James Harden has far and away the most upside of anybody on the slate. The Heat are a decent defensive team, but Harden is pretty much matchup proof. He has posted some huge games this season and realistically has 100 fantasy point upside. If this one stays close, Harden should be flirting with a triple-double. Harden is sitting at fourth in the league right now with a usage rate of 35.9% and an offensive rating of 118.9. Those numbers mean that he is used a ton and is one of the most efficient offensive players n the NBA. Even though the Heat present a fairly tough matchup, Harden is really the only guy to pay up for tonight and is still a good GPP play.
