James Harden Makes NBA History In Nets Debut

Sign In

James Harden went his last four games as a Houston Rocket failing to record more than 20 points.

His first performance for the Brooklyn Nets? Quite the opposite.

The eight-time NBA All-Star on Saturday made his debut with Brooklyn against the Orlando Magic at the Barclays Center, and made it quite memorable.


Seriously, though. With his 32 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds, Harden made league history as the first player to record a 30-point triple-double in their first game with a new team, per ESPN sports & Info.
