  • Harden: Scoring streak 'something that I just had to do because of our situation'

    The Houston Rockets were a below .500 team and 13th in the West, well back in the playoff picture, when James Harden decided he had to just take over. For 31 games he has scored at least 30 points a night, tying the second-longest streak in NBA history, and in doing so pushed the Rockets up the standings — they are fifth in the West and with a greater than 99 percent chance of making the playoffs according to fivethirtyeight.com — and pushed himself to the front of the MVP race. It was what he felt he had to do, he told Rachel Nichols of ESPN in a sit-down interview for The Jump.

  • James Harden says scoring streak is 'something I have to do to give us a chance'

    Houston Rockets star James Harden isn't scoring 30 points every night because he can, he's doing it because he doesn't have a choice. According to the 29-year-old Harden, his historic scoring streak hasn't continued because he's trying to break records, it's happened because it's necessary, according to ESPN. Harden told Rachel Nicols the scoring streak started because the team was hit by injuries, but he doesn't focus on the streak now that it's become a major talking point.

  • James Harden extends 30-point scoring streak in loss to Timberwolves, tied Wilt Chamberlain for second-longest in history

    Once again, James Harden's impressive scoring streak lives on. Harden dropped 42 points on Wednesday night in the Houston Rockets' 121-111 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center, marking the 31st consecutive game where the reigning league MVP has scored at least 30 points. Chamberlain also holds the top spot on that list at 65 games, which he set during the 1961-62 season.

  • One Way James Harden's Scoring Streak Is More Impressive Than Wilt's

    Harden's streak trails only Wilt Chamberlain's 65-game run from the 1961-62 season — a season in which Wilt happened to set the NBA record by scoring 50.4 points per game. The way Harden has been filling up the scoresheet, Chamberlain comes up as a frequent comparison, continually amazing for those of us who never thought we'd get to see numbers like Wilt's in today's game. But what might be most remarkable about Harden is the way he's different from Chamberlain — specifically, how his one-man show has changed his team's offense.

  • Westbrook extends triple-double streak, Thunder down Rockets

    Thunder team-mate Paul George added 45 points and 11 rebounds as Oklahoma City overturned a 26-point deficit against Houston. James Harden scored 42 points – reaching 30 points for the 29th consecutive game – but missed some big shots down the stretch for the Rockets. Oklahoma City have now won three games in a row, while Houston's three-game winning streak was snapped.
