Basketball – Houston Rockets: James Harden Excited For Chris Paul’s Comeback
When Chris Paul returns, James Harden’s staggering scoring streak may reach an end, however the supreme MVP is quite enthusiastic and also prepared to respect the Houston Rockets point guard’s comeback.
Meanwhile, Harden has been proceeding with his mind boggling run of having contributed no less than 30 points in 22 progressive matches, as the injury-riddled Rockets beat the Toronto Raptors 121-119 on Friday in which the legendary player scored 35 points.
The nine-time All-Star having been out since before Christmas because of hamstring damage and everything except five of those tallies have been accomplished without Paul.
Harden trusts Paul can be a noteworthy resource, and the 33-year-old is set to make his rebound on Sunday against the Orlando Magic.
Harden told reporters:
“Leadership and just play-making ability. [On] defense, being able to create defensive steals to our offense.
“I’m just happy to see him back on the court. He spent so long working out and trying to get his body healthy and right as well.”
“It’s great, I’m here for whatever,”
The inclusion of Paul should facilitate the weight on Harden, who demands he is glad for his numbers to diminish on the off chance that it benefits the group.
It looks like there’s nothing but positivity going on for the Rockets. James Harden is historically dominating, Chris Paul is returning, and the Manimal Kenneth Faried has filled his role as a replacement for Capela while he is out. Great things ahead for Houston! #Rockets
