James Harden’s debut with the Brooklyn Nets was historic. And he and his new franchise couldn’t have dreamed up a better beginning.
In his first game since the blockbuster trade that brought him over from Houston, Harden went for 32 points, 14 assists, 12 rebounds and four steals as the Nets won their third straight, 122-115, over Orlando at Barclays Center.
Harden became the seventh player to notch a triple-double in his team debut and the first player ever to notch a 30-point triple-double in his debut. His 14 assists were the most ever for a Nets player in his first game. He almost had a quadruple-double with nine turnovers, something he wasn’t pleased about.
Asked what that all meant by Michael Grady of the YES Network, Harden said “Nothing, I’m just glad we came away with the win. Those stats don’t mean anything, I just try to do everything on the court in my ability to help the team win. I’m just glad we came away with a win, now we gotta get ready for the next game.”
