Harden's stat line from Monday does not do his performance justice. It's a real master piece. The defense that is being played on him is extremely tight; Memphis didn't give him anything easy. What stands out is that once he hit a couple of contested step-back threes, Memphis was completely screwed. Once they had to really respect that shot and sell-out to defend it; Harden's intelligence and ball-handling exploited that eagerness to get to the basket. All of a sudden there was no defense that could stop him. Unreal.
