  • Harden contributed 29 points (10-19 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals across 31 minutes in Saturday's 107-91 win over the Mavericks. Playing once again without Chris Paul, Harden led the team in scoring and minutes, doing most of his damage from beyond the arc with six threes. His performance Saturday reminded fans of the player who finished as the runner-up for MVP last year, as Harden still has the ability to take over a game when need be.

  • Harden posted 27 points (8-21 FG, 4-14 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 105-100 win over the Kings. Harden had trouble finding the net overall, but a trio of clutch threes at various junctures in the fourth quarter helped ensure the hard-fought victory. The perennial All-Star was playing without new backcourt mate Chris Paul (knee), but fill-in Eric Gordon helped take up the slack with a 25-point effort during which he actually outpaced Harden in shot attempts by two. Harden has kicked off the season in typically spectacular fashion, compiling 27 points in each of his first two contests and averaging 9.5 assists in that span as well. He'll look to continue his strong start in the Rockets' home opener versus the in-state rival Mavericks on Saturday night.

  • Harden posted 27 points (10-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes in Tuesday's 122-121 win over the Warriors. The addition of Chris Paul to Houston's backcourt doesn't seem to have an effect on Harden's usual modus operandi - posting gigantic stat lines. As he's done so often before, Harden carried the offense for the Rockets, and though he and Paul had a few moments of synergy offensively, it's going to take some time for the duo to figure out how to play together in a way that benefits the team. Some early glimmers were there before Paul's knee began to hamper him, but if the two of them can sustain some chemistry, the Western Conference should be put on notice. As always, Harden is a must-start whenever he takes the floor, and he has an especially juicy matchup against the Kings on Wednesday.

  • Harden scored 15 points (5-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding 11 assists, three rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes during Friday's preseason loss to the Spurs. It was a quiet performance by his standards, as Harden took on point-guard duties while Chris Paul rested his sore knee but couldn't find his shot from three-point range. It remains to be seen how the addition of Paul to the lineup will impact Harden's MVP-caliber numbers from last season, but the 28-year-old will still have his usual monster upside on nights when his brittle new teammate is forced to the sidelines due to his latest ailment.

  • Harden posted 18 points (2-13 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 14-15 FT), nine assists, five rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 101-89 preseason win over the Grizzlies. The Beard made up for a dreadful night from the field by visiting the charity stripe a preseason-high 15 times. Harden was still highly effective as a ball distributor, falling just one assist short of his fourth straight game with double-digit dimes. The perennial All-Star has had a rough preseason shooting-wise except for his most recent game prior to Wednesday's, when he sunk 13 of 21 attempts from the field. He's managed a 27.5 percent success rate (11-for-40) in the other three exhibitions, a flaw he'll look to correct in the Rockets' final tune-up before the regular season versus the Spurs on Friday.
