James Harden Knocks Down Game Winning 3-Pointer over Warriors


But a large reason for that has been the play of a few big names, one of which is Houston Rockets star James Harden.

Klay Thompson expressed disappointment after squandering a 20-point lead to the Houston Rockets, who managed to take the game to overtime and win it in spectacular fashion with a James Harden 3-pointer that left only one second in the clock.

"You could argue for him as the best offensive player of all time", Morey told ESPN following Houston's win over their Western Conference rivals. He's averaging more points per game and he's hovering around the same number of assists, and lately he's looked completely impossible to stop even with Chris Paul injured.

Flu activity is increasing in New York City, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC ). Nearly all flu cases have been influenza A, and of those they were able to test in detail, most were the H1N1 virus subtype.

After a rocky start to the season, the Rockets' record now sits at 22-15.

He's taken his game to another level since mid-November, though, averaging almost 37 points, nine assists and six rebounds per game in that time.

Harden has scored 40-plus points seven times in the last month. James is on a new team this season, so the group is working out the kinks, but he's still managed to remain a top candidate.

India leads the series 2-1 and would look to either hammer in the final nail in the Aussie coffin or maintain the margin. The Delhi- born cricketer played some glittering knocks which mostly helped India emerge on top.

Asked if he felt too much energy was spent on critiquing that aspect of his play, Harden said: "Exactly". He's pulled down double-digit boards in two of the past four games and handed out 6-plus assists in four straight.

Steph Curry led the Warriors with 35 points, shooting 14-of-27 from the field, and Durant and Thompson each added 26.

Most recently, the Rockets have won 11 of their last 12 games. Harden wows the world with his regular season output, but his underwhelming postseason play invites a wave of criticism and a rethinking of his greatness both contemporarily and historically.
