Harden makes history in Rockets’ win
    2018-February-1  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

JAMES HARDEN became the first player in NBA history to score 60 points as part of a triple-double and the short-handed Houston Rockets beat the Orlando Magic 114-107.

“I just gave it all I had tonight,” Harden said. “We all did. We all fought for 48 minutes, we got key stops when we needed to and we made big shots.”

Harden scored 18 points in the fourth quarter to eclipse the 57 points Calvin Murphy scored in 1978 to break Houston’s single-game scoring record. After Harden broke the record, cameras in the arena showed a shot of Murphy, who works on the television broadcast team, smiling and clapping for the Beard, who also had 10 rebounds and 11 assists.

The game was tied at 107 after a basket by Marreese Speights with just under four minutes to play. Neither team scored for more than two minutes after that before Harden took over, scoring the next six points to make it 113-107 with 45 seconds left.

He set the scoring mark when he stepped back and made a 3-pointer before crashing to the court after being fouled by Mario Hezonja. He then made the free throw to give him 60 points and bring the crowd to its feet.

“Amazing and topped it off with a four-point play at the end,” coach Mike D’Antoni said. “But we had to have every minute from him.”

Harden, who also had four steals and a block, grabbed his 10th rebound a few seconds later to give him his third triple double this season.

He made 17 of 18 free throws and was 19 of 30 from the floor with five 3 pointers.

He said he didn’t realize he was the first player with 60 points in a triple-double.

“It’s a good feeling, I guess,” he said. “Just try to go out there and make an impact every single night on the game, however I can. Whether it’s scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, whatever it is. And tonight I guess I was doing everything.”

Hezonja and Speights scored 17 points each for the Magic, who dropped their third straight.

The Rockets started the game without Chris Paul, who has a sore groin, and Trevor Ariza, who is dealing with a strained hamstring. They lost another player when Eric Gordon, who is second on the team in scoring with 19.5 points a game, left early in the second quarter with lower back stiffness.

“I looked at coach and said: ‘Eric can’t go,’” Harden said “He said go get ‘em and after that I didn’t come out of the game.”
