On the best roll of his career, James Harden has returned his name to the conversations about MVP. That includes his own willingness to openly seek the honor for a second-consecutive season.

Asked if he is “hungry” to win the award again, Harden said, “I need it. I need it for sure. And I’m going to get it.

“Individually, I got to bring it every night and make sure the guys around me in that locker room are on the same level,” Harden said. “It’s a great feeling. Individually, I got to make sure I’m on my A game every night, and that’s not just scoring. That’s being a leader every night. That’s making sure I’m communicating with my guys and we’re putting ourselves in positions to win games.”

Harden has scored at least 30 points in 10-consecutive games, averaging 40.8 points per game in that stretch, and at least 40 points in his past four games. His streak of eight-consecutive games with at least 35 points and five assists in the longest in NBA history.
