James Harden once again did something no NBA player has

James Harden once again did something no NBA player has

James Harden has put up some big numbers in his first two games as a Brooklyn Net, eclipsing the 30-point and 10-assist mark in the 122-115 win over the Orlando Magic on Saturday and in the 125-123 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday.

With his 34 points against the Bucks, Harden became the first player to ever score 30-plus points in each of his first two games as a Net. Harden also joined D’Angelo Russell (March, 2019), Devin Harris (March, 2008) and Stephon Marbury (May, 1999) as the fourth Net to record 30-plus points and 10-plus assists in consecutive games.

Additionally, Harden is the only player in NBA history to every post back-to-back 30-point, 10-assist games in his first two games with a new team.

Harden reached the 34-point mark point mark on 13 of 25 shooting from the floor (3-for-10 from deep) and 5-for-6 shooting at the free-throw line. Along with his 12 assists, Harden had six rebounds and six turnovers against the Bucks.
