Prior to the Houston Rockets’ 131-106 lopsided home loss to the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night, Rockets guard James Harden said that the Warriors “ain’t even that good” in an attempt to get his team amped up for their contest against the team with the best record in the Western Conference. Listen to Harden’s statement below:
With the Warriors being the top team in the Western Conference, Harden and the have good reason to be ‘confident’ about how they fair against their conference foes. They are only 5.5 games out of the top spot in the west.
Golden State is 3-0 against Houston this season, and all of their victories have been by double digits. Against the Warriors this year, Harden is averaging 22.7 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game on 39.4% shooting from the field.
