Houston tweets out “King James” with picture of Harden after win over Cavs


Well played Rockets.

James Harden helped his MVP candidacy on Sunday dropping 33 on LeBron James and the Cavaliers in an overtime win for Houston. Harden hit his free throws, too.

The Rockets have gone 11-4 with Dwight Howard out and Harden’s play in that stretch has strengthened his MVP candidacy. He, Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook are currently the top three in the race, but the final 20+ games will determine who gets the win.
