    I know a lot of people have been calling for Harden to get some rest, and while it does obviously help prevent injuries, an argument can be made it wouldn’t necessarily help his overall game.

    Check out these stats he’s put up this year on the 2nd game of back to backs...

    10 G, 41.9 PPG on 45.8/42.8/90.2 shooting, 9.0 assists, 6.8 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.0 block per game. Every stat is significantly better than this year in total.

    I’ve seen people mention how good he’s been in B2Bs but wasn’t aware it was THIS good...those numbers are insane. If only the playoffs had less rest and more B2Bs!

    He’s very much a rhythm player. When he’s on there’s no excuse to not get him 40 shots

    Some odd reason I feel he is better on Fridays and Saturdays

    Which might explain his playoff lapses at times. More time between games. No back-to-backs.

    He’s been pretty much the same every day of the week besides Tuesdays and Sundays.

    Absolutely. It’s crazy that 43% 3PT in the stats I put up is on 13.3 threes a game...so he’s also been taking MORE threes in those games.

    Not necessarily in the playoffs. The extra rest helped him in Game 1 against GS in the last season. It's too bad he didn't get much help from the
    rest of the teammates.

    I joke that if the NBA scheduled us for a back-to-back-to-back, Harden would break Wilt's 100 points in third game.

    Well, I say I joke, but I can't say with 100% confidence I'd be wrong either.

    Harden needs to go catch a game at his local YMCA then.

    Amazing. But small samples.
