James Harden 25pts, 9asts & 1 crossover on Prigioni in 3 quarters
20+ points, almost 10 assists, a crossover highlight, a dunk highlight, a few 3-pointers, a few steals: check, check, check, check….
James Harden was able to put up some big numbers and crack the nightly highly recaps in just 3 quarters of action in a 24 point win against the Knicks last night. The game was so easy that Harden and his teammates had to convince themselves the game would be a challenge.
“We’re kind of looking at the bigger picture. Bigger picture is us playing at a high level, all on the same page. No matter what team we’re playing against, we’ve got to play great,” Harden said. “So tonight was a challenge for us. The Knicks aren’t doing so well but our mindset was to come in here and play Rockets basketball.”
The Rockets have beat the Knicks 11 straight times.
