I can't believe he did it myself! James Harden recorded the NBA’s first ever 60 point triple-double last night against the Orlando Magic. The previous record for the most points scored combined with a triple-double was 57 by the 2017 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook.
The Rockets were missing a number of key players last night. Chris Paul (sore groin) and Trevor Ariza (hamstring) equated to 30 points per game missing. In addition, reigning sixth man of the year Eric Gordon left the game early with stiffness in his back. Good job!
