Rockets GM: James Harden Maybe the 'Best Offensive Player of All Time'

Oh my god, James Harden is out of his mind.

Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors host James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Thursday, and Thompson will likely be tasked with the challenge of trying to stop Harden on offense.

The 2018 MVP - who had 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds - recorded his fifth successive 40-point game and hit a game-winning three-pointer with just a second remaining in OT at Oracle Arena.




Harden had one final chance at a game-winner but couldn't get it to fall, which sent the game to overtime.

Danny Kanell was joined by guest host Brady Quinn on Friday's "Off the Bench" podcast where they broke down Harden's ridiculous level of play and his clutch shooting before diving into comparisons to last season. "I don't know where it ranks, but I'm just happy to come away with a win", Harden said after the 135-134 overtime thriller. Even the ones that I miss, they feel good. Harden is averaging close to 40 points per during that stretch while taking over the distribution duties with CP3 still out. The only player in National Basketball Association history to average at least 30 points, eight assists, five rebounds and two steals per game was Jordan in 1988-89. "He's a master of the isolation and the step-back 3 and drawing fouls".

Steph Curry led the Warriors with 35 points and six assists, while Kevin Durant added 26 points and seven rebounds.
