James Harden played 38 minutes in the Sixers 133-126 loss to the Mavericks, scoring 27 points (8-of-12 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) with four rebounds, 13 assists, and five 3-pointers.
Harden recorded his second points/assists double-double in three games, and he’s scored 20 or more in nine of his last 10 games. But he did enter Thursday in a bit of a slump, shooting 35.6% from the field in the three games prior.
Harden was able to get back on track with his shot, a welcome development despite his racking up six turnovers.
He and the 76ers will wrap up their Week 19 slate with a game at Milwaukee Saturday night.
