That’s the third time The Beard has won the award this season.

He’s done it again!

James Harden won the Western Conference Player of the Week Award for the third time this season, padding an already impressive MVP-caliber campaign.

Harden led the Rockets to a 3-0 week with wins over the Nets, Pacers, and Lakers. He averaged 34 PPG and nine assists in the three games. He also boasted an incredible 3.0 assists-to-turnover ratio, which showcases how well he has taken care of the ball this season.

Harden won the award alongside LeBron James in the Eastern Conference, and he is also the guy he shared the Player of the Month Award for November. Not too shabby for the Beard and I’m sure he’s got room in his trophy case for a few more weekly awards.
