BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) — James Harden was questionable to face the Celtics last night because of his bruised left calf, but you wouldn't have known it watching the game.
Harden went off for 45 points - including 9 3-pointers in a convincing 127-113 Rockets win.
This will come as a shock, but Kyrie Irving said he's tough to defend.
Harden's the reigning NBA's Most Valuable Player and, once again, the guard leads the league in scoring.
He's also not so humble on whether he's worthy of being in the MVP conversation again.
The inconsistent Celts continue their trip in Memphis tomorrow.
