Rockets star Harden questionable to play vs. Celtics

He just doesn't think any of them will be able to prevent him from repeating as the award's recipient.

That's exactly what happened on Thursday night against the Celtics, as the Rockets had Harden and Gordon hunt down Gordon Hayward and, later, Daniel Theis, in order to get moving toward the rim and create an open shot.

"You can name a few other people that should be in the conversation. But realistically? It's coming back", said Harden. He's scored 30 or more points in seven straight games.

Harden now is averaging a career high in points (32.7) and effective field goal percentage (54.7) while matching his true shooting percentage (61.9) from last season's MVP run.

Harden scored a game-high 41 points to help the Rockets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 113-109 on Christmas Day.

Harden's 388 total points during this stretch are the most by any player over 10 consecutive games since Kobe Bryant had 396 for the Los Angeles Lakers from March 22-April 8, 2007.

Editor's note: This line sits at Celtics -2 as of writing, but it was recently reported that Harden is expected to play despite being listed as questionable.
