James Harden made history on the night he made his debut in a Nets jersey. Facing the Orlando Magic, Harden got 32 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists, getting his first triple-double of the season, while also becoming the first player in NBA history to blast 30+ triple-doubles in his debut with his new owner.
Kevin Durant also had 42 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists, hitting 16 of his 26 shots, 5 of 8 from 3-point range and 5 of 5 from the free throw line, as efficient as ever. When he broke the Bucks’ all-time record held by Bernard King with 9 consecutive games of 25+ cuts.
As former co-stars, the offensive end was unimaginable when the two of them linked hands… KD has an amazing undifferentiated singles ability, with or without the ball belong to the all-time top, Harden is the top offensive engine in the guard line, step back three points stove. If the three Thunderbolts had not disintegrated, to this day, and how many miracles will be worth associating with.
Harden needs the Bucks, a team that he can be exceptionally excited about, teammates like KD who can give him tremendous support, and a team that is hungry for a winning environment, and the ability to match it. The seamless fit of Harden and Durant has also delighted Bucks fans, but as Irving’s return nears, so do the variables. The “beard” joined, the Nets blew the charge to the championship attack, after the hard battle then how to play, depending on the return of Irving.
