Former Arizona State star James Harden scores 60 in triple-double performance

James Harden is first player in NBA to record 60-point triple double

James Harden became the first player in National Basketball Association history to record a 60-point triple-double as the short-handed Houston Rockets defeated the Orlando Magic 114-107 yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Harden finished the night with a ridiculous stat line of 60 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Obviously, that kind of production speaks for itself and the triple-double achievement will take its rightful place in the history books.

Kyle Anderson and Pau Gasol added 18 points each for the Spurs, who have won four of their past five games. However, with the Cavaliers struggling, the Warriors being overloaded with superstars and the Rockets heating up, Harden will likely emerge as the frontrunner - if he hasn't already - in coming weeks. The owners of five players scored at least 19 points and Andre Drummond scored a double-double-double and received an invitation to the all-star game instead of the injured point guard "Washington" of John wall. He then made the free throw to give him 60 points and bring the crowd to its feet. "I didn't know what the record was", said Harden.

Orlando led by two points with about 9 1/2 minutes left before the Rockets used a 10-4 run to make it 101-97 with about seven minutes to go. Harden attempted only two field goals that weren't in the paint or a three-pointer.

Orlando hung tough by placing six in double figures, led by Hezonja and Marreese Speights with 17 points apiece. Harden averaged 19 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his 2 seasons at Arizona State.

Harden piled up 16 points in the first quarter and had 24 by halftime despite his early 3-point shooting woes. And now, guard Eric Gordon's playing time in the near future is in jeopardy because of lower back stiffness that forced him to leave the game early in the first quarter.

Stanley Johnson scored a career-high 26 points, and Detroit snapped an eight-game losing streak by defeating visiting Cleveland. Coach Mike D'Antoni said he doesn't expect Paul to miss much time with his injury. Now that's insane G! But to get one and also get 60 points is ridiculous.
