Harden was averaging just 18 points against the Clippers in his last 8 games but broke out for 34 points to go with 7 boards and 7 dimes in a very testy 2 point win on Sunday.
One of those testy moments came in the 2nd quarter when Matt Barnes (a great high school football player) tackled Harden on a drive.
“Things like that are fun” said Harden about Barnes throwing him down tot he ground. “We got boosted off that. We just turned it up.”
The Rockets got a boost and Barnes got a flagrant foul 1.
