Daily Wrap: James Harden Is Ready For The Warriors

james harden basketball forever

James Harden’s recent exploits would be impressive regardless of the circumstances.

But considering he’s toying with the best defence in the West and forcing them to completely change their schemes from night to night to no avail…this is just blatantly unfair.

Utah has aggressively forced Harden right over the first two games.

And he has obliged, torching them anyway and still getting every step-back and drive his heart desires.

The Jazz had the second-best defensive rating in the league during the regular season (105.2), but thanks to Harden they have the second-worst in the playoffs (120).

The Beard is making a statement, and he’s clearly ready for the Warriors.
