There aren’t even words for him anymore.
For the past few weeks, he has become the best show going (just beating out “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch”). Thursday night he took his traveling road show to Oakland and outplayed Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant — 44 points, 10-of-23 from three, 15 assists, 10 rebounds…
And oh yes, this game-winner in overtime (on a play Draymond Green fouled him).
That was justice served — the Warriors were up two because of Curry shot, which came about only because Durant “saved” the ball from going out when both of KD’s feet were clearly out of bounds.
The Warriors led by 20 in this one, but their casual attitude during the regular season caught up with them again in the second half. They relaxed. Harden did not — the opposite in fact. And the way he is playing right now there would be no denying The Beard.
