James Harden, known for his scoring prowess, has hit a rough patch recently. As the Los Angeles Clippers navigate their late-season challenges, star player Paul George weighs in on Harden’s struggles. In a recent interview, George emphasized the need for unity and resilience within the team.

Tomer Azarly shared George’s tweet: “He’s one of the elite scorers. It’s not much that needs to be said. He’s one of the best at putting the ball in the basket. It’s just one of those nights, some nights are tough. But he’ll be better. He’s got every tool in his tool set to get shots and create and score the ball. So it’s more so just letting him know we all in this together. We all in this together. We’ll climb ourselves out of this hole. But again, it just starts with getting this next win.”

However, since February 7th, Harden’s scoring output has dipped significantly. Averaging just 15.5 points per game on 40.4% shooting (including 33.7% from beyond the arc), he has faced challenges finding his rhythm. His recent 6-point game against the Kings exemplifies the struggle he’s currently experiencing.

Paul George acknowledges that Harden possesses all the tools necessary to break out of this slump. As teammates, they are in this together. George’s message is clear: Harden’s struggles are temporary, and the team will rally to climb out of their current situation.

George prefers addressing team issues internally rather than airing them publicly. While Coach Tyronn Lue’s recent criticism of the team’s effort raised eyebrows, George believes that unity and toughness should be cultivated within the locker room first.
