Harden might have given general manager Sam Presti some seller’s remorse with his performance on Wednesday night. Harden flourished in his first game as a full-time starter racking up 37 points, six rebounds, and 12 assists. Along with fellow newcomers Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, Harden makes up an exciting young core that suddenly makes the Rockets look very relevant.
