Harden just proved to the Thunder his worth.

James Harden against the Thunder2

 

Just like the picture shows, James Harden went into BEAST MODE when he played his former team – Oklahoma City Thunder.  Harden made OKC look silly for trading him to Houston last night. Here he is knocking down a half-court jumper at the buzzer as if it was a free throw.

Harden scored a career-high 46 points (seven 3-pointers) and Jeremy Lin added 29 as the Houston Rockets mounted a furious fourth-quarter comeback for a 122-119 victory.

James Harden against the Thunder3“I just told the guys on the court that we’ve got to do whatever it takes, we’ve got to get some stops together and make some shots,” Harden said. “It’s not going to be easy, they’re a very good team. But we got some stops at the right time and guys made good shots.”

It was Houston’s first win this season over the Thunder, who won both previous meetings, including a 30-point win in the last matchup. The loss extended Oklahoma City’s skid to three games.

When the Harden trade happened, I believed the Thunder would be able to recover with the addition of Kevin Martin; I thought Martin would slide right in and KD & Co. would just keep on moving, that is not the case.  Harden has shown me and the world that he was an intricate part of the Thunder and he is deserving of an “All-Star” status.  We will see how deep the loss of Harden will affect the Thunder when crunch time comes around in the NBA Playoffs.James Harden against the Thunder
