After starting the 2019-20 season on a slump, James Harden unleashed all of his offense against the Washington Wizards.
Through his first three games, the Beard was shooting 15% from three-point range. He made 6 total threes in those games, but equaled that for this performance. Harden was back to his old self with stepbacks catching defenders off-guard. James also took advantage of soft interior Wizards defense by slashing to the hoop for easy layups.
The game ended 159-158, with Harden making the go-ahead free throw for the win. The 317 total points were the most in an NBA game decided by one-point. Harden was two points shy of his career high, but did pass out 9 assists along with his 59 points.
The sneakers the Beard rocked for this historic game was the adidas Harden Vol. 4. This shoe features LIGHTSTRIKE cushioning that provides a balance of responsiveness and step-in comfort, while still being lightweight. A midfoot band draws eyes while also locking in James’ foot to assist with all of his stop-and-go moves.
James rocked the Scarlet Red version of the shoe, which you can find HERE.
