For the first time ever, the beard was feared by the Thunder. James Harden’s first two games playing against his old mates: 42 total points on 9-of-33 shooting. Tonight? A career-high 46 on 14-of-19, including 7-of-8 from 3. Sixteen of those points coming in furious fourth quarter comeback that erased a 14-point Thunder lead with seven minutes left and ended in a frustrating 122-119 loss to Houston.
