The ATL crowd was chanting overrated at Jeremy Lin who put up a real nice line of 21/10/7. A lot of NBA fans were chanting overrated after Harden’s amazing debut with the Rockets saying he won’t put up another game like that this season. Well, he didn’t get 12 assists but he scored an additional 7 points on his way to a career high 45 against the Hawks and gave the Rockets their 2nd win of the season and 2 wins is something Thunder, Heat and Lakers fans can’t say they have right now.
Harden has now scored as many points in 2 games with the Rockets as he did in his last 7 games with the Thunder and scored the most points in NBA history by a non rookie for a new team. Harden is also only behind Wilt and Michael Jordan for most points scored after two games to start a season.
Watch 9 mins of Harden that will give the biggest Rocket fan a Har…I won’t say it.
