James Harden name West reserve, will have to wait for decision on Kobe Bryant’s replacement

James Harden made at least one decision for Western Conference coaches easy. The coaches, however, might have made the decision for one coach very difficult. Harden was selected a Western Conference reserve for the third-consecutive season, with a starting position open with Kobe Bryant out for a second-consecutive season. Harden replaced Bryant in the Western […]

James Harden chosen to NBA All-Star Game

We all knew it was happening, but now it's official. James Harden has been chosen to his third consecutive NBA All-Star team. The Beard, the NBA's leading scorer at the season's midway mark and frontrunner for MVP, was chosen as a reserve by the coaches after dumb fans put Kobe Bryant in the game. Time did what it does to athletes of Kobe's age and mileage, and now the surefire Hall-of-Famer is on the shelf with a torn rotator cuff, opening the door for Harden to start the game as he rightfully deserves. Harden's selection to the roster was first reported by Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. USA...

Five things we learned from the Rockets’ victory over the Mavericks

Rockets 99, Mavericks 94 James Harden saw the usual extra defensive attention and was happy to move the ball and set up teammates, finding just enough perimeter shooting for the Rockets to win even with Harden 10 points shy of his league-leading average. Harden can expect more of that treatment, but has seen it often […]

Rick Carlisle on James Harden: ‘There’s nobody playing better basketball on the planet’

As Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said Rockets guard James Harden is playing as well as anyone in the NBA, he also indicated the sort of defensive game plans he has faced while doing it, citing all the attention he wanted the Mavericks to pay to him. “Right now, there’s nobody playing better basketball on the […]

Five things we learned from the Rockets’ victory over the Lakers

Rockets 99, Lakers 87 For James Harden, scoring 37 points no longer seems that noteworthy. He has averaged 37 points in his past four games. He has reached 30 in seven of his past nine games. But Sunday’s scoring stood out because it looked so easy with Harden’s greatest challenged his ability to take the […]

Harden drops 37, Rockets win 99-87

James Harden was on the bench for most of the fourth quarter. As a result, Houston only scored 19 points. James Harden has been an offensive machine recently, averaging 37 points and almost eight assists per game in the Rockets' last four match ups. And Houston has certainly needed his offensive surge, especially as the team continues to deal with injuries to key players. Last night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers was no different. Dwight Howard didn't play due to a right ankle sprain (we were saved from constant boo-ing), so Harden stepped up his game and tried to get everyone...

Lakers can’t handle James Harden as Rockets cruise in L.A.

LOS ANGELES – James Harden considered his options, somehow sifting through all this choices easily and quickly. He could drive to the rim or pull up. He could set up Rockets big men inside or fire passes to open teammates outside. He could do pretty much whatever he wished, challenged largely by at least some […]

James Harden's value, Goran Dragic's free agency and more

Rocket Fuel! James Harden went 33-10-6-3 last night and nailed a game-winning buzzer-beater. Perhaps you've read about it on TheDreamShake dot com. Every game, it seems Harden does more and more to separate himself from the MVP field. He's the league's leader in scoring, total points and win shares, is averaging damn near 7 assists a game and right at two steals per game. And, oh by the way, the Rockets are 30-14 this year and, if the season ended today, they'd have home-court advantage in the 4-5 series against the Dallas Mavericks. Without Stephen Curry, the Warriors would have Shaun...

Rockets edge Suns 113-111 with Harden buzzer beater

"Tie game on the road, you live for those moments" - James Harden Houston was able to fight off the Phoenix Suns last night, who had won their last four straight games until James Harden fought off defenders P.J. Tucker and Isaiah Thomas to deliver this impressive buzzer beater: Harden tallied 33 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals in 39 minutes; He made three of his six three-point attempts and went 14-for-17 from the charity stripe. Donatas Motiejunas scored 15 points, while Patrick Beverley, Josh Smith and Corey Brewer each added 14 points. What about Dwight Howard? Howard...

Harden’s buzzer-beater nets Rockets 30th win of season

PHOENIX – For much of the past two seasons, P.J. Tucker had given James Harden fits. He could not beat Harden, as Tucker pointed out, but he was as tough a match up as Harden found. For all Tucker had done, however, Harden had an irrefutable rebuttal. With the game tied and the ball in […]

Final Score: Phoenix Suns lose on James Harden jumper at the buzzer, 113-111

In a thriller, James Harden came through all game long and when it mattered most. He made the jumper as the clock expired to give the Houston Rockets the win over the Phoenix Suns, 113-111. The game didn't look the same in person, but the results were the same. The Houston Rockets took a strong lead and led for most of the game by double digits before the Suns mounted a big comeback to pull within a couple of possessions. The game got real interesting late, as the Suns made big shot after big shot to closing the gap. But the Rockets kept scoring too, which isn't a good thing in a...

Kobe Bryant’s injury could open door for James Harden to start All-Star Game

For all James Harden has accomplished in a career year, the accomplishments of Kobe Bryant’s career remained too much to overcome. Considered among the MVP frontrunners, Harden finished third in the balloting among Western Conference guards, behind Golden State’s Stephen Curry, the league’s top vote-getter, and Bryant. As with last season, however, the announcement on […]

James Harden mellows ‘aint that good’ stance on Warriors

Though Warriors players made a great deal of a video of James Harden’s comments in a pregame huddle last week when he said to teammates “they ain’t that good” before the Rockets took the court, Harden seemed convinced of Golden State’s excellence after the Warriors completed a season-sweep of the Rockets with a 126-113 win […]
