James Harden and Ben Simmons had one of the best battles of the NBA season thus far, each notching triple-doubles in this hard-fought contest in Houston. The Rockets were able to edge the Philadelphia 76ers behind 44 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists from Harden, but his teammates stepped up to the challenge as well. In particular, centre Clint Capela had a monster performance, outplaying 76ers big man Joel Embiid to make a major difference in the final outcome.
Prior to the start of the game, 76ers head coach Brett Brown said Harden "may be the greatest scorer in the history of our game." Harden backed that statement by putting on a scoring clinic against one of the best defensive teams in the Free Live NBA Stream. The Sixers tried trapping Harden at halfcourt but the guard was finding his teammates for open shots, making Philly's defence pay. They went away from the halfcourt trap and the league's leading scorer started attacking, again, making Philly's defence pay.
