We’ve been hearing people in sports media say that James Harden deserves the MVP lately. After tonight’s game, that talk is going to become a lot more prominent. Not only because the Houston Rockets beat the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena, but in the fashion that The Beard did it in.
In overtime over Draymond Green with one second remaining to seal the game.
Not only that, but his triple double against Dub Nation makes it the second this week and his stat sheet was just ridiculous. 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds.
Clint Capela had 29 points and 21 rebounds in the win for the Rockets as well.
On the other side of the ball, Steph Curry contributed 35 points for the Warriors, while both Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant had 26 points of their own. But it wasn’t enough.
Should we put some respek on Houston’s name or is Golden State crumbling?
