Impressive in attack last season, James Harden is left on bases even more maddening in 2019-2020, to the point of exceeding the GOAT Michael Jordan !
Since the beginning of the season, the Rockets turn out well. Second in Western Conference, the Texans have a nice balance of 10-3. James Harden has reactivated the mode firebug and resumed its status of best scoreur : 39.5 points (41.7%), 5.6 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game. Yes, compared to his season 2018-2019 concluded on an average of 36.1 points, it still seems to have raised the tone… all of this with Russell Westbrook as a teammate.
With 513 points over 13 games, he offers the record in scoring to start the season since the introduction of the line to 3 points. The Michael Jordan of 1986 is second (487 points) and the MJ in 1988 is the third (473 points). To note that Stephen Curry ends up at the gates of the podium (2015, 444 points). To continue to move ahead of Jordan after 14 games, James Harden will need only 15 points against the Trail Blazers on Monday night… mind-Boggling.
