James Harden sets new NBA single-season record for turnovers. Can He Still be MVP?


James Harden is running the ball at 34.1 percent of the Houston Rockets’ possessions (fifth in NBA) on a game to game basis, while sitting atop the league in assists per game, has led MVP candidate James Harden being turnover prone to turning the ball over at a historic rate for a second year in a row.

With six turnovers Wednesday night in Houston’s 115-108 loss to the visiting Utah Jazz, Harden has established a new single-season record for total turnovers with 376, breaking the mark he set in 2015-16 of 374.

Harden played a full 82-game slate that season, and has 17 games to go this season to add to his already 376. This could hurt his MVP campaign.
