01/17/2021 James Harden debuts with ‘triple-double’ in Brooklyn Nets NORTH AMERICA SPORTS UNITED STATES BROOKLYN NETS

MADRID, 17 (EUROPA PRESS)

The American guard James Harden has starred this morning in the NBA in an extraordinary debut with the Brooklyn Nets, in a duel in which he has put on track, with a 32-point triple-double, the victory against the Orlando Magic (122-115).

Unaware of the controversy due to his state of form in his last appearances, ‘La Barba’ emerged strongly at the Barclays Center to sign 32 points, 14 assists, 12 rebounds, 4 steals and a block in 40 minutes -with 8 of 18 in shots from the field, including 3 of 10 triples, and 13 of 15 in free throws – vital along with 42 goals from Kevin Durant to achieve the victory and neutralize the ‘double-double’ of 34 points and 10 rebounds from Nikola Vucevic.

Thus, the former Houston Rockets player became the seventh player in NBA history to achieve a ‘triple-double’ in his first game in a franchise and the first to do so scoring at least 30 points. Additionally, he broke Kevin Porter’s 1977 record (13) for most assists in a first game for the Nets.

All this in a meeting in which Kyrie Irving did not participate, out of health and safety protocol. With this, the Nets (8-6) link three consecutive victories, while Orlando (6-7) drags five losses in a row.
