James Harden is certainly proving the MVP voters had a tough decision to make in possibly one of the toughest MVP races in NBA history. After the conclusion to last nights Golden State game with Stephen Curry then James Harden’s game tonight I’d hate to even have a vote this year after you see this jaw dropping performance.
Harden would score 42 points, 9 assists and 5 rebounds to cap off a victory against The Dallas Mavericks 130-128 in Dallas.
Harden’s career playoff high 42 point performance will move the series to 3-0 in The Rockets favor. Harden shot 5 of 7 from beyond the arc and gave Houston exactly what they needed to edge Dallas tonight. The Mavericks face possible elimination on Sunday and Harden could take advantage of a Dallas team that could be ready to call it a season after the first 3 grueling games.
