Harden gets 21st triple-double, leads Rockets past Kings

Cleveland's own has taken a lot of criticism of late due to the Cavs' poor play, but James has still had a spectacular season. The Kings fell behind by as many as 22 to the high-powered Rockets Sunday afternoon, but they kept fighting. Since the All-Star break, James Harden is shooting just 32% on threes while firing up 9.5 of them per game. He scored nine points and made his first three 3-pointers during a 13-minute stint in a 114-109 home loss to the Detroit Pistons on Friday in his return from a six-game absence. To accomplish something so rare surely qualifies a player to win the award generally bestowed upon the league's best player. Both players are putting up statistics that many of us have never seen in our lifetimes. They weren't supposed to be good, so anything that happens will be an over-achievement.

Joerger went to his bench quick, turning to veteran Anthony Tolliver to stem the tide. "This is good for him physically".

"I thought winning is what this is about - period".

"He competed", Kings coach Dave Joerger said of Labissiere. "But I always feel like, as a player, you have a certain rhythm you get into and a way you're playing". I always enjoy watching this type of contest late in the season as it shows the future of the National Basketball Association right before your eyes. Yes, Harden is very valuable to the Rockets - no one could argue with that statement - but Daryl Morey and Mike D'Antoni could, and in my opinion should, win Executive and Coach of the Year respectively. The rookie shooting guard started off hot, scoring 10 points in the first quarter.

Since Anderson sat down with a sprained ankle, the Rockets are 3-3 and Harden has been borderline abysmal.

Harden had 35 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds, leading the Rockets to a 135-128 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

For one, he had a better scoring season. One of the best scorers. After entering the league and carving a name for himself based off his defensive play, Leonard's offensive value has sky-rocketed. Chris Paul steered the offense with 19 points and eight assists, Blake Griffin added 18 points while DeAndre Jordan chipped in with 17 points and 17 rebounds.

Overall, the Thunder put forth a quality game as they had six players - Domantas Sabonis, Singler, Steven Adams, Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Norris Cole - reach double figures. We'll probably regret not giving him the award every year when we look back on this era, but so be it. However, any of the four guys can bring home the hardware, and I doubt there would be an uproar.

Sacramento received plenty of contributions from their veterans. Harden is averaging over 29 points and creating over 27 points per game just off assists alone. He broke down the Rockets defense and set up his teammates for easy baskets.

Tip-off time for the first playoff game hasn't been announced yet, but stay tuned to Space City Scoop for more information as it becomes available.
