All eyes will be on the Brooklyn Nets vs. Houston Rockets game on Wednesday night, as James Harden plays in Houston for the first time since being traded earlier this season. It'll surely be a night with emotions running high, and Harden will likely be on a mission to impress when playing his former team.

The public is already siding with a commanding Brooklyn win in this one, and oddsmakers are forecasting a huge scoring night for Harden as well.

James Harden Projected Stats Tonight in Rockets Return

The over/under for Harden's point total tonight is set at 30.5, per player prop bets from FanDuel Sportsbook. That's a great scoring night for anyone in the league, and while Harden is certainly capable of hitting that, there's no telling how returning to Houston will impact his play.

On the season, the Nets star is averaging 25.2 points per game. He's scored 31 or more points in eight of his 30 contests this year, so it's not a nightly occurrence even for a former league MVP.

Still, he does come into this game on a recent tear, averaging 29.4 PPG over the last eight games, all of which have been without Kevin Durant in the lineup.

With KD out again, Harden will be looked to pick up the scoring slack. And against a depleted Rockets team, he'll have the chance to hit the over in this one.
