James Harden hit a game-winning buzzer-beater against the Suns during Friday's 113-111 victory, finishing with 33 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.
Just when you thought Harden was going to be the story of the night for a sick crossover to break P.J. Tucker's ankles before he buried a mid-range jumper, Klay Thompson happened. Anyway, Harden is still ridiculous on non-Klay terms over his last three, averaging 37.0 points, 3.7 boards, 7.7 assists, 3.0 steals and 4.3 treys on 51.9 percent from the field. Sadly, Harden won't get to play against Klay again this regular season. That's none of Klay's business, though. Jan 24 - 1:42 AM

James Harden (knee) and Dwight Howard (knee) will start against the Suns on Friday.

They were both probable and there was little doubt that these guys would miss the big road game. The Rockets didn't have Howard in their last matchup against the Suns, too. Harden could put up huge numbers tonight.
Jan 23 - 8:49 PM

James Harden (left knee contusion) is listed as probable for Friday's game in Phoenix.

He scored 33 points in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Golden State and we're guessing he'll be fine, but owners should stay tuned for pre-game updates. Harden hasn't missed a game all season and should have extra motivation after recently being snubbed as a starter for the All-Star game.
Jan 23 - 10:59 AM

James Harden hit 8-of-18 shots, three 3-pointers and 14-of-16 free throws on Wednesday, finishing with 33 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block.

He's still in the MVP discussion, but the Rockets are going to have to improve their record for him to win it. They were crushed by the Warriors tonight, despite making a late comeback in garbage time.
Jan 22 - 1:35 AM

James Harden scored a season-high 45 points in the Rockets' 110-98 win over the Pacers on Monday, hitting 12-of-18 shots (7-of-12 3PTs, 14-of-15 FTs) with one rebound, seven assists, four steals and one block.

Monster. Harden is fantasy's No. 1 producer in 8-cat leagues and No. 3 in 9-cat formats when measuring on a per-game basis. His consistency and durability come with way less heartburn than some of his fellow elite, too. Dwight Howard went for 14 and 17 with one block in the win.
Jan 19 - 11:05 PM

James Harden didn't show up against the Warriors on Saturday, making 4-of-15 from the field for 12 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and no 3-pointers.

Sometimes when you win, you actually lose, and sometimes when you lose, you actually win. Not this time, though. Harden was a big letdown on the main stage tonight, but he'll bounce back on Monday against the Pacers.
Jan 18 - 12:20 AM

James Harden was in his usual MVP form against the Thunder during a 112-101 win on Thursday, scoring 31 points with nine rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and six 3-pointers.

He made 9-of-15 from the field tonight and has made at least 60 percent from the field in each of his last three games for one of the most ridiculous three-game efficient stretches on the year. In fact, that's good for an 80.4 true shooting percentage thanks to making 68.4 percent of his shots at the rim (43.2 percent of his shot total). Translation of advanced stats: Harden is awesome.
Jan 15 - 11:29 PM

James Harden hit 10-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 26 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, five steals and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Magic.

We're surprised the Magic were able to win this game considering how well Harden, Trevor Ariza and Dwight Howard played, but it is what it is. Harden has cooled off a bit, but is still filling it up in most categories, and remains one of the league's elite players.
Jan 14 - 9:56 PM

James Harden had one of his most efficient games of the season on Monday during a 113-99 win over the Nets, making 9-of-13 from the field and all eight free throws for 30 points with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

It's just too easy for him with a sterling true shooting percentage of 90.8 tonight. This season, there have been a dozen 30-point games with less than 15 FGAs. James Harden has three of them and nobody else has more than one. He's not going to slow down.
Jan 12 - 11:00 PM

James Harden scored 30 points on 8-of-14 shooting in Saturday's win vs. the Jazz, adding five assists, three boards, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He is without a doubt a viable MVP candidate this season and it's nice to see how far he has come on defense. As long as he stays healthy, there's no reason to think that he will be slowing down anytime soon.
Jan 10 - 11:38 PM

James Harden scored 25 points with four rebounds, nine assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in just 31 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

Too easy. Harden has been the No. 1 player in nine-category fantasy leagues over the past month and he's doing this as one of the worst turnover guys in the NBA. His defense is improved and he's in the mix for MVP. Plus, he was the top player after the break last season, so there could be bigger things on the way.
Jan 8 - 11:33 PM

James Harden had 21 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 6-of-18 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

He's gone four straight games without scoring 30 points or more, which is his longest streak since he did the same thing in early November. That should mean he's due for a monster game his next time out, but he'll have to shoot it better than he has been lately. He's hit just 27 of his last 70 shots during the slump.
Jan 7 - 10:56 PM

James Harden did James Harden things against the Hornets on Wednesday when he hit 12-of-19 shots, eight 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws on his way to 36 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block.

OK, so maybe he could have gotten to the line a few more times, but this is one of the most sparkling fantasy lines you will see from any player this season. Happy New Year!

James Harden just missed a massive triple-double in Friday's overtime win over the Grizzlies, scoring 32 points on 10-of-17 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 10-of-11 FTs) with eight rebounds, 10 assists and three blocks.

Harden pulls into a dead heat with Anthony Davis for the No. 1 rank in 8-cat leagues with the effort, though in 9-cat league that title is still held by Davis and it's not close.

James Harden dominated the Blazers on Monday during a 110-95 win, scoring 44 points with three rebounds, seven assists, five steals and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

On top of all that, he had just one turnover. Harden had 31 points, five dimes and five steals at halftime and the Blazers couldn't do anything to stop him. In his last five games with Dwight Howard in the lineup, Harden averaged 29.6 points, 6.0 boards, 9.2 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.2 triples. He's in the hunt for MVP.
