James Harden is Player of the Week just days after the worst start in NBA history

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets went 0-3 in the first week of the 2015-16 NBA season while James Harden shot 12 of 54 (22.2%) in those three losses. It was a historically bad start.

In the week since the Rockets have rolled through 4 straight wins and now sit at 4-3 with Harden going 45 of 97 (46.4) to set the tone and garner himself the Western Conference Player of the Week award.


For the week, he averaged 38.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.50 steals in 41.0 minutes per game while shooting 46.4% from the floor, 34.9% from 3-point range and 84.5% from the line.
