As expected, James Harden is thriving under Rockets new head coach Mike D’Antoni. Houston currently sits at 3-2 and Harden is averaging 31.8 points, 12.4 assists and 7.0 boards per game.
Last night, Harden brought the show to the Garden as the Rockets dropped the Knicks 118-99. The Beard continued his torrid start with 30 and 15, becoming the first player since Magic Johnson in 1986 to drop 15 dimes in consecutive games.
“He threw some passes that were ridiculous,” D’Antoni told ESPN after the game. “He hit some timely shots at the end of quarters. He played really well.”
