Atlanta Hawks vs Houston Rockets (By: Miyagi)
This is a tricky game for the Rockets who will play on the road against probably the most dangerous tanking team of the league, definitely the highest scoring tanking team (112.5ppg) and the team that plays at ridiculously high pace ranking first in the league by far in that category.
Quick facts here: Harden leads the league in FT attempts with 11.1 per game. Hawks lead the league in FTs allowed to their opponents with 27.9 per game. Hawks rank easily worst in the league in points allowed form guard positions over the last 10 games. Hawks were the team to put an end to Harden's incredible 32-game streak with at least 30p scored about 3 weeks ago and that was also the first game that he failed to score at least one three-pointer this season as he went 0 for 10.
Given the fact that, theoretically, his task today is as easy as it gets, will Harden seek some kind of revenge? Nuh, I don't think so, he is a good guy. His season high is 61p by the way (vs Knicks on the road).
I just like Harden today for no apparent reason...
