James Harden has been on an absolute tear to start the season and has the Houston Rockets sitting at 10-3 after 13 games.
In the midst of a seven-game winning streak, the Houston Rockets are proving to be a major force in the NBA. While the pairing of superstars James Harden and Russell Westbrook was heavily questioned throughout the offseason, the early answer appears to be that the duo can make things work.
Russell Westbrook is averaging 21 points, 8 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game and has been able to rest on occasion without Houston missing a beat. His ability to push the ball in any situation has added a new dimension to what was already a dynamic offense.
James Harden, meanwhile, is putting up even more insane numbers to start the 2019-20 campaign. After his 49-point performance in the Rockets’ 125-105 throttling of the Minnesota Timberwolves, The Beard is now averaging 39.5 points per game to go along with 7.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds.
