Shook Ankles: James Harden Makes Avery Bradley Stumble
In one of the more fascinating individual match-ups you’ll see all season, Avery Bradley (a top 3 on-ball perimeter defender) guarded James Harden (one of the four or five hardest perimeter players to defend in the league) for much of Friday night’s Rockets/Celtics game. For the most part, Bradley stifled Harden better than anybody yet this year. But as we all know, it’s an offensive player’s league. That’s why this happened. Afterwards it was unanimously decided by me that both players are still elite in the area they’re known for being dominant.
