James Harden Buries Warriors After Brutal Kevin Durant Missed Call

James Harden Buries Warriors After Brutal Kevin Durant Missed Call

Harden finished the game with a triple-double - 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds.

But that's not all. Not to mention Harden's walk-off 3-pointer to win the game.

Harden had his fifth straight 40-point game as he led Houston to the overtime victory on Thursday.


The man is unbelievable and on an absurd run right now. It also marked his ninth-straight game with at least 35 points and five assists, an National Basketball Association record. The game went into overtime after Harden missed a 32-footer in the final seconds.

Most impressive of all is that Harden has scored 40 or more points in five straight games, joining Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson as the only players in National Basketball Association history to score that many points in that many consecutive games. "Just an incredible performance, so give him all the credit he deserves". He's averaging more points per game and he's hovering around the same number of assists, and lately he's looked completely impossible to stop even with Chris Paul injured.

That's in line with what Harden has been doing all season long.


The ball would find its way to Stephen Curry who nailed a jumper with 23.1 seconds let to put Golden State up 134-132 before Harden's heroics. It's a welcome sight for the Rockets, to be sure, and Harden is feeling it.

Harden, who was named Western Conference Player of the Month earlier in the day, has gotten exhausted of hearing complaints about all the whistles that are blown in his favor.

"I take my shots, I drive to the basket", Harden said. And then you won't have anything to talk about. "That's what we need to focus on".
