So far this year, Doncic and Young are the only two players who spend more than a third of their off-ball time 35 or more feet away. During his time in Houston, Harden would have joined them, but he has done a better job staying in the play in Brooklyn, allowing himself to pose an off-ball threat even when Durant or Kyrie Irving are operating with the ball. This represents a stark change from a year ago when Harden spent 47 percent of the time a teammate had the ball below the foul line more than 35 feet from the baseline, with over 70 percent of his time in such situations spent above the hashmark.
