Dante Exum never had a chance.
Looking to ice the game, James Harden cooked up an unfair sequence of moves on Exum, ending with a stepback 3-pointer to effectively put the Rockets ahead of the Jazz for good Saturday night. Houston went on to win, 111-102.
Harden has been unreal this season with the numbers he’s putting up in Mike D’Antoni’s system. He’s certainly in the early MVP discussion as he’s made 30 points and 10 assists a routine.
He’s averaging 28.5 points and 12.7 assists a night with the Rockets beginning the season 8-5. It’s safe to say the switch to point guard has been a good move.
