Whereas Harden finshed with 29 factors, 10 rebounds and eight assists within the Rockets’ 122-90 victory over the Utah Jazz, Houston’s supporting forged was simply as spectacular.
In case you’re retaining monitor at residence, every Rockets starter scored a minimum of 10 factors within the victory.

Showing on a current episode of the Scoop B Radio Podcast, FS1’s Chris Broussard informed me that he believes that Harden is chasing Dwyane Wade on the NBA’s all-time NBA taking pictures guard record. Broussard says, Harden may very well do it, too!
Take a look at our Q&A by way of the Scoop B Radio Podcast under:
Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson: When you think about the highest three guards within the NBA, do you embrace James Harden and Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook-
Chris Broussard: The highest three guards?
Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson: Properly the highest 5 guards within the NBA, you embrace Harden.
Chris Broussard: Oh, how may you not? I imply, yeah, that dude goes to be an MVP once more, barring damage or some critical dropoff from him or the group. So he must be, I imply, he’s a high 5 participant. So yeah, he’s positively, I imply, yeah, is he a real level guard? No, however I have a look at him extra as a guard, and I believe, while you have a look at historic rankings, I’d are inclined to put him out within the two guard rankings, the place I believe you possibly can argue, I imply, he may be transferring forward of Dwyane Wade, clearly Wade received the championship again with Shaq in Miami, so you realize, lots of people would give him the sting over Harden. I believe Wade is the fourth finest taking pictures guard of all time behind Jordan, Kobe, and Jerry West, in that order, however I believe Harden is correct there, difficult him. If Harden can carry out properly within the playoffs, then-
Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson: You had been saying that you just rank Dwyane Wade because the fourth finest taking pictures guard of all time behind Jordan, Kobe, and Jerry West?
Chris Broussard: Sure. Sure.
Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson: And also you stated Harden shall be up there?
Chris Broussard: Harden’s chasing Wade, Harden’s proper there on Wade’s tail, he’s gotta carry out at his finest within the postseason and in a very powerful postseason video games, and positively, you realize, you’d prefer to see him win a championship. If he does that, he would move Wade, however definitely, if he did it as a pacesetter of the group and the principle man and it wasn’t a brilliant group, however yeah, I’d in all probability rank him within the two guard rankings, when it’s all stated and performed.
