James Harden is one of the key pieces for the Brooklyn Nets. There is no doubt that they have missed him in their lineup, as he was out with a hamstring injury throughout the majority of the Nets' series against the Milwaukee Bucks. The series is now 2-2, and Game 5 will be crucial.
It seems as though the Brooklyn Nets will get their star back today, despite him potentially still being hampered. Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Harden playing in Game 5, and it seems as though that fact was welcomed by many Brooklyn Nets fans.
Playing James Harden will boost the Nets' chances of winning, as Harden is an elite scorer and playmaker. Harden's offensive presence will allow Kevin Durant to have fewer playmaking duties, and allow Durant to do what he does best: score the basketball. This should be an interesting game, and whoever wins today will take command of the series.
