Harden stay setting records. 

 

Last night he took hold of the least efficient 50+ point game in NBA history since the shot clock era, 1950.

 

That means of all the 50, 60, 70, and 80 point games Kobe managed, they were all more efficient than Hardens the other night. 

 

Now tonight, he might have set a personal record. Only 3 shots taken in the first half. 

 

Dude is amazing. 

That truly is incredible, with how atrocious and selfish' Kobe's final game was when everyone just wanted him to heave every shot possible

 

How the fuck is someone less efficient than that? Lol

Dont be an ass

Didn’t you learn from your suspension last time, Simple Jake?

20-34 shooting, 10-18 from three, 55 points, and 8 assists in his 22nd career 50-point game which is only 3 fewer than Kobe had. (now it's 2)

 

His 55 points were the second most ever scored by a player with 5 or fewer free throw attempts. Second only to Rick Barry all time.

 

This was also the 11th game of his career scoring at least 55 points (Kobe had just 9). Only Wilt did that more times than Harden has.

 

Edit: Just another typical game from Harden two days later. 19-31, 10-15 from three, 54 points, with only 6 FT attempts for the 23rd 50-point game of his career. He's now the second player in NBA history with 10 made 3-pointers in back-to-back games, besides Curry. But he still sucks, right? :rolleyes:

Chris Broussard from FS1 says that Harden's numbers the last 4 seasons are inflated because of Mike D'Antoni and his scheme.

 

He thinks people put too much stock into Harden's MVP-caliber numbers averaging between 29 and 36 points per game every year since 2016.

 

Now that they have a 2nd MVP in Westbrook, they no longer need their other MVP to score 30-35 PPG but he should still come close to that next year.

 

It's very unlikely that D'Antoni will return, unless they win a title this year. It will be a mutual parting of ways and hopefully they find a good successor.

 

If the Rockets do indeed have a new coach for the 2020-21 season, there's no reason to believe that Harden's production is going to drop off that much.

Leave it to Jake not to understand what's perfectly obvious to anyone with a brain. Harden is one of the most efficient scorers in NBA history. It's simply absurd how so many people refuse to acknowledge how great he is, and how he will take his place among the all-time greats once his historic career comes to an end.

 

But as far as who becomes the first NBA player to succeed in making 3000 three-point shots, right now the score is Curry's 2495 to Harden's 2324.

 

Over the past 4 seasons Steph is averaging right around 225 makes a year, of course a lot of that has to do with him missing so many games, but staying healthy is an extremely important part of breaking an all-time record. Harden has managed to average about 300 made three-pointers during the same period so over the next two seasons you can add about 450 to Curry's total and 600 to Harden's. That would put their total about Harden with 2924 and Curry with 2945.

 

So even though Curry has the edge right now, with a cushion of 171, we should expect Harden to narrow the gap over the next two seasons and make it close.

That literally has absolutely nothing to do with what you quoted

Exactly and with his athleticism on the decline he's probably the worst contract in the league. He's been atrocious in these playoffs, dude can barely throw an accurate pass. I know they wanted to move CP3 and Harden advocated for Russ but Morey definitely fucked that one up. He looked better before the bubble but they become much easier to guard with him in the game.
