As today is March 18th, let’s take a look at the best three games that James Harden has had as a member of the Houston Rockets, which fell on March 18th.
The Houston Rockets will be out of commission for quite some time, as the league figures out the correct course of action following the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). It’s been eight days since the Rockets last played, which is surprising because it feels more like eight years.
Rockets CEO Tad Brown was on SportsTalk 790 on Wednesday morning, and explained the latest update the Rockets have received, as it pertains to a return in action.
#Rockets CEO Tad Brown on NBA season timeframe: "All that Commissioner has said, when we went on the hiatus, we knew it was going to be a minimum of 30 days….I don't think that we've got a time frame yet on when we're going to be announcing the rescheduling or the next steps."

In essence, the Rockets haven’t been given any updated timetable, which is discouraging but not surprising considering the seriousness of the coronavirus.
For many, this break in action has granted them the opportunity to go back in history and re-watch many of the Rockets’ past performances and/or dig up the archives. If we were to re-watch any of the Rockets’ games from the past eight seasons, we’d likely come across a game in which James Harden was unguardable, as that’s essentially been the case over the course of his tenure with the Rockets.
Although the Rockets have had different coaches and even different supporting casts during that span, Harden has been the one constant for the Rockets (and of course GM Daryl Morey). As today is March 18th, let’s take a look at Harden’s best three Rockets’ performances that fell on March 18th.
