Lowe's 10 Things: James Harden looking like a QB

Harden never got his due as a passing savant before this season. That was partly his fault. But this season, he's shown off his ability to pinpoint accurate outlet passes to execute a fast break.

ESPN Stats and Information  

James Harden is creating 56.5 points per game this season (points per game plus points per game from assists). That pace is just shy of Tiny Archibald's record for the most points created per game in a season in NBA history (56.8).

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Former New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Gordon admits he was frustrated by his role at times in New Orleans and says joining the Houston Rockets has been great for him. Gordon will compete in Saturday's 3-Point Contest.

On what he makes of the Russ-KD feud, ex-Thunder guard James Harden of the Rockets told SportsCenter: "I don't understand what is going on. I don't understand. Obviously, they feel some type of way. It's part of the game. Part of a guy going to a new team."

Marc J. Spears The Undefeated 

Will you try to be a mediator between Russ and KD this weekend, ex-Thunder guard James Harden of the Rockets told SportsCenter: "I'm staying out of it. It's not my place. I'm on a totally different team now. I know them both very well. If they need advice, I will give it to them. But I'm staying out of it."
