James Harden is bringing home yet ANOTHER Player of the Week award.

For the fifth time this season, count it, FIFTH time, James Harden is your Western Conference Player of the Week.

The Beard earned the award after averaging 33 points per game to go along with 6.8 assists and 5.3 rebounds a night. He also led the Rockets to a perfect 4-0 record, extending the winning streak to 8 games.

As we say everytime Harden gets this award, this just adds to the MVP candidacy he has consistently shown this season. Maybe this is the year for the Beard.

Harden is off to a hot start this month, that’s for sure.

Conference Player of the Month?

James Harden has started off the first two weeks of February with back-to-back Player of the Week awards. He is in the driver’s seat for the Player of the Month, his second of the season.

Should he continue his spectacular month, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be given that award. His best game this month was one of the best in NBA history: the first ever 60-point triple-double. What could the league possibly want that could be better than that?

The schedule for the Rockets is also not too bad to finish the month. The two games against Minnesota will be interesting, but the Rockets should be able to handle them. It will also be interesting to see Harden play against the Clippers after he entered their locker room about a month ago.
