Harden scored 39 points (13-29 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 9-11 FT) while adding 11 assists, seven rebounds and four steals across 40 minutes during Monday's 125-124 win over the Nuggets. Harden didn't enjoy his most efficient shooting performance, but his sheer volume of attempts, combined with his stroke from long range and his efficacy at the foul line, still resulted in another big scoring performance. He has been on an absolute tear as a scorer of late, with seven performances of at least 33 points in his last nine contests, and he has also contributed 10.9 dimes per game during that stretch.
Harden provided 40 points (11-23 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 15-17 FT), 10 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals over 37 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 win over the Nuggets. Harden suffered a hard fall in the third quarter, but nothing much seems to faze the MVP candidate. The perennial All-Star scored 18 of his points in the third quarter and recorded his second straight 40-point effort and fourth consecutive triple-double. As spectacular as Harden's season has been, March is shaping up as his best month, as he's now scored 33 points or more in six of nine contests.
Harden posted 41 points (12-21 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 13-14 FT), 14 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals over 40 minutes in Friday's 128-112 loss to the Pelicans. Harden was at it again, posting a massive stat line despite losing to the Pelicans on Friday. He also remained consistent in the turnover department, recording a game-high five turnovers in the game. There's little chance that the Rockets will rest Harden before the playoffs, as he averaged 38.5 minutes per game last March on the way to postseason play, He remains a safe start as one of the most prolific producers in the NBA.
Harden finished with 18 points (6-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT) with 13 assists, 12 rebounds and two steals over 31 minutes in Wednesday's 139-100 win against the Lakers. On a negative note Harden did turn the ball over nine times. Fantasy owners cannot complain too vehemently, however. While he wasn't terribly accurate from behind the arc, either, a triple-double is a triple-double. Again, no reason to complain.
Harden managed 38 points (13-28 FG, 4-14 3Pt, 8-12 FT), 11 assists, 10 rebounds, one steal, and one block across 40 minutes during Sunday's 117-112 victory over the Cavaliers. Performances like Sunday's are what have cemented Harden in MVP discussions throughout the season -- stuffing every facet of the stat sheet on his way to a triple-double against the reigning NBA-Champion Cavaliers. It feels odd to only call this simply an above-average outing for Harden, but that may speak to the absurdity of his season. He continues to be one of the best fantasy players ever, and should be owned in every format as the season nears its end.
