Harden wore an absurdly long blue and black attire that made him resemble the Cookie Monster, giving the impression that he was dressed for an appearance in an episode of “Sesame Street” rather than an NBA playoff game.
In video from Bleacher Report, you can see Harden enter TD Garden wearing extremely baggy clothing, so it was undoubtedly some sort of fashion statement he tried to pull off:

Because star player Joel Embiid of the 76ers won’t be available for Game 1 of the series due to injury, Harden may need to dress like that to focus. In Philadelphia’s first-round sweep of the Brooklyn Nets, Harden struggled, scoring 17.3 points on average while shooting only 34.3% from the field.

Nevertheless, Harden did manage to sink 42.4% of his 3-point attempts in addition to 8.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game. The veteran guard may don his peculiar suit again and enjoy some cookies once Harden and the 76ers do well in Game 1 against the Celtics.
