James Harden scores 40 (20 in 4th) & flirts with a triple double vs the Suns
Yesterday we released an exclusive video called “James Harden is the most feared lefty in the world! #ZOOMCITY” Above is Harden showing the Suns last night that he really is. The NBA’s leading scorer flirted with a 40 point triple double (12rebs/9asts) and continued making a strong case for MVP.
“He made all the tough plays for his team, like all great players do,” the Suns’ Eric Bledsoe said. “You know, he’s in the running for MVP and he should be up there.”
20 of Harden’s 40 came in the 4th quarter on 7 of 10 shooting.
“James played really, really well,” McHale said. “He’s been playing at a high level.”
The 12 boards was also a season-high for the Beard.
