Jalen Rose explains why he believes James Harden will soon score 90 points in a single game


James Harden is doing spectacular things so far this season, and often at times looks like a one-man wrecking crew. Harden is the early MVP of the regular season, averaging some pretty mindboggling numbers with 39.2 points while at the same time dishing out almost 8 assists per game. In the past couple of games individually, he's been scoring with tremendous ease, and it seems nobody can stop him because Rockets won 8 straight games in a row.

That propelled Jalen Rose to describe Harden as a unique scorer in NBA history while hosting on the show "Get Up".

"The media appreciates it. This is why for the past couple of seasons, James Harden has in been top 3 MVP candidates conversation. I call him the most unique scorer in NBA history. He's lead the league in total threes made, total free-throws made, in assists and total points. No other player at any point in their careers will be able to say that. That's how dynamic James Harden is."

Rose continued and said there might be a possibility James Harden scores 90 points in a single game, which is pretty unbelievable when you think about it. However, according to Jalen, Harden is taking such a large number of shoots, especially from three, which means there might be a game where he goes off. Whether this will happen or not, Harden's scoring for the past couple of weeks has been outstanding despite the fact he is putting up a lot of minutes on a nightly basis.

"I'm telling you he's going to have a night where he gets on fire. I'm going to say it; he's going to have a 90 point game this year. I know it sounds crazy, but he goes for it every night. James Harden will score 90 points. He takes 40 shots per game, 20 threes, and at one point, he will start making them. James Harden will score 90 points in a game this year!"
