Harden posted a triple-double (32 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists) and Durant called his debut ‘incredible’.
“Man it was incredible. You could see him trying to figure out the best way to play early on. He just got into his mode and was being aggressive, trying to score; that opened up the game for the rest of us.
I can’t wait to have our full team together, seeing what types of shots we can get for our shooters. It’s going to be tough for anyone to double us & trap us in the pick-and-roll,” Durant said about Harden, via Brian Lewis of New York Post.
Durant (42 points) and Harden combined for 74 points in their first game together in almost nine years.
