HARDEN HAD 27 POINTS, 12 DIMES, 8 BOARDS IN 35 SIXERS MINUTES!

By Tommy Matthews

Maybe the James Harden Deniers saw last night’s game against the Wolves.

And maybe they didn’t because it wasn’t on ESPN or TNT so Stephen A and all the rest can wait until the Sixers play on ABC tomorrow against the Knicks to see what Philly fans saw last night:

The Beard not only scores (27), but he dishes and rebounds.

He had 12 assists and 8 rebounds to go with his 27 points in 35 minutes.

“We know he can score, he’s always gonna get downhill, but guys got the ball a lot more than they thought,” said coach Doc Rivers. “They were wide-open and that was pretty good.”

“He’s a great passer, I think everyone knows that, but I think when you play with him, you see it more,” Rivers added. “I think Tobias and Furk today (Thursday), when they were running stuff with him, were wide-open and they were surprised by it.

“I think it’ll help him,” Rivers said of Harden’s presence. “I don’t think it’ll hurt him. Furk’s not a point guard so now Furk can go back to what he does and he did that today a lot. We played Furk with that unit today, Furk benefitted probably as much as anybody on the team.”
