The results? Entering Monday, Harden was averaging a league-high 11.6 assists per game, to go along with his still-prolific scoring (27.8 per game). Meanwhile, the Rockets were 17-7, tied for third in the Western Conference.
The Jump asked the question above. Now #PulseOfTheNation wants your opinion:
Yeah, it's a tough question, what with Russell Westbrook posting video game numbers (31.1 points, 11.0 assists and 10.9 rebounds per game entering Monday); Stephen Curry still being Stephen Curry (although a bit subdued, with the addition of Kevin Durant); and Chris Paul registering a league-best real plus-minus of 9.51 (trust us, that's really good).
And that doesn't even get into other big-name point guards, such as Kyrie Irving of the defending-champion Cleveland Cavaliers, deceptively elite Kyle Lowry and offensive whiz Damian Lillard, among others.
Take your pick ...
