A graphic during Lakers vs Nets shows just how much James Harden is doing, all by himself, to keep the Nets in the game
James Harden may have started off the season a bit slowly. But boy has his game picked up since then.
In the last 5 games, the man has been averaging 23.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 11.6 assists, while shooting 44.7% from the field.
But, while those numbers look pretty good, it appears that the Beard has unlocked another level. And frankly, it has been much needed.
The Lakers have come into Brooklyn with a healthy Anthony Davis by their side now. And frankly, they look far more threatening with that rim presence now. And as consequence, they have been far tougher to play against on both ends of the floor.
So, how are the Nets still in the game, considering that do not have Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving on the floor?
Well, let’s just say, the man they have on the floor has been absolutely spectacular.

At the time of writing, his box score has further ballooned up to an incredible 33 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists. That is his 35th career 30-point triple-double, which is impressive, to say the least.
For somebody who has been rumored to be a bit unhappy with life in Brooklyn, the man is still putting up incredible performances for the team. Heck, they might even win the game off his performance, despite the Lakers’ performance in the game so far.
As things stand though, the score stands at 104-89, with the Lakers in the lead in the 4th quarter.
