Houston Rockets superstar James Harden went off again on Tuesday, dropping 42 points in a 115-111 win over the Blazers.
Afterwards, head coach Mike D’Antoni called The Beard “the best offensive player” he has ever seen, via Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune:
Mike D’Antoni on James Harden: “He’s the best offensive player I’ve ever seen. The way he can pass, see the floor, get fouls, layups, floaters, maybe a lob, maybe out to the corner — he has so many weapons. Now he’s shooting that step-back 3. It’s impossible to guard him.”
