• James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden finished with 33 points (11-of-23 FG, 7-of-7 FT), 9 rebounds, 9 assists and four triples in 38 minutes as the Rockets lost Game 3 vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

    The Lakers seem to be doubling Harden whenever he touches the ball so the fact that he even scored 33 on semi-efficient shooting shows how good he is. He nearly double-doubled tonight, but just wasn't able to will the Rockets to a win although his partner in crime, Russell Westbrook, had a much better game tonight than he did in Game 2. Coach Mike D'Antoni needs to figure out a way to counter the Lakers defense heading into what will be a must-win Game 4 on Thursday.
