Another night, another huge game for James Harden. In last night’s 106-100 loss to the Spurs, Harden as once again magnificent as he dropped 25 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists for his second straight triple-double against San Antonio.
The Rockets couldn’t overcome the return of Tony Parker, who was playing for the first time in three games after sitting out with knee soreness. He scored a season-high 16 points in 27 minutes, much to the delight of his teammates.
“He’s a great point guard, very smart, knows where guys’ spots are on the floor, and he’s been here before,” Kawhi Leonard told ESPN. “He knows what (Gregg Popovich) expects, and if one of us gets out of line or if we’re doing well, he tells us. He just makes us better.”
