James Harden becomes the first player to record 30+ points, 15+ assists, and 10+ rebounds with zero turnovers in a game since turnovers were first recorded in 1977-78! Check out his highlights from Brooklyn’s 124-113 overtime W in San Antonio.
Per ESPN, “We have to implement the phrase ‘get used to it,'” Irving said with a smile.
It didn’t faze Irving that — according to Elias Sports Bureau research — Harden became the first player to record 30 points, 15 assists and at least 10 rebounds with zero turnovers since individual turnovers were first tracked in 1977-78. Harden finished with 14 rebounds on the night.
“When James is being James,” Irving said, “it makes our job a lot easier. And so we got to get used to somebody special like that, things like that in terms of breaking records. So, I can’t wait to be right alongside of him, my name in Nets history — and all the guys on our team where we’re just breaking records as a team, and then individually we’re stacking up with some of the best to ever play.”
