Houston Rockets vs Charlotte Hornets (By: Miyagi)
Harden had a really tough time yesterday where he finished the game with an extremely low 20p and an even lower 28% from the field! There were claims that he played through pain with a sore wrist but nothing serious as there is no concern/update on his status so it was probably one of those bad days that even the very best have.
Harden has an impressive record on back to back games where he hard carries the Rockets as he averages an impressive 41.8p per game with no rest! Adding the fact that he is playing at home, where he averages 4 points more than on the road as well as the fact that he didn't have a great game against the Hornets a couple of weeks ago where he finished the game with 30p and a surprising 1 for 11 (9%) from the 3P line, then he should have some extra motivation here.
Batum seems like the one assigned to be on Harden, at least early in this game, but it's quite pointless to take that into consideration as there is no player in the league that can stop Harden when he does his thing and those that try spend most of the game on the bench with foul trouble.
I like Harden to bounce back here, have another 40+p game and ease things.
