Every other game, James Harden is doing something no Nets players has in a significant period of time. The latest example of that came on Tuesday, Harden’s first chance to play in front of Brooklyn fans at Barclays Center as a member of the Nets.

By the end of the first half of Tuesday’s game against the Sacramento Kings, the 2021 NBA All-Star guard had 18 points, 10 assists and fie rebounds to his name, achieving his NBA-leading 20th points-assists double-double of the season and extending his franchise-record of consecutive games with a double-double to 13. Sixteen of Harden’s 2020-21 double-doubles have come in a Nets uniform — in just 19 games.

Additionally, Harden is the first Net since Jason Kidd in 2006 to register 15-plus points, 10-plus assists and five-plus rebounds in a half. No NBA player has posted such a line in a half this season.
