James Harden has always been a superstar, but when you look at his stats on New Year’s Eve(53 points, 17 assists, and 16 rebounds), you can really tell he’s great. For an example of how well he played, just look at his highlights with the link under “Videos”. He was 9-16 from three point land and many times drove into the lane to lay it up or dunk it. And this was the night after a 30 point, 13 rebound, and 10 assist night. There have only been 4 games all season that he has not had double-digit assists, and has put up 30+ points and 10+ assists in the past four games. The 53/17/16 game was the first ever time that someone has had 50+ points, 15+ rebounds, and 15+ assists. This was an amazing performance by James Harden.
