Houston Rockets: James Harden Impresses in Drew League Game

SAN ANTONIO, TX - MAY 01: James Harden
SAN ANTONIO, TX - MAY 01: James Harden

The Beard is enjoying his annual Drew League appearance this year.

James Harden had his 2017 Drew League debut last night. He impressed as he almost always does, even when he did not give 100%. He still finished with 25 points and 6 rebounds in a fairly low scoring game overall.

The Beard teamed up with Bobby Brown on LAUNFD squad and they won 67-64. James had some great moves on offense and played some decent defense, even blocking a 3 at the end of the game.

James Harden is always a hit when he plays in the Drew League. Last summer, he dropped 42 points in a playoff game while being heckled by a guy on the sideline. He always shows out in the league and we’ll have to see what else he has in store this year.

Take a look at the highlights from the game last night, posted by Ball is Life:

CP3 There to Support

Chris Paul also showed up to the game to support James Harden and Bobby Brown. They have been hanging out quite a bit this summer by the looks of it, from Summer League games to the Kendrick Lamar/Travis Scott concert and now the Drew League game.

It is certainly cool to see the off-the-court relationship between Harden and Paul growing. That can only create better chemistry for the Rockets as they try to contend next season.

What does Harden have as an encore for next week’s game? Hopefully, his main focus is staying healthy and then getting buckets. We’ll update you here after the next time James Harden plays a Drew League game!
