Lakers vs Rockets James Harden Over 8.5 assists

Basketball - NBA - 27 Oct 03:30

This tip is for James Harden to get more than 8 assists tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers. For anybody who wants to find this bet it is listed as PLAYER A ASSISTS on Paddy Power site.

In my opinion James Harden will most likely average around 10 assists per game game this season so getting 8.5 over here is a great deal.

The main reason I think Harden will average so much assists is the new system Houston will be playing. Their new coach D'Antoni likes to play at an incredible fast pace and he likes to have a guy like Harden run all the offense.(he had Nash in Phoenix) Nash was amazing in Phoenix with D'Antoni averaging over 10 assists per game in all the seasons they were together.

Harden will now have the ball in his hands at the start of all Houston attacks. D'Antoni said many times that Harden is their point guard and he should get a lot of assists considering his great play making skills.

Beverly was Rockets PG last season but he will miss the start of the season due an injury. This should increase Harden assists even more.

Harden had 7.5 assists per game last season despite the fact he did not had many guys to pass the ball too. Now he will have great 3 point shooters like Anderson and Gordon around him and assists will come easier.

Harden had at least 8 assists in 5 of the 6 preseason games. The only time he was under 8.5 assists was a game when he played less than 25 minutes and finished with 8 assists.
