James Harden Has Increased PPG Off Isos From 6.6 To 10.6 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 13, 2017 6:02 pm

James Harden has led the NBA in points off isolation possessions over the past two seasons at 6.4 and 6.6 points per game.

This season, Harden is scoring 10.6 points per game off isolations. Harden is scoring 1.28 points per possession on isolations. 

"Last year, I thought he was unbelievable," said Mike D'Antoni. "Now I guess I've got to come up with a new word. I don't know what he is this year. He's gone up another level, which I didn't think was possible."

Harden has hit 26 of his 46 step-back three-point attempts this season. Harden has been perfecting that shot for years. Harden only attempted 13 of those three-pointers during his three seasons with the Thunder. During his first season, Harden took 33 step-back three-pointers and hit 30.3 percent of those attempts. Harden attempted 70 last season and has been hitting them at a 40 percent clip over the past two seasons.
