James Harden gets 50-15-15 triple double in win
James Harden became the first player in league history to secure a triple double with 50 points, 15 rebounds, and 15 assists, as the Rockets defeated the Knicks 129-122 Saturday. Harden went 9-16 from behind the 3 point line, and single handedly beat any Knick defender who tried to guard him with ease.
As we enter January, the NBA regular season MVP race is between two men, Harden and former teammate Russell Westbrook. The 27-6 Rockets are among the best teams in the NBA, and Harden’s stats (28 points, 8 rebounds, 12 assists) make it hard for you to not give him some votes.
