Following another spectacular performance in Brooklyn’s 113-11 victory over Detroit, James Harden said he feels like he’s the NBA’s Most Valuable Player this season.

Playing without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant again, Harden led the Nets to their 17th win in their last 20 games, finishing with 44 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists.

After the game, a reporter asked Harden if he feels like he belongs in the MVP conversation.
