Harden trails Russell Westbrook's 19 triple-doubles, but he leads the league with 35 double-doubles. Any way you slice it, he's been amazing in both reality and fantasy. Jan 15 - 9:08 PM

James Harden scored 27 points in a 110-105 home loss to the Grizzlies on Friday, adding three rebounds, nine assists and two 3-pointers.

Coach Mike D'Antoni was a little late on putting Harden back in during this game, which may have been a factor in the loss. The Rockets are now on their first losing streak of the season, but you can bet they'll be snapping out of it in Brooklyn on Sunday.
Jan 14 - 1:29 AM

James Harden racked up 33 points, 12 assists and six rebounds in a losing effort vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, making 10-of-23 field goals and 11-of-13 free throws.

Harden has been ridiculous lately with five triple-doubles in his last seven games, and tonight was no exception -- in addition to the points, boards and assists, he added two blocks, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers. Incredibly, this was Houston's first loss in the second of back-to-back games all season, dropping them to 9-1 in such situations.
Jan 12 - 12:01 AM

James Harden kept it going on Tuesday with 40 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes of Tuesday's 121-114 win over the Hornets.

He hit 11-of-24 shots and 11-of-14 free throws, and only had four turnovers tonight. Harden now has 11 triple-doubles on the season, has triple-doubled in back-to-back games, and has also done so in three of his last five games. Over that stretch, he's averaging a staggering 28.6 points, 10.0 rebounds, 10.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 3.0 3-pointers and is shooting 39 percent. He's also averaging 6.4 turnovers, but as long as the triple-doubles and massive stat lines are coming, owners will just have to live with some poor shooting and a ton of TOs.
Jan 10 - 11:16 PM

James Harden secured his 10th triple-double of the season on Sunday, pouring in 40 points with 10 rebounds, 11 assists and 10 turnovers in an impressive win at Toronto.

Harden was quiet to begin the game but that has never dissuaded him, and he ultimately made 13-of-26 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs with four 3-pointers, two steals and two blocks. His huge night helped Houston extend their win streak to eight games, and Harden has now recorded a double-double in 16 straight games, the longest streak in the NBA in five seasons. He's an MVP front-runner and it's hard to argue against him as the No. 1 fantasy option.
Jan 8 - 9:03 PM

James Harden scored 14 points on 5-of-15 from the field in a 100-93 win over the Magic on Friday, adding seven rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

The Rockets were on a road back-to-back, made just 15-of-49 from deep and still got the win tonight. Harden missed all eight attempts from deep any may have turned in one of his worst games, so this was a big win for the Rockets. Harden vs. Kyle Lowry should be awesome on Sunday.
Jan 6 - 9:38 PM

James Harden hit 6-of-16 shots, two 3-pointers and 12-of-14 free throws for 26 points, eight rebounds, 12 assists, a steal, a block and six turnovers in Thursday's tough 118-116 win over the Thunder.

After scoring between 53 and 32 points in four straight games, Harden has scored 26 and 23 in his last two games, hitting just 12-of-40 shots in the process. But he's healthy, looks good on the court and as soon as some of his 3-pointers start dropping, his next monster line is just around the corner. He's hit just 4-of-18 3-pointers over his last two games, but the fact he missed his fourth straight triple-double by just two rebounds tonight tells you everything you need to know. Stud.
Jan 5 - 11:06 PM

James Harden hit just 6-of-24 shots, 2-of-11 3-pointers and 9-of-10 free throws on his way to 23 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and six turnovers in Monday's 101-91 win over the Wizards.

That makes nine triple-doubles for Harden, who was coming off that ridiculous 53 points, 16 rebounds, 17 assists and nine 3-pointers against the Knicks on Saturday. While he's not posting the volume of triple-doubles that Westbrook is, Harden is just as valuable, and just as fun to own this season.
Jan 2 - 11:25 PM

James Harden ended 2016 with the stat line of the year in a 129-122 win over the Knicks on Saturday, scoring a career-high 53 points with 16 rebounds, 17 assists and nine 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He is the first player in NBA history to post a 50-15-15 line and his 53 points tie Wilt Chamberlain for the most points in a triple-double. Of his 17 assists, he assisted on eight 3-pointers, so he scored or assisted on 95 points today -- the Mavs average 95.1 points per game this season as a whole squad. Harden really is a one-man wrecking crew.

James Harden posted his seventh triple-double of the season during a 140-116 win over the Clippers on Friday, scoring 30 points with 13 rebounds, 10 assists, five steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

The efficiency was there, making 10-of-15 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line. The Rockets getting to 140 in regulation pushed them up to 114.5 points per game on the year, trailing only the Warriors. They were consistently effective with at least 32 points in each quarter with 37 in both the first and second with their continued use of Harden in PNR sets. Harden isn't averaging a triple-double, but he's in the neighborhood with season averages of 27.8 points, 7.9 boards and a league-leading 11.8 assists.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 12:00:00 AM

James Harden hit 9-of-16 shots, 4-of-7 3-pointers and 12-of-12 free throws for 34 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and six turnovers in Tuesday's easy 123-107 win over the Mavericks.

Harden only played 30 minutes in the blowout win and simply crushed, as usual. He had 32 points and 12 assist on Monday and back-to-backs are no problem for Harden, who is averaging 28 points, 6.4 rebounds, 12.2 assist and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games. He's hit at least 50 percent of his field goals in each of his last two games, after going five straight games without doing so.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 12:05:00 AM

James Harden hit 9-of-18 shots, 2-of-9 3-pointers and 12-of-15 free throws for 32 points, five rebounds, 12 assists and seven turnovers in Monday's easy 131-115 win over the Suns.

Just another day at the office for Harden. He scored just 16 points on Friday, but had 17 assists, and is averaging a ridiculous 26.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 12.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.6 3-pointers over his last five, while hitting 43 percent of his shots.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 12:32:00 AM

James Harden scored 16 points in a 115-109 loss to the Grizzlies on Friday with seven rebounds, 17 assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and nine turnovers.

Clearly, Harden isn't being affected too much with the loss of Clint Capela (leg). While the scoring numbers weren't there, it's important to remember the Grizzlies are the best defense in the NBA. Harden was more of a scorer without Capela next to him, but so far he has 15.5 assists per game in the last two without his big man. With the Rockets losing two of their last three, Harden's surge for MVP may have lost some steam. Oh and that Russell Westbrook guy.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 11:38:00 PM

James Harden scored 27 points against the Suns during a 125-111 win on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, 14 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

The Rockets will start a new winning streak with this win. They now have a whopping five games with at least 18 treys, which matches the rest of the league -- that's pretty impressive considering the Warriors exist. Harden was able to keep pace with Russell Westbrook for the league lead in double-doubles with only centers rounding out the top eight. He gets a matchup against the league's toughest defense with a trip to the FedEx Forum on Friday night.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 01:05:00 AM

James Harden scored 31 points during a tough 102-100 home loss to the Spurs on Tuesday to snap a 10-game winning streak, scoring 31 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer.

The Rockets could not hit their 3-pointers tonight with only six makes on 38 attempts. Their 38 percent from the field was the worst of the season and only having six makes is the lowest for any team ever with at least 38 attempts. Harden's pick-and-roll ball handler buckets had him tied for first in the NBA coming into tonight (Kemba Walker), so he may have to adjust to not having Clint Capela (leg) as his primary screener. Of course, he's been outstanding as a passer all season and is one of the best scorers in the NBA. He's also posted a higher usage rate without Capela this season. Harden will beast regardless.
