Excellent live broadcast, January 9th What’s going on with Harden now?
Playing against the Pacers was criticized by Rockets star Calvin Murphy for giving up the game early. Today, against the Magic, it is another three-quarter check-in.
It turned out that the Rockets team felt overwhelmed today, leading by 29 points at halftime to play Magic. Deng had no chance to reap the game at the critical moment, so he could only play three quarters and sweat a little. By the way, he scored 15 points, 5 rebounds and 13 assists
After 1 block, he will rest, and the positive and negative value ( 26) is tied with Wall for the highest in the game.
It is worth mentioning that Harden made no free throws today. If he read it correctly, he had no free throws. This is his 0 free throws in a single game since March 18, 2019, and the second time since January 3, 2015.
0 free throws.
This kind of Harden can’t even admit it. Even if he doesn’t have a high score, he can use another method to decide the outcome of the game, that is, put his focus on the organization and concentrate on feeding the jumping men.
Today, the insider new core Wood, who came back today, was another day of being fed up. With Harden’s lead flying, he staged a good alley-oop show many times. The audience scored 22 points, 15 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 blocks and a large double-double.
Rebounds tied career record.
According to statistics, including the 2019-20 season, Wood has scored 20 points in 11 consecutive games. He is the first undrafted player to achieve this achievement after Connie Hawkins in 1970.
With $41 million in three years, he may really be expected to become the Rockets’ thick eyebrow brother. He is very good on both offense and defense, and he can be called the most valuable signing this season.
In the last two games, Harden only scored 15 points, but he was able to send out 12 assists and 13 assists, which revitalized the whole team. At present, his average assists per game has reached 11 times, ranking second in the league.
Yu former teammate Westbrook (11.8 times).
But in this case, it means that Wall’s best pass was robbed. He now averages only 5.2 assists per game, but judging from Paul Westbrook’s previous experience of partnering with Harden, it is not unusual.
Besides, isn’t Wall averaging 21.2 points per game now?
For a player who hasn’t played a serious game for so long, he is already satisfied.
I can’t help but ask, does Harden still want to leave?
First of all, the Rockets management lion opened his mouth, and the asking price scared off all interested teams, so Harden has remained in Houston. This is a well-known fact, and now he intends to change his style of play and actively integrate into the team.
Coach Silas praised Harden frantically after the game, saying that he did everything he asked, was great with and without the ball, and worked super hard on the defensive end.
According to common sense, after Harden proposes a deal, it is normal for Harden to play passively, or to frantically swipe statistics to improve his worth, and the team’s record has nothing to do with him.
But Venom now only sees that Harden is willing to sacrifice his own data to lead this brand new rocket on the right track with a more reasonable attitude. Of course, it may be his lofty work ethic that prompted him to do so, and he wants to play the ball well no matter what.
If you pay attention to Harden’s news recently, you will find that the rumors about his trade have almost disappeared, as if they never existed, and maybe this year will really not go.
Even Tucker, who was also deeply involved in trade rumors before, seems to have ignited his interest in playing with the Rockets. Today he played his best game of the season so far, scoring 15 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 blocks.
In the end, the finale was left to McLemore, who made his debut this season. He played 15 minutes and made 5 three-pointers and contributed 15 points. He is a proper cold-blooded shooter.
