'La Barba' Harden se ríe de sí mismo y de las críticas a su inexistente defensa: "¿Que YO me pongo defensivo?" marca.com/2014/11/27/bal… @marca

Donatas Motiejunas

Day off. Thanksgiving. Team Harden!!! Padėkos diena! #oneteam #RedNation http://t.co/oG2xY2OjF9

Devin Kharpertian

James Harden has a FG% of .392 but true shooting percentage (which values FT’s & 3’s) of .562. Largest disparity in the NBA.

Emiliano Carchia

Rockets' Donatas Motiejunas dishes a sick pass to James Harden sportando.com/en/usa/nba/142… http://t.co/weTTWV4iOH

Alex Kennedy

Anyone who mocks Harden's defense should give credit when he defends well. 3 blocks, 2 steals today, including this: vine.co/v/O1Lnj2FlFLi

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan had 6 3-pointers, the fourth Rockets player with at least 6 in a game (with Harden, Ariza, Beverley). No other team with more than 1.

David Hardisty

McHale praised Harden's defense, saying it was a sign of maturity as a player that he's bringing it there when his offense is struggling.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 102, Kings 89. Harden struggles shooting, but posts 26p-8a-7r-3blk-2stl. Career-highs Canaan (24p), D-Mo (21p). Rockets 12-3!

Jenny Dial Creech

Harden get s steal then a drive, finishing with a momentum-stealing slam. #Rockets lead 95-85 with 2:07 to play.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with a drive, a steal and a breakaway. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 left. He's 9 of 30, but has 24-8-7.

Jason Jones

Harden with the steal and dunk that might seal this one. Rockets up 95-85, 2:07 to play.

Howard Chen

Not a typo RT @David Hardisty: Harden may have just won the game with his defense.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden is back… after a third quarter slump, he is looking pretty good.

David Hardisty

Harden may have just won the game with his defense.

Sean Cunningham

One of those nights, James Harden?

Tom Ziller

Harden finally hits one via having no Kings within two counties of him.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden through his hands in the air after hitting that one. #relief

David Hardisty

Harden misses the wide open three, but gets a second chance and nails the corner three! Rockets up 9, 4:54 left.

James Ham

James Harden now 6-of-24 from the field.

Tom Ziller

Ben McLemore is shutting down James Harden.

David Hardisty

The 3-4 min starting stretch of fourth when Harden sits has been tough for Rockets lately, but they kept the 4-pt lead as Harden returns.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have no Dwight, Jones, Beverley. Harden's shot missing since 1st q. They are 5 of 13 from line. Somehow, still up 4.

Tom Ziller

"At shooting guard, out of Arendelle ... James Harden!"

Jenny Dial Creech

He looks human for the first time in weeks. RT @David Hardisty: Harden has no mojo right now, even missing a pair of free throws.

David Hardisty

Harden has no mojo right now, even missing a pair of free throws.

Jason Jones

Canaan has all of Harden's shot-making ability at the moment.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden 1 of 15 with 1 assist since the first quarter. For some reason, with his shot, 3 starters out, Rockets having trouble scoring.

Jason Jones

James Harden is shooting 5-for-20, just one assist since the first quarter.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets not just missing 3s. Actually, that's all they've made for awhile thanks to Canaan. Harden short on 2 drives, an 18-footer.

David Hardisty

Since starting the game 4-6 from the field after one quarter, James Harden is now 1-14 from the field.

Tom Ziller

James Harden is as cold as the turkey I forgot to defrost -- uh, dammit, BRB.

David Hardisty

James Harden has had two big-league rejections from behind in this quarter, but Rockets can't buy a basket. Timeout McHale, 60-58 Houston.

Jonathan Feigen

On the other end, Harden has cooled off badly. He's made 1 of his last 10 shots.

James Ham

Nice awareness by Ben McLemore. Goes up for rebound, misses, but flies out to guard 3-ball by Harden.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with a strong block of a Cousins shot. Hearing about it (or something) from Reggie Evans.

Jason Jones

Kings have trailed by as many as 22. harden has 15 points, 5 assists for Houston.

Sean Cunningham

From down 22, to down 7, Kings trail Rockets 57-50. 14pts, 7rebs for DeMarcus Cousins. James Harden game-high 15pts. #NBAKings #Rockets

Jonathan Feigen

ICYMI, Harden's veteran teammates seeing signs of greatness. First quarter offers more of same. houstonchronicle.com/sports/rockets… via @HoustonChron

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 37, Kings 19 after 1. Rockets match their season high for points in a quarter. Harden with 12p, 5a. Rockets shoot 60.9 %. Sac 9 tos.

David Hardisty

What a quarter for James Harden: 12 points on 4-6 FG, 4-4 FT, 5 assists, 2 boards, a steal and a block. 37-19 Rockets after one.

Bill Herenda

McCallum on Harden, tough cover of course, #Kings down 34-19 to #Rockets #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk @CSNAuthentic

Harden, Curry going back and forth for league lead in points scored or created off assists. Harden with 8p, 5a in 9 minutes.

Jenny Dial Creech

Timeout Sacramento - #Rockets up 28-16. Crowd into this one. That timeout came on a D-Mo behind the back pass to Harden for a layup.

Jonathan Feigen

I'm going to say that's the best highlight of D-Mo's career. Behind the back on a break and then a behind the back pass to Harden for layup.

David Hardisty

OH, D-MO! Motiejunas goes behind-the-back to Harden on the fast break. Fans LOVE it. Rockets up by 12, 28-16.

David Hardisty

D-Mo already has 7 points after that corner three, and Harden with 6 points, 3 assists, a steal and a block. Rockets up 21-11 early.

Jonathan Feigen

What will happen first? Harden 35 points or Rockets 35 3-pt attempts? Rockets probably need both to win.

David Hardisty

James Harden with a steal and a block early. I'm guessing you won't see either in a viral animated GIF.
