Harden posted 37 points (11-19 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 10-14 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 win over the Timberwolves.
Harden shot just 32.5 percent from the field during the Rockets' four-game losing streak, but he bounced back admirably here and carried his team to a win. The star shooting guard remains productive regardless of his team's struggles, however, and he should continue to be one of the league's main scoring threats regardless of what happens with Houston. For what is worth, he has reached the 30-point plateau thrice during his last five games.
Harden tallied 23 points (6-19 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 8-10 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in Sunday's loss to the Magic.
Harden went minus-15 across 32 minutes of action as Houston dropped its fourth straight game. During this skid, Harden has averaged 26.0 points per game, but he's shot just 32.5 percent from the field, including 19 percent from three. That's a far cry from his season-long averages of 34.3 points per game on 43.3 percent shooting (and 35 percent from downtown).
Harden notched 16 points (4-17 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 8-11 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 loss to the Clippers.
This was Harden's fourth lowest-scoring game of the 2019-20 season, as he looked uncomfortable all game long and missed his eight attempts from three-point range, making it just the second time in the entire season that he hasn't made at least one shot from beyond the arc. The star shooting guard will try to bounce back Saturday at Charlotte.
Harden went for 35 points (8-22 FG, 3-13 3Pt, 16-16 FT), eight assists, four steals and two rebounds in 39 minutes during Monday's 125-123 loss at New York.
Harden continues to put up one of the most impressive scoring campaigns in NBA history -- he has scored 30 or more points in four of his last five, and he has achieved that feat nine times in his last 14 games since a two-game absence in late January. The efficiency has been lacking a bit during that stretch -- he's shooting 43.8 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from deep -- but that shouldn't matter much as long as Harden continues to score at this stellar rate.
Harden scored 21 points (7-24 FG, 4-17 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding eight assists, four rebounds and three steals in Saturday's 111-110 win over the Celtics.
Harden demonstrated most of his inconsistency in the fourth quarter, missing all six of his three-point shots that allowed Boston to send the match into overtime. However, the former MVP redeemed himself with both a critical steal and free throws in the last minute to give Houston the 111-110 lead and eventual win. Harden finished February averaging 31.9 points, 7.9 assists and 6.5 rebounds through 11 games.

Harden barely got out of second gear Wednesday as the Rockets cruised to victory. He has now scored at least 30 points in three straight games, shooting in excess of 50 percent in all three. The Rockets are on a five-game winning streak and the small-ball era has certainly worked well thus far. Harden is about as consistent as they come and should continue to flirt with the number one ranking the rest of the way.
Harden went for 37 points (14-25 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 5-9 FT), nine assists, six rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 123-112 win over the Knicks.
Harden has topped the 30-point mark in six out of nine games this month, but that shouldn't be surprising considering he can easily score 30 points per game without needing an extra effort. Harden is enjoying another stellar month in February, as he is averaging 33.3 points in 35.9 minutes per game during nine contests this month. He has also distributed the ball nicely of late, racking up seven or more assists in five straight games.
Harden finished with 38 points (13-23 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 6-9 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block across 37 minutes Saturday in the Rockets' 120-110 win over the Jazz.
Harden seems to have moved well past his January slump, reasserting himself as the clear No. 1 fantasy player in both points and categorical leagues. Over eight February outings, Harden is averaging 32.9 points (on 46.3 percent shooting from the floor) to go with 8.4 dimes, 6.8 rebounds, 4.4 three-pointers, 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks in 36.1 minutes.
Harden generated 29 points (6-16 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 14-15 FT), 10 assists, three steals and two blocked shots across 30 minutes in Thursday's 135-105 win over the Warriors.
Although Harden was off the mark from beyond the arc, he was a champ from the charity stripe. Harden knows how to draw a foul, and he nailed 14 of his 15 free-throw chances. While Houston isn't known for its defense, Harden played the thief with three steals and also swatted down two shots.
Harden accumulated 42 points (9-19 FG, 7-16 3Pt, 17-18 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block across 39 minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 win over the Celtics.
Harden broke out of a mini-slump in a big way Wednesday, as he had averaged just 24.7 points across his three prior games. His 42 points on just 19 shots marked one of the most efficient games of his career, as he only has seven other performances with at least 40 points on fewer than 20 field-goal attempts. Since his rookie season, he leads the NBA in such games, while Kevin Durant (5), Stephen Curry (3) and LeBron James (3) are the only other players with at least three.
Harden scored 28 points (11-23 FG, 2-13 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 10 assists, 10 rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 39 minutes during the Rockets' 114-113 loss to the Jazz on Sunday.
It was an excellent night from Harden, with the struggles from distance representing the only blemish on his stat line. Nonetheless, the poor three-point shooting made the difference in the game, and illustrated that Harden was settling for shots at points throughout the contest. Harden's ability to stuff the box score at this level on nights when his three-point shot isn't falling is still a prime example of why he's the No. 1 fantasy option in nearly every format.
Harden finished with 32 points (9-19 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 9-10 FT), two boards, five assists, one block and one steal in 30 minutes of a 127-91 loss to the Suns on Friday.
Harden lead his team in scoring despite sitting out the fourth quarter due to his team's large deficit. Harden bounced back from a tough shooting game the night before against the Lakers to make half of his shots from deep. He'll have tomorrow off before facing the Jazz on Sunday.
Harden totaled 14 points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 35 minutes in Thursday's 121-111 win over the Lakers.
A one-game sample size is not enough to proclaim the Rockets' small-ball experiment a smashing success, but a win over the best team in the Western Conference is certainly a confidence booster, especially when you consider Harden's struggles during the game. It's also too soon to tell how this change affects Harden. The All-Star's prolific output isn't in jeopardy, but the arrival of Robert Covington represents a quality talent at the wing that could impact Harden's ceiling on a nightly basis. In the short term, it appears that the new system favors Russell Westbrook over Harden, but we'll know more Friday when the former rests on a back-to-back. Harden's line will help us determine if the boost is specific to the point guard position.
Harden exploded for 40 points (11-26 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 14-15 FT), 12 assists, nine rebounds, three steals and one block in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 125-110 win over the Hornets.

Harden got hot early and never cooled off, draining step-back after step-back while delivering a complete stat line. He even made some strong defensive stands, swatting at least two blocks for the third time in the last four games. Despite his recent struggles, it goes without saying that Harden remains one of the very best options across all fantasy formats.

After sitting out two games with a bruised thigh, Harden returned with a subpar effort by his standards the last time out, but he was much sharper in this one. The 30-year-old logged a season high in rebounds and came one shy of his season mark for steals while making as many threes as he had all month. He'll look to keep rolling at home Sunday against the Pelicans.
Harden (thigh) notched 18 points (5-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 125-112 loss at Portland.
Harden returned from a brief two-game absence and he looked rusty, making just 28 percent of his shots while committing six turnovers. Harden has scored under 20 points in back-to-back games for the first time this season, but he should continue seeing a heavy workload. He'll look to bounce back Friday at home against the Mavericks.
