James Harden can score the basketball.
He showed us what he could do last year with a higher usage rate, and this year he has continued the great play. In a marquee match up against the Warriors on Friday night, Harden and the Rockets came out with a huge win. Not only did they win the game, but they got the highlights as well.
Dwight Howard usually dunks, and Harden usually hits threes, but the roles were reversed on Friday:
James Harden drove down the lane with a few seconds left in the first quarter, and cocked back a nasty jam. The Rockets have looked like real contenders this season, and if they can get some good value for Omer Asik, then watch out.
The Rockets got the big win, and James Harden got Fansided’s Dunk of the Week. All players around the league are clamoring for this award each week, but sadly we can only hand it out to one player. Check back every Saturday to see the winner.
