Just get the f- out of his way. "We're sitting him out this back-to-back and he's definitely going to play Friday in Houston", Nurse said Tuesday. He has his work cut out for him.

The Houston Rockets have gone 15-6 since Harden has had to take the load for Paul/Capela and the alarming aspect they're 4-4 in the last eight games, certainly indicating that this historic performance of Harden's is starting to wear on him. Now, on occasion, Harden does embellish contact, but that is the National Basketball Association.

The Houston Rockets have had a lot of drama this season from punches to the face, to suspensions, to injuries, to Hall of Famers not fitting in, to contract disputes many inconsistencies for the Rockets, there has been one constant, and that has been the level of play for the reigning league MVP, James Harden. He averaged 30.4 points per game while having his highest effective field goal percentage as a Rocket at 54.1% and a +7.3 for Houston when on the floor, which was the highest of his career.
