James Harden finished the game against the Pistons with a triple-double of 20 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, helping the 76ers win (123-111).
It is not unusual to see the former NBA MVP record triple-doubles. With a whole bunch of players producing record-setting performances, Harden was asked whether he thinks he gets enough credit.
“I don’t need the credit,” said Harden after thinking about it for a bit. “I don’t really care. I guess people give credit to who they want to give credit to. You know what I mean? Like, they pick and choose who they want to give credit to.”
This season Harden is averaging 22 points, 6.3 rebounds and 10.8 assists in 37.7 minutes per game.
