But coach Mike D’Antoni’s MVP-approved offense didn’t just prop up Harden; he’s been here before. “He’s doing it again,” Ariza told The Vertical. “He had an MVP season – we thought – when [Stephen] Curry won it the first time [in 2015]. But he’s taken that sting and he’s come back – just ridiculous. He’s just playing, saying, ‘It’s not about me, it’s about us.’ And he understands that.” There will be times the rest of the season when Harden is on the wrong end of a Leonard (or Gordon Hayward) chase-down block, but Sunday was his turn to face up Irving and stuff a pull-up jumper – holding off jokes on the silent “d” in his last name for at least a few days. Ariza wasn’t aware Harden had another methodical, smooth-jazz triple-double during the game but that has happened several times this season. “You look up there or look at the stat sheet and see he had a triple-double like, ‘Damn, he’s really out here doing this,’” Ariza told The Vertical, “and he’s just playing his regular game. It’s crazy.”
The responsibility Harden has taken in normalizing mind-numbing numbers and elevating the Houston Rockets back into a contender has served all season as his greatest ally. But there certainly was no harm in leading the Rockets to a much-needed 117-112 win at Toyota Center while posting the kind of effortless-looking triple-double that has become the norm – all with the active leader in Maurice Podoloff trophies and the defending champs in his building. “Everything that he’s doing is just remarkable,” Rockets forward Trevor Ariza told The Vertical after Harden recorded his 16th triple-double of the season with 38 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. “He’s scoring at will. He’s getting his teammates involved. He’s rebounding the ball like a big man. He’s doing everything and not only that, his team is winning. We have a chance to compete for a championship. What he’s doing, I don’t think I’ve personally seen it – live – seen a person play the way he’s playing.”
Calvin Watkins: Rockets guard Eric Gordon said his agent, Rob Pelinka, will become the GM of the Lakers. “I think he’s going to be good,” Gordon said. “He had a good reputation as an agent and definitely expect nothing but good things from him. It’s a different challenge and I think he’ll be just fine.” Pelinka not only represents Gordon but Trevor Ariza and James Harden.
