James Harden had it cooking against the Pacers on Monday night. The MVP candidate made a living at the stripe – hitting 21 of 22 free throws – and scored 44 points in total to go with a game-high 7 assists.
“He was just solid. He’s a hell of a player,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. “We don’t have our record if James isn’t playing at an MVP level, which he’s doing. I say it every year, two or three guys play at extraordinary levels, and he’s one of them right now.”
“It’s just a matter of me being crafty, getting there, making plays and just doing what I do every single night,” said Harden. “As long as I’m aggressive and in attack mode, good things are going to happen.”
You mean crafty like this spin move and stepback jumper on George Hill?
Yes good things happen when Harden is in attack mode.
