Harden collected 29 points (9-20 FG, 6-12 3PT, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a 105-83 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The fact that the 29 points tied for his second-lowest mark of the month shows just how dominant Harden is right now, as he's averaging 37.6 points per game in November. What's most encouraging about his last two games is the fact that he's doing this sort of damage with Chris Paul in the lineup, as it's clear Paul wont hurt Harden's value. To further solidify his dominance, Harden has hit 47-straight free-throws across his last four games.

Harden totaled 48 points (12-22 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 18-18 FT), seven assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 34 minutes during Thursday's 142-116 victory over the Suns.

EDGE Analysis

Harden tore apart the Phoenix defense, scoring at will and basically toying with the opposition. He has been ridiculous this season, quickly putting to rest any doubts there were over his stock declining. Chris Paul returned to action today, and will likely take away some of Harden's assists. On the flipside, however, this should create some more open looks for Harden, as well as giving him some much-needed rest during the games. There is no reason to believe he won't still be a top-five fantasy player come seasons end.

Harden scored 26 points (9-21 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding 15 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's 118-95 win over the Pacers.

EDGE Analysis

He had a double-double by halftime, but Harden took his foot off the gas after the break as the Rockets cruised to an easy win. He now has five double-doubles and two triple-doubles in 14 games, and he's once again averaging more than 10 dimes a night after posting a career-high 11.2 assists per game in 2016-17.

James Harden accumulated 38 points (11-25 FG, 6-14 3PT, 10-14 FT), four rebounds and eight assists in a 111-97 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

After a semi-slow start to the season, Harden has really picked it up recently. In fact, Harden is averaging 36 points, 5.0 rebounds, 10.6 assists and 2.4 steals per game across his last five outings. What makes that even more impressive is the fact that Harden had yet to reach 30 points in his first seven games, as he's clearly out of that minor rut. It remains to be seen if Harden can continue to do that when Chris Paul (knee) eventually returns, but it looks as though Harden is well on his way to another monster season.

Harden tallied 35 points (8-21 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 13-14 FT), 13 assists, 11 rebounds, 5 steals and a blocked shot across 43 minutes in Thursday's 117-113 win over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Harden notched his second triple-double of the year, in classic fashion, drilling threes one minute and forcing turnovers the next. IT will be scary to see what happens when Chris Paul gets healthy, as the 9-year veteran seems to just get better and better. Harden shows up in the top five in the league in points per game, assists per game and total three-pointers made. Consider yourself lucky if you nabbed him in a head-to-head league, and he's worth spending up for in DFS anytime he's active.

Harden was excused from Tuesday's practice for personal reasons, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's been no word on the nature or seriousness of the issue. For now, it seems safe to assume he'll play during Thursday's game against the Cavaliers. Fantasy owners may want to keep an eye out just in case his status does change, however.

Harden had 56 points (19-25 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 13 assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 35 minutes during Sunday's 137-110 win over the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Harden finished with career highs in scoring and made field goals, and he was extremely efficient in the blowout win. Chris Paul (knee) was taking shots at Saturday's practice and could be back in a couple weeks. However, Harden is the clear top dog for Houston.

Harden scored 29 points (8-15 FG, 6-11 3 PT, 7-10 FT) to go with three rebounds, 11 assists and one steal across 30 minutes in Friday's 119-104 win against Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Harden turned in his best shooting performance of the season, hitting 53.3 percent of his shots from the floor. Over the last three games, the Houston guard hovered between 31 and 39 percent from the field. Harden made the most of his resurgent shooting performance on Friday by drilling six three-pointers. Harden will look to replicate this performance against Utah on Sunday.

Harden registered 31 points (9-23 FG, 6-17 3Pt, 7-9 FT), nine assists and five rebounds across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 119-97 win over the Knicks.

EDGE Analysis

Any night where Harden doesn't hit a double-double might be considered an off night, but Harden's poor shooting (39.1 percent) coupled with seven turnovers further justifies that statement. Still, Harden did lead the team in scoring, but everyone in the starting lineup provided support in the win with every starter recording double-digit points on the night. Harden will look for a better stat line against the Hawks on Friday after a day of rest.

Harden collected 29 points (8-21 FG, 3-7 3 PT, 10-12 FT) to go along with four rebounds, seven assists and four steals over 38 minutes in Monday's 115-107 loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The charity stripe was Harden's best friend on Monday. The point guard's below average shooting night was buoyed by 12 attempts from the foul line. However, he still tied a season-high with 29 points against Philadelphia. In the absence of Chris Paul (knee), Harden is thriving with an average of 26.0 points through eight games.
