How is this for night and day. James Harden scored 23 points on 8 of 8 from the field and 5 of 5 from the free throw line in the first quarter against the 76ers on Monday. He followed that career-high quarter up with a donut (0-5 from the field) in the second quarter!
The league leader in assists also failed to reach double-digit assists for the first time in November, finishing with 9 dimes to go with 33 points in just 33 minutes of the 27 point victory.
And with those 33 points and 9 assists, he became the first player in NBA history with 300+ points and 120 + assists through the team’s first 10 games of a season.
