Harden posted 34 points (10-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 10-10 FT), five assists, four rebounds and three steals across 34 minutes in Saturday's 132-112 win over the Kings. Harden is at the top of his game, averaging 26.6 points, 6.3 assists and 4.9 rebounds since his three-game absence earlier in the month. The Rockets are now one game over .500 and appear to be well on their way to righting the ship after a rocky start. Harden continues to be a must-start in all formats.
Harden collected 22 points (7-16 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block across 37 minutes in Tuesday's 109-99 win over the Nuggets. Harden followed up a 40-point performance with his third double-double of the season Tuesday night. While his three-point shooting was atrocious, that's just icing on the cake for his point total when he makes eight field goals a game and adds seven hits from the charity stripe.
Harden exploded for 40 points (9-20 FG, 8-18 3Pt, 14-15 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, one steal, and one block in 38 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 win over the Pacers. Harden finished with a season high scoring total while falling one trey shy of matching his career high in made threes. Though he did commit nine turnovers, it was a showing that coach Mike D'Antoni, as well as fantasy owners, should thoroughly appreciate, as he scored all but two of his points from beyond the arc or the charity stripe and came very close to recording a triple-double. Tuesday's road matchup against the league's top defensive team (Nuggets) in the early going will be a good chance for Harden to make a statement, as will Thursday's tilt against the Warriors.
Harden managed 25 points (7-27 FG, 1-13 3Pt, 10-13 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 38 minutes during Saturday's 96-89 loss to the Spurs. Harden shot poorly Saturday, connecting on just 7-of-27 shots including an abysmal 1-of-13 from the three-point line. The Rockets are really struggling and there is some talk Carmelo Anthony (illness) could be a contributing factor, which could result in a move from the front office. Harden is still likely to remain a top-five fantasy option moving forward but the state of the team remains questionable at best with a potential change on the horizon.
Harden scored 19 points (7-19 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 1-3 FT) and added eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in 37 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Thunder. Harden put up his usual stat-line although he shot the ball poorly from all levels in a bad loss to the Thunder. The Rockets slow start hasn't affect Harden's statistical output and he is on pace for another outstanding season. Harden appears to be fully recovered from the hamstring issue that limited earlier in the year and is producing 27.8 points, 8.2 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 4.2 threes and 2.5 steals per game on the year.
