James Harden on his 19 free-throws vs. Pacers: ‘That’s just me being aggressive’

It was an uplifting moment, at least on James Harden’s part, that his free-throw attempts have finally skyrocketed after the low numbers from the past few games. 

Speaking after a 105-98 home victory against the Indiana Pacers, the 2018 MVP said that those 16 drained shots out of 19 attempts came from the aggressiveness that he’s been missing in this early part of the season.

“That’s just me being aggressive. First couple of games, I wasn’t being aggressive,” Harden said via Matt Brooks of Nets Daily. 

Harden’s 29 points propelled the Nets into its third win of the season, and this high-scoring mark could possibly signal that the Beard is finally regaining the confidence he have lost after a downing 2021 campaign due to a hamstring injury.

“I keep saying it. Every game, I’ll feel better.”

And when asked about James Harden and its amount of tries on the charity stripe recently, head coach Steve Nash told reporters that they will continue to figure it out as a team — a possibility of maximizing what they will observe to extract more points. 

“I think we’re still trying to figure that out and I think the officials are too.”

The Nets will continue to defend their home as Detroit Pistons will land in Brooklyn for a duel on October 30.
