Oklahoma City’s James Harden was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year Thursday after leading all bench players in scoring this season.

Harden averaged 16.8 points on a career-best 49 percent shooting this season. He recorded his first career 40-point game last month in a win at Phoenix.

He may be best remembered by non-basketball fans for the shot he took from the Los Angeles Lakers‘ Metta World Peace in the final week of the regular season that left him with a concussion.

Harden was able to return in time for the play-offs and was the leading scorer in the Thunders fourth-quarter comeback win over Dallas to clinch Game 4 and the opening round sweep.
