Warriors rookie Jordan Bell blocks James Harden in Drew League game

When Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets on June 28, it came with some skepticism from the outside. How would he and James Harden – two ball dominant guards – be able to work together on the court? On Sunday, the duo got off to a good start when they took the floor together in a Drew League game. Paul finished with 13 points and 10 assists, while Harden finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds.

The pair is already hard at work in figuring how to challenge the Golden State Warriors. Harden, however, was able to get an up-close look at the Warriors most recent draft pick.

Jordan Bell – acquired by the Warriors in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft – has a track record of being able to block shots. The Warriors got a sneak peak of what’s to come during the Summer League, in which Bell impressed.

That didn’t change on Sunday, when Bell swatted away a layup attempt from Harden.
