Report: HOU will offer Harden an extension

Harden accepted an extension with the club last summer that put him under contract through 2019, although if he waits another year before committing to another extension with Houston, he would be able to sign a five-year deal somewhere in the ballpark of $217 million.

    Moses Malone Jr. suing James Harden

    According to a report from Fox 26 in Houston, Malone Jr. is alleging that Harden paid a group of people $20,000 in cash to attack and rob Malone at a club last year. Apparently, Malone claims Harden was offended by a Facebook post from Malone that criticized Harden. Harden's attorney denies all charges on behalf of his client.

    Rockets may rest Harden during regular season

    Harden played poorly and looked strangely lethargic in the Rockets 39-point home loss to the Spurs in Game 6. He scored just 10 points on 2-of-11 shooting and committed six turnovers. He was also held scoreless and turned the ball over three times in the overtime period of Game 5. D'Antoni acknowledged that fatigue may have played a factor. "Maybe he does need to take a game off here and there. 'Hey, you're nicked up a little bit, don't play,'" said D'Antoni.

    James Harden scores 10 in ugly blowout loss

    It was a really, really bad first half for Harden, who turned the ball over five times with just two makes from the field and didn't even attempt a field goal in the first half. With Harden's woeful time down the stretch in Game 5 coupled with this dud, one has to think if Harden was either hurting or maybe something wasn't right with him. The Rockets did have an unwritten agreement to play as much as they could during the season to develop their chemistry, and also going with a seven-man rotation in Game 5, so it's fair to say Harden just wore down. Plus, he was passing up open looks a ton during this game. All this said, Harden had an MVP-caliber season and will be in the mix for a top pick in fantasy next year.

    James Harden triple-doubles in Game 5 loss

    Despite the triple-double, Harden faded down the stretch and his potential game-tying 3-pointer was blocked by Manu Ginobili on Houston's final possession. Harden failed to score in overtime and was sloppy with the ball at times, finishing with nine turnovers. Fatigue was likely a factor, though it didn't help that Kawhi Leonard and Jonathon Simmons were all over him for most of the night. With the Rockets trailing 2-3, Harden will look to force a Game 7 with the series shifting back to Houston for Game 6 on Thursday.

    James Harden posts 28/12/5 in Game 4 victory

    Harden had a total of five assists in Game 3, a tally he matched in the first quarter tonight as the Rockets roared out to a 12-point lead. He banged knees with Patty Mills in the third quarter and was in obvious pain, grabbing the outside of his left knee, but it didn't cost him any time. He should be fine for Tuesday's critical Game 5 in San Antonio.

    James Harden drops 43 points in loss to Spurs

    He was back into a good groove on offense and went to the line 11 times to match his total in the first two games combined. Even with Harden passing out of drives, the Rockets just couldn't get open looks from three, making just 12-of-39 from deep in this loss. Plus, they only had nine fast-break points, which has also been a big part of how the Rockets score. The Spurs seem to have a good plan to limit this offense to a season-low 92 points, so basically the Rockets will need to make tons of threes to win this series.

    James Harden says he's fine

    He did also suffer what looked like a minor hip injury on Wednesday, but he said he was fine on Thursday. The Spurs have done a great job in defending Harden, especially keeping him to just 11 free throw attempts in the two games combined. Harden should be all set for Friday's Game 3 in Houston.

    James Harden shoots 3-of-17 in Game 2 loss

    Harden tweaked a hip tonight, according to coach Mike D'Antoni, who insisted that he's not worried. "[Harden] is fine," he said, adding that the MVP candidate's health is the "least of my worries." San Antonio found success by rotating Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green against Harden defensively, complicating the chess match of this second-round series. Expect a bounce-back performance from Harden during Friday's home game.

    Harden scores 20 w/ 14 dimes in Game 1 win

    One of San Antonio's top priorities is to limit Harden's free throw attempts after he averaged 14.6 FTAs in Round 1, but that's basically all the Spurs got right -- he got to the line just five times tonight. However, he was still dominant and pick-and-rolled the Spurs to death, dishing out a playoff career-high 14 assists with one board, four steals and three triples in 31 minutes. Harden didn't even touch the floor down the stretch with the game all but over by the third quarter, so he should be fresh for Game 2 on Wednesday.
