Steph Curry was chatting with Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer during practice for Team Giannis on Saturday morning, and NBA TV's mics picked up a pretty fascinating conversation between the two, with Curry relaying to Budenholzer a conversation he and Houston Rockets star James Harden had earlier in the day. Harden already won NBA MVP last season and it appears as though he is well on his way to repeating.

"I was just trying to find ways to win and the points were just adding up", said Harden, in reference to his 30-point scoring streak. "If you take one player and put him on the top of the key. the defense can key on that, particularly in the playoffs, and that's easy to defend".

"The scoring streak is obviously incredible, but it's something that I just had to do because of our situation", Harden said of his scoring streak, via ESPN.

"The scoring streak is obviously awesome, but it's something that I just had to do because of our situation", Harden explained.

Harden has averaged 41.5 points during his streak and has helped the Rockets get to a 33-24 record in the Western Conference.

This play happened in the third quarter, when George made a very good impression of Harden's signature step-back 3-pointer against him. "The points is something that I had to do because we had guys injured and out". We played the same way previous year. "We played the same exact way previous year and gave ourselves a chance to get to the (NBA) Finals".
