What is wrong with James Harden? The NBA’s leading scorer has looked far from that recently and is now dealing with a thigh injury. I don’t mean to trim The Beard while he’s down, so to speak, but some of these shooting nights are just not very Harden-esque. He’s scored over 30 points in just one of the past five games. I mean ... 13.6% from 3-point land in that stretch. What is happening? Injury aside, Harden needs to find his shot and find it fast. Anyway, now that that rant is over, let’s take a look at betting lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for the eight games on Sunday.

Rockets @ Nuggets (+1) 3:30 p.m. ET
Raptors @ Spurs (+3, 223) 4:00 p.m. ET
