Nov. 22 7:22 PM PT8:22 PM MT9:22 PM CT10:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST7:22 UAE (+1)04:2222:22 ET9:22 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 21 points Wednesday on 6-of-16 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Denver Nuggets 125-95.

Analysis: Harden had his lowest point total since Oct. 28 but that was due mainly to the easy win as he played fewer minutes. He missed all but one of his seven 3-point attempts but was just an assist and two rebounds shy of a triple-double.
Nov. 19 9:12 PM PT10:12 PM MT11:12 PM CT12:12 AM ET5:12 GMT13:12 10:12 PM MST12:12 AM EST9:12 UAE06:120:12 ET11:12 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Saturday, going 9 of 20 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Memphis Grizzlies 105-83.

Analysis: The Rockets are now off until Wednesday when they open a four-game homestand against Denver. In his only game with three days' rest this season, Harden had 35 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds in a win over Cleveland on Nov. 9.
Nov. 17 10:47 PM PT11:47 PM MT12:47 AM CT1:47 AM ET6:47 GMT14:47 11:47 PM MST1:47 AM EST10:47 UAE07:471:47 ET12:47 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 48 points Thursday on 12-of-22 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Phoenix Suns 142-116.

Analysis: Harden had 23 points in the second quarter alone in his latest fantasy masterpiece. The prolific guard is on arguably the best six-game stretch of his career, a tear in which he's averaging an absurd 40.2 points and 11.2 assists while connecting on 31 of 70 (44.3 percent) attempts from beyond the arc and going to the foul line 82 times.
Nov. 14 7:40 PM PT8:40 PM MT9:40 PM CT10:40 PM ET3:40 GMT11:40 8:40 PM MST10:40 PM EST7:40 UAE (+1)04:4022:40 ET9:40 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 38 points Tuesday on 8-of-25 shooting as the Houston Rockets lost to the Toronto Raptors 129-113. He made all 19 of his free throws, setting a franchise record for most foul shots without a miss in a game. Harden grabbed six rebounds and had 11 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 39:22 of playing time. He added one block while also turning the ball over nine times. Harden went 3 of 11 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden, who has scored at least 35 in four of the last five games, averaged 33 points in three games against the Suns last season. The Rockets are in Phoenix on Thursday.
Nov. 12 8:29 PM PT9:29 PM MT10:29 PM CT11:29 PM ET4:29 GMT12:29 9:29 PM MST11:29 PM EST8:29 UAE05:2923:29 ET10:29 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 26 points Sunday, going 9 of 21 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Indiana Pacers 118-95. Harden pulled down five rebounds and dished out 15 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +25 in his 33:34 of playing time. He added two steals. Harden went 3 of 12 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden keeps on carrying the Rockets and many a fantasy team during Chris Paul's absence. The early-season MVP candidate is averaging an insane 35.8 points and 11.5 assists while going 34 of 76 (44.7 percent) on 3-point tries during Houston's current six-game winning streak. It's needless to say he should be starting if he's on your roster.
Nov. 11 6:50 PM PT7:50 PM MT8:50 PM CT9:50 PM ET2:50 GMT10:50 7:50 PM MST9:50 PM EST6:50 UAE (+1)03:5021:50 ET8:50 PM CTNaN:� - Harden scored 38 points Saturday on 11-of-25 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 111-96.

Nov. 9 7:39 PM PT8:39 PM MT9:39 PM CT10:39 PM ET3:39 GMT11:39 8:39 PM MST10:39 PM EST7:39 UAE (+1)04:3922:39 ET9:39 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 35 points Thursday, going 8 of 21 from the field, as the Houston Rockets defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-113. Harden pulled down 11 rebounds and had 13 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 42:41 of playing time. He added one block and five steals. Harden went 6 of 14 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Harden has scored 30 or more points in three of the last four games, highlighted by a 56-point performance in a win over the Jazz on Sunday. It's the second triple-double of the season for Harden and the 33rd of his career. He's also racking up the turnovers with a league-high 61.
Nov. 7 10:52 AM PT11:52 AM MT12:52 PM CT1:52 PM ET18:52 GMT2:52 11:52 AM MST1:52 PM EST22:52 UAE19:5213:52 ET12:52 PM CTNaN:� - Harden (personal) was reportedly excused from practice Tuesday but is expected to play in Houston's next game Thursday against the Cavaliers.
Analysis: It would seem there's no way Harden would miss out on a chance to square off with King James and the Cavs, especially after totaling 79 points and 26 assists in last season's two meetings.
Nov. 5 7:04 PM PT8:04 PM MT9:04 PM CT10:04 PM ET3:04 GMT11:04 8:04 PM MST10:04 PM EST7:04 UAE (+1)04:0422:04 ET9:04 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 56 points Sunday, going 19 of 25 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Utah Jazz 137-110. Harden pulled down two rebounds and dished out 13 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +25 in his 35:15 on the floor. He added two steals. Harden went 7 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden had 22 points in both the first and third quarters, 30 at halftime and sat for the final 7:32 of the blowout. With his 29th point, all in the first half, Harden surpassed Hall of Famer Moses Malone for fifth place in franchise history with 11,120 points. Harden opened the game 10-for-10 before missing a floater in the lane late in the second quarter. The Rockets now have three days off until Thursday's matchup with the Cavs.
Nov. 3 8:57 PM PT9:57 PM MT10:57 PM CT11:57 PM ET3:57 GMT11:57 8:57 PM MST10:57 PM EST7:57 UAE (+1)04:5723:57 ET9:57 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Friday on 8-of-15 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Atlanta Hawks 119-104.

Analysis: Harden had another outstanding performance with his fourth double-double. He hit six 3-pointers for the second straight game and shot over 50 percent for just the second time this season. Maybe the best news was Harden matching a season low with just two turnovers after he totaled 14 in the two previous contests.
Nov. 2 8:22 AM PT9:22 AM MT10:22 AM CT11:22 AM ET15:22 GMT23:22 8:22 AM MST10:22 AM EST19:22 UAE16:2211:22 ET9:22 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 31 points Wednesday, going 9 of 23 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the New York Knicks 119-97. Harden pulled down five rebounds and dished out nine assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +21 in his 34:47 of playing time. Harden went 6 of 17 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden is averaging 26.6 points, 9.1 assists and 4.8 rebounds so far. It certainly has helped his fantasy owners that Chris Paul has been out, especially in the assist category. He's also making 3.7 3-pointers per game.
Oct. 30 7:26 PM PT8:26 PM MT9:26 PM CT10:26 PM ET2:26 GMT10:26 7:26 PM MST9:26 PM EST6:26 UAE (+1)03:2622:26 ET8:26 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Monday on 8-of-21 shooting as the Houston Rockets lost to the Philadelphia 76ers 115-107. Harden pulled down four rebounds and dished out seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 38:27 on the floor. He added one block and four steals. Harden went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Harden still hasn't hit the 30-point mark this season, matching a season high with his 29 points. The Houston superstar still isn't shooting all that well, making 22 of 58 (37.9 percent) the last three games, including 9 of 26 from deep. Harden's point totals will surely rise once Chris Paul returns but his 4.8 rebound average is way off last season's career-best 8.1 mark.
Oct. 28 7:50 PM PT8:50 PM MT9:50 PM CT10:50 PM ET2:50 GMT10:50 7:50 PM MST9:50 PM EST6:50 UAE (+1)04:5022:50 ET9:50 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 20 points Saturday, going 6 of 19 from the field, as the Houston Rockets lost to the Memphis Grizzlies 103-89. Harden pulled down four rebounds and had eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 33:37 of playing time. He added two steals. Harden went 2 of 9 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden had his lowest point total of the season Saturday playing in the second half of a back-to-back.
Oct. 27 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET2:09 GMT10:09 7:09 PM MST9:09 PM EST6:09 UAE (+1)04:0922:09 ET9:09 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 27 points Friday, going 8 of 18 from the field, as the Houston Rockets defeated the Charlotte Hornets 109-93. Harden pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out 11 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 36:56 on the floor. He added one steal. Harden went 4 of 10 from 3-point range.
Analysis: It was the first triple-double of the season for Howard, who has scored at least 27 in five of six games.
Oct. 25 5:52 PM PT6:52 PM MT7:52 PM CT8:52 PM ET0:52 GMT8:52 5:52 PM MST7:52 PM EST4:52 UAE (+1)02:5220:52 ET7:52 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 27 points Wednesday, going 10 of 20 from the field, as the Houston Rockets defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 105-104. Harden pulled down three rebounds and had 13 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +4 in his 39:17 on the floor. He added three blocks and one steal. Harden went 2 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden notched his second double-double of the season and shot 50 percent or better for the second time in five games. He did have a season-high eight turnovers, giving him 20 in the past three contests. Harden has ye to hit the boards very hard, averaging 4.0 rebounds after he averaged a career-best 8.1 last season.
Oct. 23 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST7:22 UAE (+1)05:2223:22 ET10:22 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 22 points Monday, going 8 of 20 from the field, as the Houston Rockets fell to the Memphis Grizzlies 98-90. Harden pulled down five rebounds and dished out eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -14 in his 35:08 on the floor. He added one steal. Harden went 2 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Harden was named Western Conference Player of the Week after averaging 27.7 points, nine rebounds and four assists as Houston went 3-0. On Monday, however, had had seven turnovers and had just two points on 1-of-5 shooting in the fourth quarter.
Oct. 21 8:20 PM PT9:20 PM MT10:20 PM CT11:20 PM ET3:20 GMT11:20 8:20 PM MST10:20 PM EST7:20 UAE (+1)05:2023:20 ET10:20 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Saturday, going 10 of 19 from the field, as the Houston Rockets defeated the Dallas Mavericks 107-91.

Analysis: Playing without Chris Paul, who is week-to-week with a left knee injury, Harden frequently bulldozed his way into the paint for layups while also keeping hot from beyond the arc. He's hit at least four 3s in each of the first three games while averaging 27.7 points and 8.7 assists.
Oct. 19 7:47 AM PT8:47 AM MT9:47 AM CT10:47 AM ET14:47 GMT22:47 7:47 AM MST9:47 AM EST18:47 UAE16:4710:47 ET9:47 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 27 points Wednesday on 8-of-21 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Sacramento Kings 105-100. Harden pulled down three rebounds and dished out nine assists, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 37:46 of playing time. He added two steals. Harden went 4 of 14 from behind the arc.
Analysis: It was a heavy workload considering he played 36:24 the previous night, also scoring 27 points, but the Rockets needed his big minutes with Chris Paul sitting out.
Oct. 18 11:06 PM PT12:06 AM MT1:06 AM CT2:06 AM ET6:06 GMT14:06 11:06 PM MST1:06 AM EST10:06 UAE08:062:06 ET1:06 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 27 points Tuesday on 10-of-23 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Golden State Warriors 122-121.

Analysis: Last season's NBA MVP runner-up put up a stat line similar to his 2016-17 averages in his first game sharing a backcourt with Chris Paul. Harden still saw quite a bit of time at the point in the season opener, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect his assist numbers to take a significant dip if at all.
July 8 1:02 PM PT2:02 PM MT3:02 PM CT4:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST0:02 UAE (+1)22:0216:02 ET3:02 PM CTNaN:� - The Houston Rockets have signed Harden to a four-year, $160 million contract extension, giving him the richest contract in NBA history at $228 million over six years. The Rockets said Saturday the extension will run through 2022-23 season but will not kick in until 2019. That means it will not affect their salary cap this season, so the Rockets are free to continue their roster upgrade. They added Chris Paul earlier this summer.
Analysis: Harden is coming off of his finest season. Moving to point guard for new coach Mike D'Antoni, Harden averaged 29.1 points, an NBA-leading 11.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds and finished second in the MVP race to former Oklahoma City teammate Russell Westbrook.
