Very interesting to hear. I'll keep tabs on them to see if they can keep it up the rest of the season. Pretty fun bunch, just going out there and having fun. Not much in terms of expectations are placed on them.
Harden has been very solid off the bench so far this year both on offense and defense. He is being used as sort of a utility player, making plays with his versatility, whether it be shooting or passing (He's 4th in the NBA in assist to TO ratio). His numbers aren't huge, but they aren't asking him to fill the stat sheet. Coach Brooks trusts him out there because he is smart and doesn't make many mistakes. He is very versatile and I think will log some minutes at PG at spots this year.
