James Harden Flirts With Triple-Double, Pisses Off Jarret Jack (Who Has A Really Strong Arm)
Didn’t James Harden see that full court shot attempt by Jarret Jack at the end of the half? Jack has such a strong arm, his shot went into the 7th row behind the basket.
Besides pissing off Jack, Harden pleased Rockets fans by flirting with a triple-double (36/11/9) and knocking down 7 threes during the CP3-less Rockets 117-95 win over the Porzing-less Knicks. He did turn the ball over 7 times (same amount as the entire Knicks starting lineup) but turnovers only hurt you when you are playing a team that can capitalize off them.
Besides saving Jack from possibly getting into a scuffle with Harden, former Rocket and your favorite player’s favorite player, Michael Beasley, had a nice night with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go with 4 boards and 3 steals.
Here’s full highlights of The Beard followed by that quarterback tryout by Jack.
