Austin Rivers on James Harden: 'He's unguardable, man, come on bro'

Watch: James Harden's Clutch Three Closes Out Wild Game Between Rockets and Warriors

With just 30 seconds left in the extra period, the game was still tied 132-132. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are among the top candidates, as well.

Although Giannis Antetokounmpo is Harden's biggest competition for the award at this moment, the evaluation goes a bit deeper than that.

Since dropping 50 points on December 13, Harden is averaging 41.1 points, 9.5 assists, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game. When Paul went down with a hamstring strain in mid-to-late December, many expected things to come apart at the seams for Houston.

Tonight, the Warriors threw away a game in which they led the Houston Rockets by 20 points.

Harden's game, his second triple-double of the week, also put the cap on a ridiculous run that has seen him score at least 40 points in five games straight while nailing an insane 37 3-pointers over that span. According to NBA.com, Harden has already attempted 206 step back 3-pointers this season, of which he has made 88 (42.7 percent).

She then added to the Sun Online : "Like the days of Nazi Germany, remember - first they come for me, then they come for you".

Harden described his confidence as being "through the roof", adding that it has been that way for some time now.

I don't usually agree with Reggie Miller, but seriously, HOW DO YOU MISS THAT?!

Aside from the scoring, James' numbers rival Harden across the board. He hasn't scored less than 30 points in a game since December 11.

Harden, who was named Western Conference Player of the Month earlier in the day, has gotten exhausted of hearing complaints about all the whistles that are blown in his favor.
