NEW YORK – Five games into his tenure with the Brooklyn Nets, James Harden is starting to score his pass or Rubik’s Cube.
After scoring just 10 points through three quarters on Monday against the Miami Heat, Harden scored 10 points in the final quarter and finished with 20 points and eight assists in the Nets’ 98–85 win. Attempting to solve his role puzzle, Harden said, is the “best part” of his first few weeks in Brooklyn.
“I was in a role for eight years, controlling the ball, dominating the ball,” Harden said referring to his time in Houston with the Rockets. “It’s a different experience for me now, but it’s still great.”
