal shooting, 6.5 boards, 6.3 assists, 2.5 threes and 1.9 steals over that stretch.
